Biography

Tragically under-recorded until later in his career, Chicago blues guitarist Andrew Dark brown still had time more than enough to wax a small number of great singles through the mid-’60s and two ’80s albums (sadly, both of these were just available simply because imports) that magnificently showcased his fluid, concise lead guitar and hearty vocals. The Mississippi indigenous shifted to Chicago in 1946. With Earl Hooker teaching him several key licks, Dark brown matured quickly; he was playing in south suburban night clubs — his primary circuit — by the first ’50s. His 45s for USA (1962’s “You Better Prevent”) and 4 Brothers (the middle-’60s edges “You need to be Ashamed” and “Can’t ENABLE YOU TO Go”) had been well-done metropolitan blues. Nonetheless it wasn’t until 1980, when Alligator released three of his tunes on its second batch of Living Chicago Blues anthologies, that Brown’s name started to resonate beyond your Windy City. Maker Dick Shurman was in charge of Brown’s just two albums: the Handy Award-winning Big Brown’s Chicago Blues for Dark Magic in 1982 and On the situation for Double Problems three years later on. But Brown had been experiencing lung cancer once the second LP surfaced. He died a short while later on.
