Just how many Jamaican-born bluesmen recorded with John Lee Hooker and toured with Otis Redding? From the safe bet there is only 1: Eddie Kirkland, who involved in some amazing on-stage acrobatics on the years (like sitting on his mind while playing acoustic guitar on TV’s Don Kirshner’s Rock and roll Concert). Nevertheless, you would never discover any ersatz reggae grooves cluttering Kirkland’s function. He was raised around Dothan, Alabama before proceeding north to Detroit in 1943. There he installed with Hooker five years afterwards, documenting with him for many labels in addition to under his very own name for RPM in 1952, Ruler in 1953, and Lot of money in 1959. Tru-Sound Information, a Prestige subsidiary, asked Kirkland to Englewood Cliffs, NJ in 1961-1962 to polish his first record, It is the Blues Guy! The refined R&B music group of saxophonist Ruler Curtis intersected with Kirkland’s extreme vocals, raucous electric guitar, and harmonica through the entire exciting established. Exiting the Electric motor Town for Macon, Georgia in 1962, Kirkland agreed upon on with Otis Redding being a sideman and present opener shortly thereafter. Redding presented Kirkland to Stax/Volt co-owner Jim Stewart, who flipped over Eddie’s primal dance workout “The Hawg.” It had been released on Volt in 1963, billed to Eddie Kirk. With the dawn from the ’70s, Kirkland was documenting for Pete Lowry’s Trix label; he also waxed many CDs for Deluge within the ’90s. Kirkland continued to be active in to the 21st hundred years, and is at Florida to execute at a present within the Gulf Coastline community of Dunedin when he passed away from injuries suffered when the vehicle he was generating collided using a Greyhound bus in Crystal River on Feb 27, 2011. Eddie Kirkland was 87 yrs . old.
