John Brim


John Brim could be best-known for composing and cutting the initial “Snow Cream Guy” that David Lee Roth and Vehicle Halen covered on the first album. That is clearly a pity, for the significantly under-recorded Brim produced some remarkably hard-nosed waxings. Brim found his early acoustic guitar licks through the 78s of Tampa Crimson and Big Expenses Broonzy before venturing 1st to Indianapolis in 1941 and Chicago four years later on. He fulfilled his wife Elegance in 1947; fortuitously, she was an able drummer who performed on many of John’s information. Actually, she was the vocalist on the 1950 solitary for Detroit-based Lot of money Information that signaled the start of her hubby’s discography. John documented for Random, Work, Al Benson’s Bird logo design (the socially aware “A DOWN ECONOMY”), and Chess (“Rattlesnake,” his response to Big Mama Thornton’s “Hound Puppy,” was drawn through the shelves by Chess for concern with a plagiarism match). Cut in 1953, the suggestive “Snow Cream Guy” had to hold back until 1969 to take pleasure from an extremely belated launch. Brim’s last Chess solitary, “I’D Hate to find out YOU DECIDE TO GO,” was waxed in 1956 having a stellar combo comprising harpist Small Walter, guitarist Robert Jr. Lockwood, bassist Willie Dixon, and drummer Fred Below (obviously, Chess got high expectations for Brim, but to no avail). Following a hiatus of several decades, Brim produced a welcome go back to studio room action using a established for Tone-Cool Information, The Glaciers Cream Guy. Brim, who resided in Gary, IN, continued to be energetic on the Chicago blues picture until his moving on Oct 1, 2003 at age 81.
