The King of The New York City Blues returns with what's destined to be one of the most topical and important records of 2004. Twelve tracks of hard hitting, politically inspired songs that run from upholding our first amendment rights in the hard thumping shuffle "Un-American Blues," to protesting the plight of young people dying for the lust of oil and power in "Young Men." Highlights also include "The Top Ten Reasons Why I Can't Sleep At Night," and a high-velocity, hard rock version of the Carter Family classic "Keep On The Sunny Side of Life." In a recent interview Popa was asked, "Where is the outrage in America? Where is the anger over the violation of our rights as Americans and human beings?" Popa simply responded "It is here, and people are waiting for a rallying call, a way and a reason to stand up for their rights as Americans. A way to stand up against the current policies of those in power that do not take in account that America is built on the sweat of the working class."
"…Electric Chubbyland, a two-disc set of Chubby covering Jimi Hendrix songs, appeared from Dixie Frog that same year, and was then repackaged and issued as two single discs by Blind Pig in 2007. In 2008, Chubby released the country-punk-inflected Vicious Country on Dixie Frog, followed by a return to blues rock in 2010 with The Fight Is On. The year 2011 found him moving to the Provogue label for the album Back to New York City. Universal Breakdown Blues followed in 2013 and featured Chubby's cover version of "Over the Rainbow" as its centerpiece."
The one and only Popa Chubby, the big man of the blues, celebrates the 25th anniversary of his career this year, 1989 being the bull’s eye when the blues-rock guitarist blew like a hurricane across the tepid New York City blues scene with his own individual brand of blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll. True to form, Chubby is honoring the quarter-century mark of his career with a brand new album, I’m Feelin’ Lucky, which will be released on October 14th, 2014 by Cleopatra Records.
Two hours of Popa Chubby at the top. This unforgettable concert was filmed on March 27 2004. Popa plays songs from his three latest albums, and demonstrates that his charisma and strong stage presence have a lot to do with his current popularity. His playing bridges the gap between the blues, funk and rock, and even flirts with jazz and country.
