Title - 'Bootleg Whiskey' (Malaco Records)
Artist - Grady Champion

Guitarist, singer, harmonica player, and songwriter Grady Champion released two very impressive recordings in 1999 and 2001 for Shanachie Records. Both his debut, Payin' for My Sins, and 2 Days Short of a Week put Champion on the national touring blues map and helped launch his career beyond the boundaries of his native Jackson, Mississippi.

His brand new album, Bootleg Whiskey showcases 11 new tracks, and although it only runs just close to 45 minutes, the album is a joy to behold; each and every track. Ranging from the slow and spiritual heights to a lively jitterbug beat, Bootleg Whiskey brings to life stories that we only thought existed in overheard conversational hearsay.

This delightful, flavorful new album begins with 'Beg, Borrow And Steal,' before heading into the title track, 'Bootleg Whiskey' and then the revealing, 'Don't Waste My Time.' Up next is 'Home Alone,' which is backed by both 'Ten Dollars' and 'South Side.'

From the inception of his career as a blues performer, Champion has sought to tackle new lyrical themes with his original compositions. As a triple-threat harmonica player, guitarist, and songwriter, he accomplishes that in grand style on the following tracks, such as both 'Who Dat' and 'Here We Go Y'all.' Grady then brings the album home with a stunning threesome: 'I Tripped And Fell In Love,' 'Mr. Right,' and the stirring, 'White Boy With the Blues.'
