ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Muddy Waters, in the early '70's, said "Mark is my favorite. He's the best of all the new blues guitar players."
Mark honed his skills from what he learned backing and opening for the best including Muddy. Mark played lead guitar for James & Lucky Peterson in 1969 - 1970 on the road, as well as at The Legendary Governor's Inn in Buffalo, NY.
Mark also backed Chuck Berry, Luther "Georgia Boy Johnson", and John Lee Hooker. During the 1960's and '70's he played many shows opening for the likes of Otis Rush, Hound Dog Taylor, Freddie King, Little Eva, The Allman Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, T-Bone Walker, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Albert Collins, Chicken Shack, Ricky Nelson, Junior Wells & Buddy Guy, Savoy Brown, Paul Butterfield, Big Mama Thornton, and many other blues greats. In the '80's, '90's, & 2000's Mark has opened for Joan Osborn, Savoy Brown, Joe Beard, and others. Mark is one of the best kept secrets of the blues guitar world who learned well from his mentors. He plays slide as well as straight single note finger playing. His bends are reminicient, of B.B. Albert, and Freddie King. His slide playing owes to Elmore James and Muddy Waters. He is a great interpreter of '50's, '60's blues and also has great modern blues originals. He's the closest thing to a Stevie Ray Vaughan without being a Stevie Ray clone. Mark honed his skills before he or anyone in the blues world knew who Stevie Ray was.
Mark has had articles written about him in Blues Review Magazine. Bob Margolin stated in his column that Mark's 1968 band "Driving Sideways" was light years ahead of its time in reference to the blues bands of the 2000's. He also stated that Mark's guitar playing was the same comparing him to those who came later.
What can be said about Mark is that his guitar playing is sparkling, energetic, exciting, and true to the blues. If you love the guitar of Albert King, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Mike Bloomfield, Otis Rush and Hound Dog Taylor, you'll love Mark. His guitar playing is of the same quality.
