Popa Chubby Retrospective Set For Release December 18, 2010

Posted by David W. King in Uncategorized.

Blind Pig Records has announced a December 14 release date for The Essential Popa Chubby, a budget-priced CD from the high octane New York guitarist.

For this special collection, Popa Chubby hand-picked sixteen of the hottest fan favorites from his ten Blind Pig releases over the past decade.

This electrifying selection showcases not only his hard-charging fire and brimstone, but also Popa’s engaging storytelling, versatility and distinctive fusing of differing genres and styles such as old school R&B, rap, funk, outlaw country, melodic rock, and blues.

Popa Chubby first come to prominence with his breakout early 90’s hit “Sweet Goddess of Love and Beer” from the Tom Dowd produced Booty And The Beast album.

Since then the prolific guitarist and songwriter has released ten CDs and a live performance DVD for indie roots label Blind Pig.

Popa’s highly creative fusion of rock ‘n’ roll with traditional blues and R&B styles led Billboard to say, “If Muddy Waters was a modern blues artist, then Popa Chubby is a post-modern bluesman.”

And the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette summed it up well with the comment, “Popa Chubby is a blues rocker whose take-no-prisoners blues rock screams with the defiance of the best scorched-earth rock ‘n’ roll filtered through his bluesy id.”
