Taj Mahal, Taj’s Blues
in stores 3/1

VIA PRESS RELEASE | The remarkable Taj Mahal, for over fifty years an intrepid explorer of arcane musical Americana, is the subject of a twelve track compilation of material culled from his lengthy tenure with the Columbia Records label, entitled Taj’s Blues, to be released on Friday, March 1st 2019, on the Retroworld reissue division of the North London indie label, Floating World.

Taj’s Blues features his distinctive interpretation of classic material such as “Statesboro Blues,” “Frankie & Albert,” “Dust My Broom” and others, and offers a superb point of entry to the recorded works of this thoughtful, dynamic musician. Taj began his career as a member of the US West Coast combo The Rising Sons, alongside Ry Cooder, before setting off on a solo career that has endured through to the present day.

He was one of the guest artists on the infamous Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus movie, filmed late in 1968, and has always enjoyed a substantial following in the UK and mainland Europe ever since. Alongside Ry Cooder, Van Dyke Parks, Leon Redbone, Asleep at the Wheel, and very few others, Taj has blazed a trail drawing attention to the dusty, often forgotten hinterlands of twentieth century music, some of the finest moments of which are featured on Taj’s Blues.
