King Biscuit Boy's 'Good 'Uns' Turns 50 This Year

This year (2022), Good 'Uns the second album from the legendary Hamilton Bluesman, King Biscuit Boy turns 50 years old.


We asked various members of the local music scene for their thoughts on the album. Here are their responses:

Ian Andrews

It's a hearty blues stew with remarkable flavors of sound; seasoned with tales of reckless living, rambunctious Cajun grooves, and a 'mouth of steel' charisma that impacts every listener and puts them in the heart of contentful chaos that resolves in grace. A great musical influence gone but not forgotten.
Ken Wallis (BluesSource Canada)
King Biscuit Boy’s album was the only album I ever owned that came wrapped in burlap. I think that was because inside the music was so hot that it needed a sturdy cover to stop the music from leaking out. The album is filled with classic King Biscuit Boy. His harmonica soars into the blues stratosphere. Just listen to Boom Boom Out Goes The Light. It is classic King Biscuit Boy and this was always the last song he’d play to close out a live gig. Hamilton was lucky to have witnessed such a talent.
