Big Daddy Kinsey and Sons – Can’t Let Go – Cassette
Big Daddy Kinsey and Sons refers to the musical legacy of blues musician and bandleader Donald “Big Daddy” Kinsey and his sons. Donald Kinsey, a guitarist and singer, was known for his significant contributions to the blues genre. His sons, Kenneth Kinsey and Ralph Kinsey, have also been involved in the music industry.
When the Kinsey Report signed on to back their father for Can’t Let Go, the group was at their peak, so it would have made commercial sense for the boys to move their direction. Fortunately, they went the other way, choosing to stick to Chicago blues. The Kinseys don’t play it straight, however, they rock it hard, which energizes Big Daddy and makes Can’t Let Go a thoroughly enjoyable collection of hard-rocking contemporary Chicago blues.
Donald Kinsey gained prominence for his work with the legendary blues artist Albert King and later became a member of the Wailers, Bob Marley’s backing band. His distinctive guitar playing and soulful vocals contributed to the sound of many iconic recordings.
The musical legacy continued with his sons, and they collectively formed Big Daddy Kinsey and Sons. Their music is rooted in the blues tradition, often incorporating elements of soul, funk, and rock. The family band carried on the blues heritage established by Donald Kinsey, creating a dynamic and soulful musical experience.
For those interested in authentic blues music with a touch of family heritage, exploring the recordings and performances of Big Daddy Kinsey and Sons can provide a glimpse into the continuation of a rich musical tradition.
