"DANNY, well known prodigy to the Swedish blues audience has after 2 albums and over 300 gigs with The Young Guns started the jump blues band of his dreams: THE CAPPERS!

He teamed up with some of his favorite musicians and best friends, to form a small Rhythm & Blues combo with a big sound. Already from the start, the band became somewhat of a sweetheart to the members, who during their first rehearsal were so blown away that they just couldnt stop. They surely felt that this was something special, and if not the blisters on their hands gave them away.This band will take you right back to the jumping sound of L.A.`s Central Avenue clubs. So, if youre looking for a band that will make you scream & shout: bring your friends, wear your finest dancing shoes and jump your blues away!

- Anna Bergman. August 2003

"The Blues Down Town story continues with the release of this new album which coincides with the band's 20th anniversary. Two good reasons for celebration!

As with previous albums by Blues Down Town this new album contains a nice mix of Chicago blues tracks and other styles showing to great advantage the band's versatility, songwriting abilities and strong sense for the real thing. To amplify the anniversary two livetracks, one vintage and one new, are included as bonus material on the album. In addition some great guests appear on this album namely Marcus "Little Marc" Andersson from "Knock-Out Greg and the Blue Weather" on drums, Fredrik "Mighty Fred" Gustafsson who plays with Sven Zetterberg Blues Band on piano and Jakob "Big Jake" Norgren from Danny & The Cappers on tenor- and barytonsaxophone."

"His tone is awesome." -Sven Zetterberg

"Sture Elldin plays in a style that is rearely heard nowadays. His trademark is an extremely fat and compressed tone, almost only heard by greats as Walter Horton. His phrasing is suggestive in its simplicity - he can repeat a sequence over and over until you're mesmerized. He is a truly powerful interpreter of the Chicago blues tradition."
-Jan Sjöström, Harmonica Henry & The Blues Rockers

"This guy's got something to tell you by the way his razor-sharp tone cuts you deep into your soul."
-Lasse Ohlsson, The Nightcats

"Sture's steady flow of big blue notes is heavy weight harpblowin." -Stefan Dafgård, The Instigators

"Big tone harp! In short the bluest blues..."
-Thomas Grahn, Blues Down Town

Blues Obsession
Tighten Up On It
I Walked The Streets

"On this,their third album for the CeePeeVee Record label, them gentlemen in the band prove their affection for South Side and West Side Chicago Blues, reflected in the co-mingling of wellknown stuff like "The Same Thing" and "Stockyard Blues", with some selfpenned tunes in the same tradition. One can also note that on this new disc the Blues Down Town band goes somewhat further beyond their core style with thrilling performances of jumpblues, various southern styles and swampblues in the Louisiana tradition, all treated with feeling and respect."

"The fabulous guests featured on this album namely Per "Stockholm Slim" Notini on piano and Tommy "J.T." Holmström on tenor saxophone, strongly contribute to the outcome of the session. "Stockholm Slim" has been around since the early 60´s and is perhaps best known for his pianowork on singer/ guitarist Magic Sam´s groundbreaking album"West Side Soul", recorded in Chicago 1967 and issued on the Delmark label. Slim has also toured and recorded with R&B stars like Nappy Brown and Ruth Brown to name a few. "J.T." Holmström is also a veteran on the music scene and has been blowing his horn in a number or the leading R&B and bluesbands. It´s a plesure to have these guys performing on this new album!"

JAN HENRY SJÖSTRÖM, HANK JANSSON and STEFAN SUNDLÖF have during the last two decades acquired a well established position on the Scandinavian bluesscene mainly trough their many years in the CHICAGO EXPRESS, characterised as a band of world class.But the story of the BLUES ROCKERS started a bit earlier.Already in 1975 Sjöström and Jansson formed the group.

Sjöström has with his powerful and deep harmonica, joined the high ranks of international harp players. He has been the driving force for the Swedish blues since the seventies. The press has called the band one of Scandinavias foremost bluesbands.

Blus Down Town CD State Of Blue

April 1, 2006: CPVCD101 Out Of Stock
Our very first record, Blues Down Town - State of blue, is sold out and can't be ordered no more.

The Blues Down Town story started in 1983 when Tomas Prim and Thomas Grahn founded the group in Stockholm,Sweden. The current lineup took shape in 1992 and the band has during the years developed and refined a distinct sound. With the lionpart of the material being selfpenned the band now takes another step in shaping their interpretation of the blues but with a close approach to the more traditional styles and styles and sound of the Chicagoblues and southern/ westcoast blues styles.
