Jeden z bardziej niedocenianych bluesmanów chicagowskiej sceny. Naładowany emocjami głos Campbella, cenione teksty i mistrzowski kunszt gry na gitarze przysporzył mu całkiem okazałe grono fanów w USA. Jednak poza stanami pozostaje wciąż mało znany.
Eddie C. Campbell to ostatni, żyjący z wielkich reprezentantów gitarowego 'West Side', którego najsłynniejszymi przedstawicielami byli Magic Sam i Luther Allison.
Ma za sobą współpracę z czołowymi muzykami gatunku - Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Little Walter, w latach 70. był członkiem Willie Dixon's Chicago Blues All-Stars band.

Editor's info:
Eddie C. Campbell brings his unmistakably individual, engaging and memorable verve and variety and his command of the Chicago blues tradition to Tear This World Up, his most fully realized chapter in a highly regarded discography which has generated covers by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Lee Atwater and a Christmas staple. Eddie has long been a master of classic Chicago blues, but always his own man, turning out venues worldwide with funk and rock & roll as well as blues, all with his rich, wide-ranging vocals, the trademark reverb-drenched sound of his vintage metallic purple Fender Jazzmaster guitar and creative songwriting.

All About Jazz:
A native of Duncan, Mississippi, guitarist/vocalist Eddie C. Campbell is one of the last of the originators of the West Side sound of Chicago blues still performing in their prime. Campbell began his recording career with a handful of singles in the sixties, but the record that put him on the blues map was King of the Jungle (Mr. Blues, 1977). Tear This World Up is Campbell's debut for Delmark Records and a sizzling set of funky blues served up Chicago-style.
Campbell plays wild, open-ended guitar solos that swing hard and stay true to a down home blues feeling. His sound is enhanced with plenty of reverb and vibrato, reminiscent of Johnny 'Guitar' Watson, especially on the disc's two instrumental tracks, 'It's So Easy' and 'All Nite.' The latter, a remake of a 45 Campbell recorded in the 60s, is an ultra-hip jump blues-one of many on the recording-featuring the solid boogie piano playing of Karl 'Little Daddy' Outten.

The guitarist pays tribute to his friend, and fellow West Side innovator, the late Magic Sam on Sam's 'Easy Baby' and 'Love Me With a Feeling.' Here Campbell digs in deep to capture the emotional qualities of Sam's signature guitar and vocal styling. Campbell also pays homage to another giant of Chicago blues past, Howlin' Wolf, on Wolf's 12/8 grinder 'My Last Affair.'

Straight-forward shuffles like 'Tie Your Time Up' and 'Vibrations in the Air' showcase Campbell's comforting vocal delivery; a warm growl with the occasional falsetto and drawn-out moan. These qualities give credence to his story telling lyrics which offer first-hand accounts of the life of a seasoned blues musician.

The tight horn section of trumpeter Chuck Parrish, tenor saxophonist Sam Burckhardt and baritone saxophonist Juli Wood bring a punchy vibe to a handful of tunes. Drummer Marty Binder and bassist Dario Golliday keep each groove tight and crisp, rolling along with ease. The rhythm section shines bright on the syncopated funk of 'Care.'

The disc closes with the autobiographical acoustic track 'Bluesman.' Here Campbell recites an incomparable list of legendary musicians he's been associated with. With or without such an impressive resume, Tear This World Up offers proof of Campbell being a living blues master
