The Blues Goes On

The Blues Goes On

There was never a band actually called "The Blues Goes On". The band on this is said to be the very last incarnations of The Chicago Sect and/or Greenlight (apparently one band turned into the other), before they split with members going on to Leinemann and Subway.
Composers are credited as: Kolberg, Timbel, Buddi, Icem and Randolph - which are all pseudonyms, so the actual line-up is a mystery. The only actual known musician is one Wolf Rimmler, a Hamburg jazz and blues session musician, who features on the track "Rimmler Blues".
This is the only LP that the band ever released.

The Ken label that released "The Blues Goes On" was a budget supermarket brand like Music For Pleasure, Maritim or Europa, who released genre albums (buying tapes for the right to release, with no contracts or royalties) often with no actual band name credited either. Unusual for such a label, this release was a gatefold cover (with nice psychedelic imagery inside). Some copies were stickered: Original US Top-LP DM 10,- (that's GBP 2.89 / USD 6.90 at the time)
