DELMARK CELEBRATES 55 YEARS OF BLUES AT BUDDY GUY'S LEGENDS IN CHICAGO In 1965, Delmark Records released Junior Wells' now-classic Hoodoo Man Blues, a full-bore blast of modern urban juke-joint revelry at its most potent. After the success of Hoodoo Man Blues, Delmark stepped up its recruitment of contemporary blues artists. Magic Sam, J.B. Hutto, Jimmy Dawkins, and Carey Bell soon became Delmark mainstays; many also forged successful national and international performing careers on the strength of their Delmark recordings. The label that had gotten its start as a "purists- imprint had remade itself into a bold purveyor of innovative, contemporary sounds. And that is exactly what Delmark has remained into the present day. Delmark's 55th anniversary blues bash at Buddy Guy's Legends on March 7, 2008 featured most of Delmark's local blues roster, a Delmark Day proclamation from Mayor Daley and a Grammy Hall Of Fame Award for the groundbreaking Hoodoo Man Blues album.
