Christone “Kingfish” Ingram – 662

Release Date: July 23, 2021

Label: Alligator Records

ALCD 5005

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram hails from the city of Clarksdale, in Coahoma County, Mississippi, just ten miles from the legendary crossroads of Highways 61 and 49. A blues guitar prodigy, Ingram proudly carries on the legacy of Mississippi Hill Country Blues. The title track is honest blues played to near-perfection. 662 an uptempo autobiographical track that shuffles along and ends with a mean wonderful instrumental. She Calls Me Kingfish is a strutting blues number that tells of the eternal difficulties of love. Ingram’s voice has developed to keep up while he sets the roof on fire with his guitar. Too Young To Remember may be the album’s emotional core. It boasts a searing rock riff reminiscent of early Led Zeppelin. The record culminates with Rock & Roll, a tribute to his mother.
