Blues singer ZZ Hill first made records for Atlantic, Kent, and in 1971 scored his first big hit for United Artists, followed by others on Columbia. In the 80 s he single-handedly started a blues revival in the USA with the smash-it "Down Home Blues". "The Brand New ZZ Hill" was originally marketed as a Blues Opera, an oddity back in the early seventies, and was written by Swamp Dogg and Gary U.S. Bonds. When released it hit both the Billboard Top 200 and the R&B charts and sold over a million singles via six releases.
The album has been REMASTERED for this release and is presented here with its ORIGINAL ALBUM GATEFOLD COVER.
The CD DIGIPAK comes with 8 bonus tracks and NEW LINER NOTES by producer Swamp Dogg.
