Prime Blues Reviews
“Prime Blues is hands down a must have album. Jim Allchin is right when he says it’s flat out fun. Get yourself a copy and you’ll hear what both he and we mean.”
– American Blues Scene, JD Nash, October 2018
“Jim Allchin is the consummate blues guitarist and vocalist. His brand of the blues is strong, energetic and funky, with impressive horns that complement his voice and guitar riffs. Recommendation: If you love the blues, you must have this album in your collection. Get it today!”
– Bob Leggett, LA Music Critic, October 2018
“…a savory collection of 14 amazing new tracks that dig deeper into the Blues and prove the notion that indeed lightning can strike twice. “
– Rick Bowen, Blues Writer award 2013-2017
“A sensational album but hey that’s why we had to move young Allchin to the top of the class. Score yourself an “A” and get your copy of “Prime Blues” or you will have to stay after class.”
– Peter Merrett, PBS, October 2018
Releasing his debut at a time where there were a lot of people with extra coin taking a breather to chase the dream, you knew that Allchin was one to bet on. Four records in, this white boy with the blues has jacket copy on his latest full of names like Hambridge, Zito, McKendree, Rush, Memphis Horns and more. He delivers. Loaded with gusto and a half, he doesn’t stoop to manqué around when he can keep it his real—which is really good. White boy blues has entered the next level of the game.
