Eddie C. Campbell - Mind Trouble
In 1984, Campbell left Chicago for Europe, settling initially in the Netherlands, later in Duisburg, Germany. He worked there for a decade before returning to Chicago in the 1990s.
Campbell's latest album is Spider Eating Preacher (Delmark, 2012). It was nominated fro a Blues Music Award in 2013 in the 'Traditional Blues Album' category.
In February 2013, Campbell suffered a stroke and a heart attack while on tour in Germany, leaving him paralysed on the right side of his body. His wife Barbara then started an Eddie C. Campbell Assistance Fund to raise money to fly him back to Chicago for further medical treatment.
This is not the best pressing around as it jumps now and then but you can always buy the re-issue CD on Wolf Records if you really want top quality sound.
