The originators of ‘Oz Blues’, Chain, have reached another milestone as they are about to enter their 52nd year since first forming in 1968.
As the only blues band to have a number one on Australian charts (Black’n’Blue) as well as a number two (Judgement), they also have the distinction of having possibly the longest permanently released album in Australian rock history.
‘Toward the Blues’ has been released since 1971 and has attained double gold album status
Although ‘I Remember When I Was Young’ was a Matt Taylor single it was Chain who played on it. This also went to number one on the charts.
With ‘Chain Awards’ honouring their achievements at the Australian Blues Festival (Goulburn) & as the first act listed in the new blues section of Screensound (National Archives) the accolades still continue.
