Biography

Born in Memphis in 1934, harpist-percussionist Alex “Easy Baby” Randle was among the myriad journeyman blues musicians who began working south- and west-side clubs during the postwar years. After being discovered in the mid-70s while leading a band at the Rat Trap on West Cermak, he recorded for Barrelhouse and appeared on several harmonica anthologies. In 2002 he launched something of a comeback with If It Ain’t One Thing, It’s AnotherIf It Ain’t One Thing, It’s Another. His huff-and-puff harpwork shows the effects of age, but his gritty vocals still register as intense. Eddie Taylor Jr., one of the few younger African-American bluesmen dedicated to preserving the postwar Chicago style, joins him on guitar. Mac Thompson played bass guitar.
