Australian Rhythm & Blues is the eighth album by Australian blues band Chain, originally released in April 1988 via RCA BMG and reissued by Forever Records.

Formed from the remnants of Perth band The Beaten Tracks in 1968, Chain were named after the classic soul track "Chain of Fools" by the band's early vocalist Wendy Saddington. The band's debut album, the classic Live Chain, recorded at Caesar's Palace discotheque, was released in June 1970, and shortly after the band signed a deal with Infinity Records. Chain's first single, "Black and Blue", reached number ten on the Australian charts in May 1971, followed by the album Toward the Blues, which peaked at number six in 1971 and placed Chain alongside other Australian acts like Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs, Carson, and The Adderley Smith Blues Band, at the forefront of the Australian blues movement.

 

Recorded at Planet Studios, Perth, and Platinum Studios, Melbourne, with the live recordings taking place at the Mossman Park Hotel and the Floriat Hotel, Australian Rhythm & Blues features Matt Taylor (Vocals/Harmonica), John Meyer (Lead Guitar), Barry "Little GooseHarvey (Drums), and Roy Daniel (Bass).

Australian Rhythm & Blues features the band's only live recording of the classic Chain song "Grab a Snatch".

This is a great selection of both studio and live recordings and a must have for any Chain fan to add to their record collection. This is one of "The Captain's" favourite Chain albums.

Check out the tracks 'Messin' With Soul", "Grab a Snatch", "Harmonica" , "Black and Blue" and "Second Wind".

This reissued CD is housed in a jewel case and was made in Australia via Forever Records under their "Forever Collection Series".
