Well I hope everyone had a rock n roll Thanksgiving. One thing I am thankful for is the city of Memphis and its history of churning out bad ass music. One of those bands is ’68 Comeback. Named after Elvis’s career resurrecting live television special of 1968, ’68 Comeback is the brainchild of prolific Memphis blues rock n’ roller Jeffery Evans. Consisting of Evans and a revolving cast of Memphis musicians, ’68 Comeback has released nearly two dozen recordings from the band’s inception in 1992. The band is considered a staple of the Memphis garage scene that has produced Jay Reatard (RIP), The Oblivians, The Reigning Sound, and The Compulsive Gamblers.

Here are two of ’68 Comeback’s albums, 1994’s “Mr. Downchild” and 1999’s “Love Always Wins”. Jack White, you can learn a thing or two for Monsieur Evans.
