Robert Bradley’s Blackwater Surprise New Ground CD

20 March 2011

Store date: 5 February 2002

Robert Bradley’s Blackwater Surprise, the band, was a featured artist on the Laser’s Edge CD Sampler of 2002. Vanguard Records, who released New Ground – from which the Sampler track “See Her” was taken – also provided the store with a quantity of autographed copies of the CD as sales incentives for our customers. Here is a shot of the one I kept, with all five band members’ signatures: clockwise, from upper left, are Jeff Fowlkes, Matt Ruffino, Tommy Wilber, Randall Sky and Robert Bradley. Above Bradley’s initials is another signature that looks like it could be “Robert Bradley,” but I can’t say for sure.

Robert Bradley is an Alabama native who was discovered playing the blues as a blind street performer in Detroit. He was brought in as lead vocalist by this group of musicians to form Robert Bradley’s Blackwater Surprise in 1994, and the band released their debut on RCA Records in 1996.
