eugene blacknell 60s-70s

By mike, 05/08/14

This video features rare, vintage footage from the 1960s/70s, including shots of Eugene Blacknell and his band in the Oakland neighborhood they lived in.

Eugene Blacknell's "We Cant Take Life For Granted" is available on iTunes, Amazon and direct at http://www.ubiquityrecords.com


Oakland guitar ace Eugene Blacknell released multiple singles that ranged in style from raw r'n'b to power house funk. His musical career stretched from the early 1960s to the end of the 1980s and during that time he established himself as an East Bay original, an entrepreneur, an activist, and a family man. With so many accomplishments it's an irony of fate that he died before releasing an album despite having recorded enough material for several. This will be the first official Eugene Blacknell album, and the story of a Bay Area legend.
