In 1990, Little Mike & the Tornadoes got their own recording contract with Blind Pig, a San Francisco-based label, and his output has been quite prolific since then. The group's first album, Heart Attack, includes guest performances by Perkins, Paul Butterfield, and Sumlin. Two years later, he recorded Payday, also for Blind Pig, before recording his debut for Flying Fish Records (a label that has since been acquired by Rounder Records), Flynn's Place.
Markowitz is an extremely hard working, level-headed blues musician who will no doubt surface again and again on records, whether for Rounder or for some other label. All three of Markowitz's albums are available on compact disc, and worth seeking out. ~ Richard Skelly, Rovi
