Wayne Goins, university distinguished professor of music, wrote the liner notes for the recently released album recorded by the legendary blues guitarist Christone "Kingfish" Ingram. Titled "662," Goins was selected by world-renown record label owner Bruce Iglauer of Alligator Records to produce the liner notes to accompany the hot new album by the superstar blues guitarist who was recently featured on NPR.

Goins, who serves as regular CD reviewer for Living Blues magazine, published a feature article on Ingram's first self-titled album, "Kingfish," released in 2019. Goins' CD review was chosen as one of two articles he wrote chosen as the magazine's top 10 reviews. The guitarist's manager, Ric Whitney, collaborated with Iglauer to tap Goins for the role of producing the extensive liner that accompanies the new album.
