This week’s Blues show will feature a mix of new and archival blues recordings. Some of the new releases this year include Paul Allen, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, and Amos Lee. The show ends with some favorites by Jeff Black, the Allman Brothers, and local guitar wizard Scotty Anderson.
This week’s Blues show starts off with a new song from German musician Tony Hudspeth called “Good Times.”
Kudos to Steeplejack Music in Germany for sending us his cd. The rest of the program features some of my personal favorites like “Nite Mist Blues” by the Monty Alexander Trio, plus Chet Baker and Johnny Adams.
