Monuments in Ruin - Chapter 184

Monuments in Ruin - Chapter 184

Playing tracks by

Monuments in Ruin, Rose Mitchell, The Isley Brothers, Etta James, Ella Jenkins and more.

Chart positions

This show was 50th in the global blues chart.

This week we return with a companion episode for the previous gospel & blues show. Ep 184 keeps that vibe shifting forward to begin tapping into some darker lyric content and slowly bring in a little bit of a rock element to really solidify the overall sadness and emotion that blues can deliver.
Originally aired on on July 12th, 2021.
Produced and edited by Bobby Rayfield for broadcast on the TrendKill Radio Network.

Wonderful show, brother. Loved all the obscure covers, loved all the obscure blues. Very well done.

So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for your support, C.I. :) It was fun to assemble so many songs that have been referenced dozens of times over. Some by Led Zep, AC/DC and Ten Years After to name a popular few.
