A very bluesy welcome to this week’s edition of the Blues Come Calling. January has brought a fistful of new releases, which we made very welcome and introduced to some ‘seasoned’ favourites, one of which by The Powder Blues Band kicked off our show.
One of the new releases came from Jim Koeppel, in the form of his latest album which includes some fine harp from Billy Branch as well as Jim’s notable talents. In April, we’re promised the new album by Detroit bluesman Marcus Malone. In the meantime, we’re plundering the preview copy of the album from Redline Music.
Hopefully, we cheered the lovers of scratchy blues with William Harris’s 1928 Bull Frog Blues. We also found Maria Muldaur’s take on Memphis Minnie’s ‘In My Girlish Ways’ with some tasty guitar work from bluesman Roy Rogers. Then, to prove our international credentials we featured the first release by Backbone Cast, a five piece band from Tampere, Finland.
. . . and there's more . . . check it out!
