Album of the Week - 5-11-24

Afternoon folks!

We've got some great music this week starting off with Muddy Waters' classic Woodstock album and an album by New Orleans piano player Cousin Joe. After that we've got serious blues-rock with albums from Duke Tumatoe & The Power Trio, Downchild, Roy Buchanan (I think it's his last one) and Creedence Clearwater Revival's Bayou Country. After that we've got DC localish band Root Boy Slim's first album and we finish off with a straight 80's rock album from the Swimming Pool Q's.

Enjoy the tunes and have a great weekend!

Hi Joe,

great stack o'disks as always!

I think that was the last of the three Alligator Records Buchanan albums. All three are stellar. I love High Wire, Flash Chordin, Sunset over Broadway, and Goose Grease. To me they are his final four 'N0N-blues' songs. Each unique and fantastic in their own ways. He was really firin' on all cylinders on them. Goose Grease is hilarious... No ever heard anything like the sounds in High Wire or Flash Chordin'! Cuttin' edge pushin' the limits ...

Thanks for the great sounds!
