This week there's more great stuff. There's a Muddy Waters live album, an album by a fairly obscure Texas blues artist, Weldon "Juke Boy" Bonner and another Mississippi John Hurt album recorded after his "rediscovery" by folk music enthusiasts. There's an album by harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite, two Savoy Brown albums and a late 70's album by Peter Green.

Enjoy!

Afternoon folks!

More great stuff! Muddy Waters. Sonny Boy Williamson with Jimmy Page - recorded in 1965 when Page was mostly working as a studio sideman, there are only hints of his later style, but Sonny Boy is great of course. Jimmy Reed and Charlie Musselwhite for a little more harmonica goodness. There's John Mayall's transition album to a more jazz-infused style, a mid-70's Savoy Brown album and some bluegrass with the Doug Dillard Band and fiddler Byron Berline.

Enjoy!

I've got some great stuff for you guys this weekend. There's a late period Mississippi John Hurt album from the great folk scare of the 60's where he recaps his "hits" for the fellows who "rediscovered" him. There's some great blues from Rockin' Tabby Thomas and a whole pile of blues rock follows. There's Dr. Feelgood, Love Sculpture (with Dave Edmunds) and The Yardbirds.

Enjoy!
