Album of the Week 7-15-23

Afternoon folks!

This week in the blues category we've got an album from Detroit bluesman and former sideman to John Lee Hooker, Eddie Kirkland. Following that, there's a late 70's B.B. King album.

Moving on to blues-rock, there's a 1977 album from Bonnie Raitt, albums by The Pirates and The Electric Flag. Following that there's some spacey-trippy music from Hawkind and we finish up with an album from Doc Watson - something for everybody? I dunno. Hope so.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
