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!

Album of the Week 7-8-23

Afternoon folks!

I've cleaned up and digitized a bunch of good stuff in the last couple of weeks. Starting off, there's an early 70's Etta James album on which she does some amazing covers of Randy Newman songs. After that, Art Neville (the elder Neville brother) has a compilation of early New Orleans rock n roll - great stuff!

There's scads of blues-rock this week with The Electric Flag, a Dr. Feelgood album from their early period with Wilko Johnson on guitar and and album from a less-well-known british artist Lord Sutch (sometimes known as "Screaming Lord Sutch") which features people you'll probably recognize - Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, John Bonham, Nicky Hopkins and Noel Redding.

After that, there's what I think is John Prine's best album "Diamonds in the Rough," and we finish up this week with some fun older recordings from Ukulele Ike.
