Blues Currently Spinning

@@djb - Junior Wells sings and plays harmonica - I don't think he's known for his guitar work.  They did play together a lot, but I generally prefer the records on which he is leader, rather than Buddy Guy.

 

cheers

Really enjoying Lonesome Road Blues by Frank Hovington at the moment. Country blues recorded at his home in Delaware in 1975 using the Library of Congress tape recorder. Recently found a copy on Rounder Records released in 1979 that sounds great, particularly considering the recording environment etc.

Been really digging the new Gary Clarke Jr record. Sounds great on vinyl and has one of those awesome, unforgettable covers that can only ever really be appreciated on vinyl cover art.

Great artist with a fresh new take on the blues, fusing various genres to create his sound.

Didn't know you where in Quake City.

 

Only recently found out too, and thought it odd that Vector was chosen. But apparently its the reduced, more intimate stage used.

 

Truth be told, not really enough of a fan to fork out the admission price, tight arse that I am! ;)
