SWEET ‘N’ SALTY – I Done Told Ya (Independent)

This duo consists of Libby Rae Watson from Pascagoula, Mississippi, who was mentored in the blues by the late, great Sam Chatmon, the last surviving member of The Mississippi Sheiks (of 1930’s ‘Sitting On Top Of The World’ fame), and hence the reason behind the…

Steven Troch Band/ “Rhymes For Mellow Minds” (Sing My Title SMT-009)

Russ Green – City Soul (Cleopatra Records)

City Soul is Russ Green’s debut album and he comes out of the traps with in your face wailing harp and slide guitar on First Thing Smokin’. This is a rocking boogie of an opener, tipping nods to Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker on the way. The pace changes for the slower, sultry Blues of Believe In Love…

Joe Bonamassa -- British Blues Explosion (Provogue)

I’ve been following Joe for a number of years now and his live performances are always scintillating, none more than this carnival of British Blues. Celebrating the music of Beck, Clapton and Page, he romps though some classics and other lesser known tracks from this era. Highlights are the Blues Rock of…

Steve Hill – The One-Man Blues Rock Band (Manhaton Records)

I’ve always thought it brave of bands to release live albums but a one-man band? No wiggle room but Hill breezes it from the Blues Rock opener, Rhythm All Over to the finale, a fine cover of Voodoo Chile (Slight Return). It’s not just Blues Rock (Dangerous and Never Is Such A Long Time), but Delta Blues…
