Listen here to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling:

There was a great selection of new releases to choose from this time around and plenty of joys amongst them too! We revisited super group, The Rides, for their swinging version of a song that was very much signature number for the original Paul Butterfield Blues Band, ‘Born In Chicago’. We heard from  Sugarman Sam & The Voodoo Men with ‘Some Kind Of Voodoo’ from their current album ‘Record Store Education’ and there was a big thanks to Red Butler for a preview track from their forthcoming album. Jane Lee Hooker and Keb Mo brought new versions of well known songs and it all kicked off with The Blues Rebels and a track from their new album ‘Voodoo Land’.

When there’s so much good stuff to play, it’s easy to lose track of time . . . and we did. A glance at the clock confirmed we were running out of time, but we decidedGolden State Lone Star Blues Review we were not going quietly . . . because we headed for the end of the show with Californian band, the Golden State Lone Star Blues Review, featuring harpman Mark Hummel along with Anson Funderburgh and Little Charlie Baty. This was their full tilt version of Jimmy McCracklin’s ‘Georgia Slop’. Then it was all over, except for collecting up the records and CDs and hoping our playlist had been sufficient to encourage folks to come back, same time, same place, next week. So, until the next time The Blues Come Calling . . . remember . . . have fun!
