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

Well, whatever else might be happening in the world, we try to preserve a little oasis of good company and great sounds every week, here on The Blues Come Calling. This week was no exception and we arrived with new releases from Joe Bonamassa, Gary Hoey, David Vest, The Steve Summers Band and Redhouse. There was a little scratchy blues and a few past favourites for good measure too.

But, we kicked off our hour of the best of the blues with a preview of the new album by Joe Bonamassa. The album, ‘Live at The Greek Theatre’ is due for release on September 23rd and pays tribute to the three Kings of the blues – Albert King, B.B. King, and Freddie King. So, we gave ourselves a rousing start to the show with Joe’s ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ and followed on with something from an album called ‘Blues Stop Knockin’, featuring Lazy Lester & Jimmie Vaughan on ‘Ponderosa Shuffle’.Joe Bonamassa - Live at The Greek Theatre

Now there are some albums that creep up on you from behind and become real earworms and David Vest’s latest album, ‘Devestatin’ Rhythm’, is one of those. So, you won’t be surprised that it’s been getting plenty of plays here, including our playlist choice ‘Biscuit Rollin’ Baby’, with plenty of David’s fine piano and vocal work.

If you come across an album called ‘Rainmakin’ by blues trio, The Steve Summers Band, do give it a listen because we liked it and particularly the track titled ‘Second Hand Blues’, which brought this week’s show nearly to the end. But, we found time to say our farewells, with the hope that you’ll be able to join us next week too, for another edition of The Blues Come Calling. Until then, we played out with one of Bristol’s best bands, Redhouse, with an old favourite ‘Shake Your Moneymaker’.
