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

Well, the weather in the Grand Duchy has been great this week and so have the new blues releases that have appeared here over the past days. These included the excellent forthcoming release by Aynsley Lister, ‘Eyes Wide Open’, and a very nice Malaco album, ‘One Of A Kind’, featuring Grady Champion and some well known blues names guesting along with him. Then there was an early preview of the new album by Mississippi’s own Lisa Mills, ‘Mama’s Juke Book’, from which we took ‘Never Been to Spain’.

Well, there always seems too much good stuff to fit into our hour of the blues, but somehow we manage it and this week was no exception. But, before our time was up, we found time for the latest album by Kenny Neal, ‘Blood Line’. Sadly, this week we heard from Debbie Davies that Kenny’s family have been badly affected by the Louisiana floods, so we spared a kind thought for them as we played out with Kenny and ‘Blues Mobile’. So, until the next time The Blues Come Calling . . . remember . . . . have fun!
