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

Well, like birthdays, there were many happy returns on our playlist this week, with some very welcome revisiting of recent new releases, including JJ Thames with another track from her very fine new album ‘Raw Sugar’, Annika Chambers with something else from her new album ‘Wild & Free’ and The Bruce Katz Band, who got some favourable feedback on their last appearance here, so I thought you might appreciate a little more from the band with their New Orleans flavoured ‘Night Of Joy’. Now, that wasn’t all either, because Aynsley Lister popped up again, along with Joe Bonamassa, both with new albums that are getting a lot of traction before they’re released.

We also enjoyed something from Chicago’s Liz Mandeville & The Blue Points, who treatedsaturday-night-fish-fry-dirty-road-blues us to  a track with a real bluesy feel, from their latest album ‘The Stars Motel’. But, we kicked off this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling with a band called Saturday Night Fish Fry and ‘Poor Old Me’ from their latest album called ‘Dirty Road Blues’ . . . .

There was some scratchy blues from Oscar Woods and Juke Boy Bonner, along with an energetic performance by Daddy Long Legs and The Cash Box Kings with ‘Black Toppin’, reminding us of the Bo Diddley style story telling. But, all too soon, we ran out of time, so especially for those who like some excellent blues slide guitar, we closed this week’s show this week with the great slideman Roy Rogers with a longtime favourite of his. . . ‘Get Back In Line’.

So, until the next time The Blues Come Calling . . . thanks for listening and don’t forget . . . have fun!
