Got a mind to travel . . .

Posted: October 9, 2016 in Hear This . . . . !


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

Well a big bluesy welcome to another edition of The Blues Come Calling and we arrived with the usual armful of great blues. This week it including some welcome returns from Nikki James, Maria Hanninen and Fiona Boyes, along with some ‘seasoned’ blues from Delta Bluesman, Freddie Spruell, Eddie Boyd and Eddie Taylor. There were plenty of other treats like Val Starr & The Blues Rocket with their latest album, ‘Woman On A Mission’ and for those who like a little slide guitar, there was New Orleans slide guitarist and singer, Luke Winslow-King.

King King were back previewing their new Live album and there was a little Southern flavour from Johnny Neel, Tommy Lepson & Dave Chappell, who happen to blend together very nicely on their album ‘East Coast Sound’, but we got it all off to a swinging start with Coco Montoya with ‘I Got A Mind To Travel’
