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

.
Well, with the significant events of this week, you might just welcome an opportunity to relax and enjoy a whole hour of some of the best blues around . . . and, for just that purpose, we pulled together a cracking playlist, here, on The Blues Come Calling.

We included Australian guitarist and singer, Anni Piper, with a track from her latest album titled ‘More Guitars Than Friends’ and she was joined by another lay of the blues, Rebecca Downes, with a preview track from her forthcoming BeLive. Another new release came from Terry Robb with an album called ‘Cool On The Bloom’. Terry’s been on our playlists before in a trio format, but this time we featured a fine solo piece that showed off his excellent guitar-work.

There was a special treat this week. Something that’s not been released yet and may not be released at all. This was a live performance from Bill Wyman’s 80th birthday bash at the O2. Bill was on stage with some other big names, including Steve Van Zant and Bob Geldof and, along with the rest of the band, they did a version of ‘Little Red Rooster’. Now, you may not hear this anywhere else, so enjoy it here! But, before that, we kicked off the show with Buddy Guy & Kim Wilson with ‘Too Late’ . . .

There was a little scratchy blues from Memphis Minnie and a track she recorded in Chicago for Vocalion records back in June, 1937, followed by some more new releases from Long Island band, The Dog House Blues Band , Philadelphia’s David Bromberg Band and the excellent John Doe Trio. Eddie Martin lena-the-slide-brothers-the-roadmade a welcome return this week with something from his latest album ‘Black White & Blue’ and we filled the last precious minutes of our hour with Lena & The Slide Brothers with a bouncing little blues from their album ‘The Road’.

There was just enough time to thanks everyone for joining us for our hour of the blues and to invite their return, same time, same place, next week, when I’ll be back with another armful of great blues to share. So, until the next time The Blues Come Calling . . . remember . . . have fun!
