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

Well a big bluesy welcome to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling . . . and there are plenty of treats in store here, including the new EP release by Janiva Magness, ‘Blue Again’ which provided a very fine opening number, ‘Tired Of Walking’. There were plenty of other new releases that popped up in our playlist. One album that’s been getting lots of plays around here lately is the new album, ‘Bone Rattler’, by The Bridget Kelly Band, stuffed full with 22 excellent tracks and if you’ve not heard the new album by The Tanya Piché Blues Band before, we remedied that this week with her newly released album ‘Wolf Woman Blues’. If you haven’t found it yet, you might try looking for the latest album by Guy Berlanger ‘Traces & Scars’ and we gave a taster from it this week’s playlist.

There were a couple of happy returns this week . . . one for fans of Billy Boy Arnold with the re-release of his 1979 album with UK band, The Groundhogs. Then, there was guitarist Mike Bloomfield, whose 1973 recording with his long term collaborator Mark Naftalin is available again on the Shady Grove label and it includes our choice this week . . . ‘I Will Always Love You’.

Terry Robb is no stranger to our playlists here and he was back again with a wonderful ragtime piece called ‘Soggy Foot Rag’. Then, there was a distinct change of style to some urban blues from Little Milton, New Orleans’ own The Mark Stone Band and blues-rock band Left Lane Cruiser who hail from Fort Wayne, Indiana. But, there was a big surprise this week when a long-time colleague revealed that bluesman Kenny Neal was a member of his family . . . so with a big cheer from here to Jackie and David, we played Kenny Neal’s ‘Blues Mobile’.

Well, all good things have to come to an end, but before the sands of time finally ran out, we got to play out with the very impressive guitar work from Justin Johnson and his take on ‘Baby Please Don’t Go’. Then it was over and we waved everyone a cheery farewell. So, until the next time The Blues Come Calling . . . remember . . . have fun!
