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 they came calling loud and clear. So, there was plenty of good stuff to choose from, including a preview of Dani Wilde’s new album, ‘Live at Brighton Road’, The Tanya Piche Blues Band’s ‘Wolf Woman Blues’. Micki Free with ‘Tattoo Burn’ and Jim Gustin & Truth Jones’ ‘Memphis’. There were some new faces too, like Dominic Schoemaker, who hails from Luzern and was causing a stir on the Swiss Blues scene even before his debut album ‘Downtown Stories’.

We pulled out a number from Canadian bluesman Anthony Gomes and those who know his electric blues rock style may have been surprised at our choice of a very nice acoustic track titled ‘Hamhock Booty’ from his 2014 album ‘Rebel Blues’. For the fans of scratchy blues, we featured Alden Bunn (better as Tarheel Slim) with his 1951 Apollo 45 called ‘Baby I’m Going To Throw You Out’. But, before all that, we kicked off the show with our sad tribute to the late Gregg Allman . . . . his music and the memories live on . . .

Now, if you’ve seen the TV show ‘The American Epic Sessions’, you’ll have
heard  some contemporary musicians playing their versions of American blues classics. One of those bands featured is The Alabama Shakes, which was a good excuse to hear their version of Memphis Minnie’s ‘Killer Diller’. But, the Shakes didn’t have it all their way, because Professor Louis & The Cromatix were also tapping into the ‘seasoned’ gems with their take on Marie Adams’ ‘I’m Gonna Play The Honky Tonks’.

There were also some very welcome visits to the playlist from The Steve Kozak Band, some steamy and sultry stuff from Maryland’s own Patty Reese and some excellent stuff there from Boogie Patrol. Their number, ‘Shaker Down Below’, had all the hallmarks of Paul Butterfield in his prime. So, if that sounds good to you, go check out their latest album ‘Man On Fire’.

As ever, all too soon, the end of the show crept up on us and before we were ready, we were having to say our farewells. So, with a big thanks for listening to this week’s show, let’s look forward to meeting again the next time The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . have fun!
