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, as ever, we’ve got something old, something new, but it’s all definitely something blues. . . . and we kicked off there with ‘Rip This Joint’ from the newly released Rolling Stones album, recorded live in Texas in 1972, and the soundtrack to the film ‘Ladies & Gentlemen’.
.
Happily, this month has seen plenty of new blues releases, including the first live album in 12 years by legendary slide guitarist Sonny Landreth. Aptly titled, ‘Recorded Live in Lafayette’ it has over 90 minutes of acoustic and electric numbers. We also had a new release from Italy’s T-Roosters, with their third album ‘Another Blues To Shout’. Then, there was the second album from Norway’s Joakim Tinderholt with a great version of Ike Turner’s ‘Trouble Up The Road’. Micki Free was back too, with another track from his new album ‘Tattoo Burn’.
.Stones - Ladies & Gentlemen
We had a little female blues fest with new tracks from new albums by Lisbon’s Orlanda Guilande, Carolyn Wonderland, Susan Cattaneo and Robbin Kapsalis (thefemale vocalist with Washington DC band, Vintage #18). But, one of the big treats this week was a preview of the forthcoming new album by Walter Trout, which shows he’s back and firing on all cylinders. The album’s titled ‘We’re All In This Together’, featuring plenty of top name guests, including his son Jon on our choice ‘Do You Still See Me At All’.

Jasmine records got an honorable mention this week for two great compilations. The Cash Box Kingsfirst was their latest collection of 26 Excello tracks by harp player, Lazy Lester. . . who’s still touring at the age of 82. The second compilation, called ‘You’re Gonna Miss Me’ and featuring Guitar Slim with all his singles released between 1951 to 1958.

For lovers of classic boogie woogie piano, there was a treat from Meade Lux Lewis with something he recorded back in 1940, called ‘Six Wheel Chaser’. But, we closed the show with something minty fresh from the new Cash Box Kings’ new album, ‘Royal Mint’, their first for Alligator records and an Amos Milburn favourite . . . ‘House Party’. Then it was all over . . . . just time to collect up the CDs and records and say our farewells, ever hopeful that there was plenty there to entice folks back again the next time The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . remember . . . have fun!
