Rory Gallagher

Listening to a blues radio show this last weekend I heard an amazing guitarist I hadn't heard before. The DJ said it was recorded live in Belfast in the early 1970's - at a time when Belfast was a very unsafe place. I went to the library catalog and didn't find any CDs I could borrow, but I was delighted to discover a significant number of titles from our streaming service (hoopla).

Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone by Lucinda Williams

Oh the sweet, comforting songs of a strong voice and a soulful electric guitar. Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone is her first album on her own label, Highway 20 Records. She's had some famous fights with labels and it sure is great to hear her stretch out her complete control. This is a long album - two cds, just shy of two hours of music, and it feels great the entire time. As the nights get long this will be a good friend.

The Breeze by Eric Clapton & Friends

Eric Clapton channels J.J. Cale in this newly released tribute to Cale's rootsy, bluesy music. You might know the Clapton hits "Cocaine" and "After Midnight" but not that they were written by Cale. This album showcases Cale's relaxed, laid-back style, perfect listening while sitting on your back deck sipping your favorite summer beverage. Listen now to The Breeze or go right to the source and check out some of J.J.

Say It by Evan Goodrow Band

This Boston-based trio opened for B.B.King at his recent concert in Beverly and impressed me with its full, rocking blues sound. Evan Goodrow leads the band on guitar and vocals, with Phil Antoniades on drums and John Cooke just smokin' on a Hammond organ. Check Our Catalog

B.B. King

"King of the Blues" B.B. King is legendary for a good reason--he's still awesome after 50+ years in the blues business. Try a "best of" CD to get a flavor for his electric guitar work, gritty voice, and passionate interpretations of traditional blues songs.
