So what have I been lending my ears to over the last few weeks then? Well, amongst other things there have been:
Malcolm Holcombe – The RCA Sessions (This is seriously good. Think laid back Seeger Sessions. Think polished up Picnic Sessions. Think Tom Waits doing Heart of Saturday Night, country-style!)
Thunder – Wonder Days (Only discovered by accident that they had a new album out. Just a couple of listens so far, but Luke Morley still has a handy way with a hard rock riff.)
Samantha Fish – Runaway and Black Wind Howlin’ (As a precursor to getting my mitts on her imminent new album Wild Heart. I'll be reviewing that very soon, but meantime here's a taste of her doing 'I Put A Spell On You' on YouTube.)
Ghost Town Blues Band – Hard Road To Hoe (Really good Memphis band, as mentioned in Adventures in the South – Memphis, Part 2.)
After 50 posts, and 2,500 page views, I only realised recently that my settings for comments were too restricted for anyone to leave a message on the blog. That’s been fixed now folks, so feel free to share your thoughts on some of the music you’ve been getting an earful of lately!
