CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Blue Corn Music artist Ruthie Foster New Release - Let It Burn - Review


What a breath of fresh air!! First I have to admit that I am not primarily attracted to solo female vocal oriented recordings (with a few exceptions)but this recording is dynamite! I have listened to it about 4 times and I really like it. There are a number of familiar songs on the recording and if I were to see the titles on the cover and try to make an analysis of whether I would like it I would never give it a second look. Ruthie covers traditional spirituals, The Black Keys, Los Lobos, David Crosby, Johnny Cash, John Martyn and Pete Seeger. Well, looks can be deceiving. There is not only very strong vocals but really hot guitar riffs and very soulful grooves. This recording is absolutely terrific from beginning to end and I highly recommended it! Really!!
