Blues submissions requested! 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!

Bman's Year In Review 2011-12

Bman's favorite releases of the year (Almost done!)

Like most of you I listen to music all day. But I listen to a lot of new stuff constantly and often don't get a huge window of time to just kick back and pick my new favorites. I've decided to make time. So I am now selecting the best and playing them in my car as I drive to select those that are the best of the best. Those which are most interesting and I'll still want in a few years.  This is the first batch. If you haven't given them a listen... check them out!

By the way...this isn't the Grammys...this is one man's opinion based on what I hear... no outside influence ... nobody to answer to...not based on most popular booty dance... not based on airplay stats... not based on record sales...  just great music!

Yes...I know that some of these release came out over a year ago... but I just came up with the idea! Starting in January 2013, I'll have a new list but this list, when complete, will cover all CD's and DVD's sent to me for review since I started this project a little over a year ago.
