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!

New: Muddy Waters Blues Band New: Muddy Waters Blues Band
1977 was a comeback year for Muddy Waters, as he returned to his original Chicago sound on a new album and then hit the road with a fantastic group that included old companions like Pinetop Perkins and Luther Johnson. One of the stops along the way was Nice, France, where Waters was in strong vocal form and the band was blazing, pushing Waters to heights reminiscent of his heyday. Enjoy a hot jolt of the blues and download this new Muddy Waters Blues Band set today.
