CJ Great tune. this album has several gems. If you havent already, check out captain beefhearts version of st james infirmary. Favorite track: St james infirmary.
OrbGoblin thumbnail
OrbGoblin First blues album I've ever bought. Usually I listen to electronic music, so I was a bit taken back by how much I enjoyed this. Favorite track: Behind these eyes.
WestOfPecos thumbnail
WestOfPecos Laid back, old fashioned blues with a touch of country, using (I am guessing) harmonica, rubboards, saw, guitar along with a couple more instruments I could not identify (home made bass?). The male soloist has an amazing raspy, gravelly voice, half way between Howlin Wolf and Louis Armstrong. Most of the songs appear to be originals (although not all - e.g. St James Infirmary). A wonderful experience! Why aren't they a lot better known? I am looking forward to their next release. Favorite track: Lost lover blues.

The Burying Ground Vancouver, British Columbia

The Burying Ground has a lively and gritty sound with tight harmony and a driving rhythm section reminiscent of the music of the juke joints and jazz halls of the 1920's and '30s. The band moves effortlessly between toe-tapping dance music, the yearning of country blues and the embellishments and energy of ragtime and jazz.
