I love the blues (and can completely understand your rant against the local radio station). This collection looks fantastic. I love the mix of the old and new.

How can you have the "blues" when you are rockin' to this?

Lubbly jubbly! Particularly like the G. Love and Special Sauce Pic (not enough of them around). Understand your rant, although I would prefer your local radio station played 'white guy biker horn happy blues' than the crap boy bands/girl groups and other over-stylised bands that specialise in derivative, manufactured pop and annoying cover versions that completely fills the UK radio waves (and French radio waves are even worse!).

For those who didn't see my little rant I basically complained about the "white guy biker horn driven happy blues... slick shit" played on a local college radio station on weekends. As was pointed out at least we had some blues on the radio and it is nice that there are young blues players making relevent blues music again. I would also point out that we have another college radio station that for over 20 years now has played almost 24/7 "indie" rock. For that I am really thankful.

As usual, a mix of consummate style! There's the other kind of blues like Robert Cray plays, I mean, Cray is good player, but there is neither anything soulful nor mean in his recordings ... almost doesn't count as blues to me. Kinda like the Larry Carlton brand of "jazz" which even he refers to as "happy jazz." Can there be "happy blues?"

Wow, public funds should be used to give you a blues show. Especially like seeing bluesy numbers from James' Ulmer & Brown slipped in here.
