This latest edition of our BluesPowR Radio Hour is sure to help wake you up on these post-Super Bowl/Fat Tuesday mornings, with strong nods to both Lead Belly – including the opening cover of the blues/folk great’s “Good Morning Blues” by UK guitarist Laurence Jones, which starts with some words from Lead Belly himself (so be sure to have the volume turned up from the get-go) and a Lead Belly-inspired song from Eric Bibb also closing the set – and Muddy Waters – including tracks from former Waters band members Pinetop Perkins, Jimmy Rogers, and Bob Margolin, as well as a cover of one of Muddy’s most popular songs in “Baby Please Don’t Go” by Danish blues-rockers Thorbjorn Risager & The Black Tornado.
Also included is music from John Mayall as well as a double shot from Colin Linden‘s latest album, and more, so check it out today!
