With this coming Monday being the deadline for those in the U.S. to file their annual federal income taxes, we thought some of you might enjoy another talk-free episode of our BluesPowR Radio Hour to help put you over the finish line (or just sit back and relax to if you’ve already filed). Watermelon Slim does pay homage to the tax man on one track, but that’s as, well, taxing as it gets here, with a pair of songs each from John Fusco & the X-Road Riders, the Delta Wires, and the recent Rolling Stones-curated Confessin’ the Blues compilation, plus other music from Colin Linden & Luther Dickinson, Nick Schnebelen, and Albert Castiglia & Mike Zito.
So don’t put this one off; give it a listen today!
