Here’s another talk-free edition of our BluesPowR Radio Hour to help keep your new year rolling, featuring a trio of classic tracks off Earwig Music’s Cadillac Baby’s Bea & Baby Records: The Definitive Collection from Little Mack Simmons, Sunnyland Slim, and Andrew “Blueblood” McMahon, plus a pair of tracks from both Mike Zito and friends (in this case, Chuck Berry’s grandson Charlie Berry III on one and guitarist Joe Bonamassa on the second) off Zito’s tribute album to the late rock n’ roll pioneer Berry and harmonica ace Bob Corritore joined by a few friends of his own (vocalists Oscar Wilson on “Bitter Seed” and Sugaray Rayford on “Trying to Make a Living”, a tune once covered by Koko Taylor but the original of which from Bobby Saxton can also be heard on the Bea & Baby Records collection, with guitarist Junior Watson also accompanying Corritore and Rayford on this latest take).
If that’s not enough for you, we’ve also got music from Danny Bryant, Dom Martin, Jill West & Blues Attack and the aptly named Sensational Barnes Brothers. It’s going to be tough to pass this one up!
