Sittin’ in my easy chair, smokin’ a cigar, and ponderin’ blues reviews:
- Rory Block – Hard Luck Child – Stony Plain Recording 2014
- No Cigar – While acoustically brilliant, the album, which covers Skip James, didn’t do much for me.
- Eric Bib – Jericho Road – Stony Plain Recording 2013
- One Fine Cigar – Death Row Blues is a great tune on a solid album.
- Edin Brent – Jigsaw Heart – Yellow Dog Records 2014
- One Fine Cigar and a Sniffer of Brandy – She is “Bonnie Raitt on a piano”. Nuff said!
- John Mooney – Son and Moon – Fatback Records 2014
- One Fine Cigar – Covering Son House tunes, John does some fine acoustic pickin’ playing the delta blues.
- Elvin Bishop – Can’t Even Do Wrong Right – Alligator Records 2014
- One Cigar – The title cut is vintage “Red Dog” blues and nominated for song of the year by the Blues Foundation.
- John Nemeth – Memphis Grease – Blue Corn Music 2014
- One Fine Cigar – Bad Luck is My Name has been nominated for song of the year. Contains several nice soul blues and harp tunes.
- Jarekus Singleton – Refuse to Lose – Alligator Records 2014
- One Fine Cuban Cigar with some friends – It’s the Chicago blues Baby! Great album by an up and coming young artist! High Minded was my favorite.
- The Mannish Boys – Wrapped Up and Ready – Delta Groove Music 2014
- One Fine Cuban Cigar with some friends – Layin’ down the Chicago blues with vigor and finesse. Loved Blues for Michael Bloomfield, a great jammin’ grinding blues tune!
