Roadhouse Blues News – New Music Releases from Santana, Gov’t Mule, Joe Louis Walker, and More

This year has been another great one for Roadhouse Blues releases AND they just keep comin’!!!! Here are some that might interest you…….

Out Now

Santana – Blessings and Miracles

It’s album number 26 for the band Santana and the groove nevah felt better! The band gets an assist from Chris Stapleton and Steve Winwood on a album chocked full of other guest appearances.A bluesey cover of Whiter Shade of Pale is worth the price of admission!

The Kentucky Headhunters – That’s a Fact Jack!

Southern influenced blues rock…oh yeah!

Out this week:

Gov’t Mule – Heavy Load Blues

Warren Haynes says this is the first Gov’t Mule to explicitly focus on the blues. Listen to the promo video single Make It Rain and understand why I can’t wait to get my hands on the entire recording.

Joe Louis Walker – Eclectic Electric

He started out years ago hangin’ backstage with Jimi Hendrix and released his first album in the mid eighties. I have been a big fan ever since and even got to trade shots with him one night at Black Eyed Sally’s in Hartford, CT. The album is truly an eclectic mix of blues’d up songs featuring his prowess on guitar and that distinctive voice.

Coming in December

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Barn

When ya just want the windows to rumble to the music…..Crazy Horse will always do!

Due out in early 2022

Keb’ Mo’ – Good To Be

Tinsley Ellis – Devil May Care

Willie & the Bandits (UK) – When the World Stood Still

John Mayall – The Sun is Shining Down

John had recently announced that he would no longer tour but only perform locally in California so I was happy to hear he will put out a new album in late January 2022 featuring Marcus King, Buddy Miller, and Mike Campbell. A music icon and elder statesman of the blues; anything he cares to record I want to listen to.

Eric Gales – Crown

This will be an interesting album. Eric collaborated with Joe Bonamassa on the recording and if the first single I Want My Crown is any indication it will be pretty badass.

Elles Bailey (UK) – Shining In the Half Light

Jesse Roper (Canada) – album not yet titled.
