Coming up to round out September, we go on a New Orleans roll with Joe Barry, Barbara Lynn, and Randy Newman. To start out October (already?) we’ve got Kansas Joe McCoy, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Barbecue Bob, and the transcendent Sammi Smith. . . .
Stay tuned.

  1. Sometimes I'm really in the mood for that "Island" beat! I tried to play it last night, but couldn't get the divshare player to respond - was it just me? Seems o.k. now, though.

    Is it from a comp or an LP?

    1. Thanks, this one comes back from time to time to get inside my head and drive me crazy. It was once on The Story of Jamaican Music but I think that one's long out of print.
