Curators Notes:
Must be my birthday week to be able to include the very best blues song of all time (Muddy Waters “Hoochie Coochie Man” – see the list) on a new releases post. Even better, he backed by the band that was my window to the blues – The Rolling Stones. Yes, the album was originally released back in 2012 as part of a DVD/CD set. This past week, the standalone CD was released by Eagle Rock, thus on this new releases list. Enjoy. AND… a unique pairing of Elton John and Jack White in a even more unique genre. They kick out a great blues-y “2 Fingers of Whiskey” as part of The American Epic series. Five of the Fifteen fresh releases over the past two weeks. Two great finds whose albums received multiple plays this week were Karen Lovely and Luis Oliart. Highly recommend both. We wrap it up a live George Thorogood classic on a live release from earlier this year.
