At the moment I am really digging the following:
The Aggrolites : Reggae Hits L.A.
King Leo and the Growling Dogs, a Dunedin based NZ band doing great Blues
Mungos Hi Fi featuring Marina P

Nice set up here BluesFest, well done.

Welcome to the new board Kai.

Swing Cats[1999].Lee Rocker,Slim Jim Phantom with Danny B Harvey on Guitar covering some standards.

King Leo & The Growling Dogs are certainly a welcome addition to the scene in the South.
I went to see them at The Appleby Blues Bar in Ingill[The resident bandleader/music tutor at the bar being an Aussie by the name of Marty Astone]where they were well received.Having that American accent out front certainly assists with the presentation of the material,not to mention the presence of a double bass.

I read that Paul Ubana Jones is looking to migrate to Aussie in an effort to make a crust.
He could always become a gardener like Midge Marsden.

Lucinda Williams - Little Honey

Pretty much what you'd expect from a lucinda album
except for the last song "It's a long way to the Top" which Lucinda does an admirable job with but the guitarist absolutely butchers with some lame airy fairy work. I guess it just goes to show you shoudn't mess with the claccics.

Buddy Whittington. This is John Mayall's guitarist solo (at last) and really moves out.

Suzy Bogguss "Swing"{2003 Compadro Records}

Nice jazz/swing covers album,produced by Ray Benson with Asleep At The Wheel providing the backing.
Every time I put this on,my wife objects to the track "Burning the toast"[for you] which does sound a bit sexist.

Mavis Staples - Live, Hope at the Hideout. A great reminder of her Saturday show at fest this year - it wasn't easy for her, but it was a show of real deep soul.

Duke Robillard "Guitar Groove:A:Rama"[StonyPlain Records 2006]
Great CD cover with all the guitars.

Such a wide range of guitar expertise is showcased,swamp,country,gospel,jazz,funk, acoustic,tango,blues.

Many might consider the 17 minute "Blues A Rama" in which he pays homage to Blues idols,to be the highlight.I would choose "Sewed Up" and "Cookin",but then there are gems such as the swing of "Sunday Mornin" the Bolero/Funk version of "Danny Boy"[A tune I would generally hide under the table from],and the Bluesy version of Bob Dylan's "Down Along The Cove."It's all a matter of personal preference as he chooses a range of instruments from his collection according to the style.

Historic NZ DJ "Dr Rock" aka Barry Jenkin once said that the popularity of music is inversely proportional to its quality.

If U2 and Duke Robillard were playing in competing venues in the same town on the same night,99 out of 100 people would attend the U2 gig.

I'd be the odd one out.

CC Adcock - Lafayette Marquis. This record is an absolute killer and is evidence as to why this original artist should be at the top of bluesfest's wishlist.
