My good blues lovin' friend, Kevin Johnson, of Proud Papa Promotions & Publicity, used to work for Delmark Records in Chicago. Kevin now has his own independent radio promotions and press/publicity/PR company, concentrating on real deal blues! When he sent me a copy of 'Howlin' At Greaseland' (West Tone Records) I knew I'd be in for a good hit of solid blues. And I was right!

Howlin' At Greaseland is tribute to the legend Howlin' Wolf (Chester Arthur Burnett June 10, 1910 – January 10, 1976). Wolf is blues, there's no doubt about it. Several of his songs, including Smokestack Lightnin', Killing Floor and Spoonful, have become blues and blues rock standards the world over. On this album of 14 tracks, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer, Kid Anderson, brings together some of the most accomplished musicians this side of Wolf's life, to recreate and cover some of Wolf's most outstanding songs. It's not that Howlin' At Greaseland is trying to outdo or better Wolf's genius, rather it's paying homage to a true blues legend that I'm sure all the artists involved love and admire.

Produced by Andersen at Greaseland Studios, Howlin' At Greaseland features many great artists such as Rick Estrin, Johnny Cat, Tail Dragger, Rockin’ Johnny Burgin, Jim Pugh, Henry Gray (played piano for Wolf), Terry Hanck, Ali Kumar and many more.

There's some good banter and stories in between songs thanks to Anderson for keeping the tapes rollin. I just think the whole album is brilliant. It captures today's premier West Coast and Chicago players very well. I highly recommend you pick yourself up a copy soon! I spin a few songs I like from Howlin' At Greaseland plus some other massive tracks that also pay tribute to the legend, Howlin' Wolf. Ahhhh whooooo, whooooo (*in the accent of Howlin' Wolf). Enjoy!

Well I'm enjoying the Ali Barter album. Saw her live supporting Stevie Nicks and the Pretenders and thought she was very good.

Well, so it is! That's mighty observant of you Greybeard. Perhaps we ought to celebrate (nearer the time). In the meantime, theres so many new bands to get acquainted with that I've not yet heard of at next year's Bluesfest. Excited much to say the least.

It's a great album - has many references towards weed/herb in many of the vocal deliveries, but musically it hit's the spot. Easily identifiable Cuban flavors and plenty of reggae heavy bass lines.
I see the band is touring https://www.havanameetskingston.com/live/
March 8 – The Tivoli, Brisbane http://bit.ly/HMK18bris
March 11 – WOMADelaide http://womadelaide.com.au/tickets
March 14 – Enmore Theatre, Sydney http://bit.ly/HMK18sydn
March 15 – Forum Theatre, Melbourne http://bit.ly/HMK18melb
March 17 – WOMAD NZ http://womad.co.nz/tickets

I wonder if they will pull up on the Bluesfest stage too!

picked up a ticket for the havana meets kingston show at the tivoli in brisbane the day they went on sale & it is one of the shows i am most looking forward to this year. i'm not sure if bluesfest will try for them as they already have a couple of latin names already but would be nice if they showed up.

other great releases i have been checking out lately are the new ones from neil young & chris stapleton who would both make a good addition to the 2018 lineup.
