Episode 1534 by Full-Time Blues Radio on Mixcloud

This week’s show begins with a selection from a brand new compilation of classic music by the legendary Dr. John. It ends with a truly independent release that captures the rawness of great pre-war Blues sounds. In between, you’ll hear a broad spectrum of Blues sounds that include recent selections and brand new arrivals.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Burn It Down” by Sugar Brown. It comes off his new, independently released record Poor Lazarus, which is available everywhere beginning September 4, 2015. Sugar Brown is Dr. Ken Kawashima, a professor in East Asian studies and a scholar of music. He channels his passion for Blues into the music that he plays and records.

We really enjoyed his debut recording, 2014’s Sugar Brown’s Sad Day; and now he returns with a new mix of original compositions and cover tunes. There are versions of songs by RL Burnside, Frankie Lee Sims and Tom Waits. Sugar Brown also composed music to accompany words penned by classic author Lewis Carrol, for two cuts on this disc. The best way to stay up to date on the album’s release, Sugar Brown, and his tour dates, is his official website. You can find it at SugarBrownMusic.com
