This week, the Home for New & Independent Blues Music breaks new ground and features some truly amazing content. You’ll have to approach portions of this episode with an open mind, because in the second half of the show we’ll hear music from the crossroads of Blues and Hip-Hop, with a new collaboration between harmonica giant Sugar Blue, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rapper DMC, and producer Sonix the Mad Scientist.
Before we get to that, we explore the thread of music in different songs with the same title, and hear from a 59-year-old harp ace who has just released his debut album!
The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “I’m the Reason (She Walks That Way)” by Stacy Mitchhart. It comes off his new album Live My Life, which is available everywhere September 9, 2014 on Dr. Sam Records. Mitchhart’s 12th album features a dozen songs that he says capture his life at its present.
Below this week’s playlist, you’ll find the music video for the album’s title track, “Live My Life.” You can also find tour dates, past releases, and more information on Stacy Mitchhart’s official website, StacyMitchhart.com
