13 songs, eight albums never before featured, seven of which are brand new arrivals – this episode defines our name as the home for new & independent Blues music! This week’s show features several truly independent releases, a new version of a song first recorded in 1935, and the first new record bearing the VeeJay Records label since 1965.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Dream Catchers” by Eric Bibb, with Ruthie Foster and Harrison Kennedy. The song appears on Eric Bibb’s new album, Blues People, which is available now from Stony Plain Records. The CD features 15 songs, with a long list of guests, including Taj Mahal and the Blind Boys of Alabama.

Eric Bibb explains in the album’s liner notes that Blues People not only examines the kinship between all manner of people who play the great American music; but moreover, it traces the journey of the African-American experience. Several songs touch on the battle for civil rights in America, and “Dream Catchers” is one of them: a fantastic song providing a snapshot of the fight for equality.
