Another fantastic selection of new arrivals anchors this terrific playlist. Seven of the 12 songs come from albums that have never been featured on the program. From Soul to Rock, and even a little Latin fare, there’s a broad spectrum of Blues styles featured in this week’s program. Be sure to watch for that two-fer comparing Crystal Shawanda’s cover to the Beat Daddys original for “I’ll Always Love You.”

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Walking With the Wolf” by the Kentucky Headhunters. It comes off their new release, Meet Me In Bluesland, an album that the band recorded with Johnnie Johnson. The men all gathered in the studio to collaborate in 2003, but didn’t desire to release the tracks at first. Johnson, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame piano master and legendary sideman for Chuck Berry, passed away in 2005. The Headhunters allowed these recordings to age like fine Kentucky bourbon, and brought the finished product to Alligator Records for release.
