Listen: Episode 1614

There are a broad variety of Blues styles represented, this week. The new arrivals make up over half of the playlist. There is a Vinyl Report segment detailing Joe Bonamassa’s new LP, and there is a set of inspirational songs toward the end of the broadcast to encourage you.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Walk A Mile In My Blues” by Curtis Salgado. This is one of 11 deeply personal songs written by Curtis for his brand new album, The Beautiful Lowdown.

Curtis had his hands in every aspect of this album’s creation, and I believe that because he poured so much of himself into the project, it will go down as arguably his very best record. There are 12 total songs, including those 11 original compositions, and the closing track: a cover of Johnny “Guitar” Watson’s “Hook Me Up.” Scroll below the playlist to watch the official music video for another one of these great new songs. The Beautiful Lowdown went on sale today through all major digital retailers, and in record stores around the world.
