The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Snaggletooth Mule” by Jimmy Burns. It comes off his new release, It Ain’t Right, which is available now from Delmark Records. It Ain’t Right marks Jimmy’s return to Delmark Records, with the two previously coming together to release four albums previously. The most recent was the concert recording, Live At B.L.U.E.S., released in 2007.

There are 15 songs on It Ain’t Right, including the title cut, a song written by Little Walter. There are also covers of songs by The 5 Royales, Percy Mayfield, Jimmy Reed and Ben E. King. Billy Flynn wrote two new original songs for the disc. Jimmy Burns provides vocals, guitar and harmonica, as always; and he easily slides from Blues to Soul and ends the album with the traditional Gospel of “Wade in the Water.” You can find out more about Jimmy, his band and schedule, and much more, on his official website JimmyBurnsBand.com

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Make It Right,” by Drew Nelson. It appears on his 2014 release The Other Side. Drew Nelson formed a career as a touring musician in Canada, before walking away from it all for roughly eight years. The itch to return to music was spurred on by Steve Marriner, who encouraged Nelson to begin making music once again. Drew and Steve formed a bond when a young Steve Marriner would be welcomed on stage to jam with Drew Nelson’s band. Steve Marriner produced the new album, plays harmonica on some of the tracks, and also helped flesh out some of the songwriting. It’s truly a return to form for Drew Nelson, and the finished product is an album of 11 songs that is gaining buzz across Canada and beyond.

The Other Side is a truly independent release, and it is available now. You can find more information about this album, about Drew Nelson, and so much more, by simply visiting his official website – DrewNelson.ca
