The new 2016 releases are starting to trickle into the mailbox here at the workshop. There are three 2016 albums featured in this playlist, along with three 2015 albums that have never been featured on the show. In addition, Johnny Full-Time takes a few moments to honor the late Otis Clay, and we’ll hear a pair of recent releases that feature the late Soul giant.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Freedom.” The song is performed by Italian guitarist and singer Davide Pannozzo, and it appears on his EP 2015. The six-song set features a few songs off Davide’s previous full-length CD, A Portrait Of Jimi Hendrix. The EP also includes versions of “Feels Like Rain” (famously recorded by Buddy Guy) and Elmore James’ “It Hurts Me Too.”

Davide Pannozzo started playing classical guitar at the age of six, and he has incorporated that immense skill into his rock influenced Blues music, along with his love for guitarists like Hendrix, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour and others. Make sure to scroll down below this week’s playlist to watch Davide and his band perform another Hendrix cover, “If Six Was Nine.” You can also find complete information about Pannozzo, his music, and more at his official website,

Think about Robert Johnson recording some of the greatest Blues songs in history unaccompanied. Now, think about Son House and his amazing acapella version of “John the Revelator.” Some of the greatest examples of Blues music have been by individuals performing alone, whether with simply their voice, or as they play an instrument. That tradition continues today, with a new crop of standout solo performances.

This week on Full-Time Blues Radio, we’ll spend the hour enjoying solo Blues from a variety of artists. There’s solo instrumentals, individuals playing and singing, and even one man bands!

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Canada.” The track comes off Eddie Martin’s upcoming album Blues Toof ME By The Hand Vol. 1: Acoustic Sessions. The album is a perfect fit for this edition of Full-Time Blues Radio, because it is a compilation of Eddie Martin’s best solo acoustic material from throughout his career. This album comes out April 7, 2014 on digital platforms, and a limited number of autographed hard copies are available directly through Eddie Martin’s official website.
