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.

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,

ftbtv_logoI grew up in the original MTV generation, and I can remember when music videos were the rule more than the exception. In today’s world of consumer, fast food, reality television…music videos have somewhat become a lost artform. Just like there are still practitioners of the Blues, however, there are still talented, creative folks out there producing music videos.

Enjoy these videos by Jonny Lang, North Mississippi All-Stars, Charlie Musselwhite and the Teedeschi Trucks Band.
