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

Out of a dozen songs featured on this week’s show, eight of them come off albums never before featured on the show! It’s a great selection of songs that unintentionally leans a little guitar-centric; but you’ll also hear a little Soul Blues, some incredible piano work on the closer, and a killer harmonica accompaniment on the opening track.
