Ken Rhyne “Dining With Miss Lily”
from Caught You White-Handed (Fat City Records 2001) —Ken doesn't need a high-profile blues career, as he's already a very well respected architect, as well as Native American issues spokesperson and activist.

Danny Gatton “Blues Newburg”
from 88 Elmira St. (Elektra Records 1991) —Gatton wrote this tune, and he's one in a long line of accomplished guitarists from the Washington, D.C. area. Folks like Gatton, Roy Buchanan, Jimmy Thackery come to mind.


Latvian Blues Band “Are You Ready”
from Unreal (self released 2009) —Recorded in Riga, Latvia in 2008, with Duke Robillard producting. You can Robillard's infuence in the band's sound. These very young Latvians have it going on!


Barry Levenson “This Time I'm Gone for Good (feat. Billy Price)”
from The Visit (Rip Cat Records 2015) N  —A brand new album of "influences" from one of the finest blues-based guitarist folks just aren't familiar with. Barry Levenson is one of the REAL GOOD ONES. Always classy, always tasteful.
