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. But, he's a great harp player and singer who has the talent to have had a solid blues music career.
Helge Tallqvist & Groovy Eyes “Hawaiian Eye”
from Plays George "Harmonica" Smith (Q-Records 2005) —Blues from Finland! Helge Tallqvist made a blues pligrimige back in the day to America in order to meet his idol - George "Harmonica" Smith. He did, and they became great friends. This CD is a tribute to George.
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.
Sam & Dave “I Thank You”
from The Best of Sam & Dave (Atlantic 1987) —My personal THANK YOU sent out to all those who were so incredibly generous during the recently completed Fall Drive. Humbled, overjoyed, beyond belief...these adjectives only begin to describe how I (and the other DJs) feel about you!
Rev. Lonnie Farris “Walk To Thee”
from Slide Guitar Gospel (1944-1964) The Complete Recordings Of Rev. Utah Smith and Rev. Lonnie Farris In Chronological Order (Document Records 1993) —Rev. Farris and The Gospel Flames, recorded in Los Angeles in 1962.

Rum Drum Ramblers “Tradin' Dollars For Dimes” (Big Muddy Records 2009) L —It's always a pleasure to spin music from Mat, Joey and Ryan - otherwise collectively known as Rum Drum Ramblers. They've held onto their "punk" spirit as their music has changed and evolved over the years, always maintaining their passion.
