You might think that with only four new releases this week, it’s slim pickings, but these particular new releases just might keep you listening all week. Guitar Heroes features the legends James Burton, Albert Lee, Amos Garrett, and David Wilcox all on stage together and ripping it up. I know, you’re upset that Joe Bonamassa isn’t included. Get over it. As it is, you get a thrill-a-minute ride through Americana’s Blues and Rock & Roll history. The Word returns this week as well. The Word is made up of Robert Randolph, John Medeski, and North Mississippi Allstars. It’s not necessarily Blues but neither is Otis Clay. It’s a big tent, folks. I’m trying to embrace it! The Word is a terrific high-energy band and if they tour you should definitely check them out.
Delta Moon releases a new disc this week with a great lead-off single covering Tom Waits’ tune “LowDown” which also happens to be the album title. These guys have a rich and thick sound guaranteed to please. Last but definitely not least we have the new album from Mr. Sipp The Mississippi Blues Child. If you have SiriusXM and tune into B.B. King’s Bluesville then you’ve probably heard the title track which is a damned fine composition. They’ve been playing Delta Moon tracks too, so if you’ve heard them and liked them, support the artists and pick up these great new discs.
