The second airing of this great blues-rock collaboration by two artists who, in some folks’ eyes, are an unlikely pairing. And I have to say I was surprised when this first came out. But it works. The chemistry is there, and this is one fine album.
If you’re a blues lover, this is your day. Before, in between, and after we have all that great wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. She is our guiding light here in the Lounge, and we treat her with reverence. Just push the button below for da blues.
