These tracks stem from 2013 and 2014 (one is even from 2003, but comes from a more recent sampler), but I assembled them from CD’s that I reviewed in the course of last year and at the very start of 2015. You can find more information about the bands and the records on the net (telling you in case you lived on Mars this past decade) The bands have in common that they’re manned (and womaned) with experienced people and the songs tend to be smoothly going though we (of course!!!) avoided bad blues (at least we tried) You’ll find a couple of surprises here (# 12 and 13, but, ssst, you don’t have that from us) Well, it got to be did… Enjoy, bro and sis!

Some Belgian stuff here (# 7 / 11) Most bands are well known and all of them can be found on the net, for further information. Wink Burcham is the odd one out here, but we think you’ll like him… Now for the rest of this collection! (AL; 31 07 15)
