'Voodoo Woman' is the first blues album by Crystal Shawanda to be released in the United States. If you're a fan of those hard-hitting female blues stars of the past, you'll be a fan of hers too. In a word, this album is exceptional.
All in all, 'Sometimes the Blues Got Me' is a substantial album. No one can ever say Bob Koester doesn't know his stuff when it comes to blues and jazz. Picking Breezy Rodio for the Delmark label was another genius move.
For those like us who love original, intense, unvarnished blues, Little Freddie King's 'Fried Rice & Chicken' should be on your shelf. Better yet, in your player.
'Something Smells Funky ‘Round Here' has a street date of July 13th, and if it isn't immediately in your collection, there may be something wrong with your soul.
