There's a lot of great new music as usual but we'll also hear some great songs we don't get to play often enough from a few years ago like Treasa Levasseur, The Record Company and Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band.
Katy Guillen and the Girls, Treasa Levasseur, Danielle Nicole and Bettye Lavette all are on the show this time. Over on the boy's side of the program, Peter Karp sings about trains and Sam Butler covers the Bee Gees, of all things.
Singer Bettye LaVette doesn't write songs - there are plenty of good songs already. She takes other people's songs and gives them a completely new place and time. She does a whole album of Dylan tunes and you can hear the title cut (minus one bad word) also new music from Johnny Tucker, pedal steel player, A.J. Ghent and an absolute gem from Big Voice Odom teamed up with Earl Hooker on T-Bone Walker's Stormy Monday.
We're full up on heavy-set, bearded soul singers with Victor Wainright, Josh Hoyer and and the brand new Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats fresh out of shrink wrap, plus a classic from Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry and Mud Morganfield.
