Personal Jesus (on the Mainline) features Reverend Freakchild on vocals and slide guitar and Hugh Pool on harp and it has no business being as good as it is.
Rev. Freakchild starts us down the path to righteousness (and excellent blues) on this week's edition of the TOB. Also we hear from Kenny Wayne Shepherd, the late Magic Slim and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats.
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.
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.
