Kid Ramos hasn't had an album out since Greasy Kid Stuff clear back in 2001. He had a cancer scare in 2012 also he had to raise a singer. Son, Johnny is now 18 and old enough to contribute to the family business with his strong tenor voice, reminiscent of a young Magic Sam.
James Harman gets us going, Sue Foley teams up with Charlie Sexton, and we also hear from Charlie's former band mate from The Arc Angels Doyle Bramhall II. We also get wild with Webb Wilder and freaky with Rev. Freakchild.
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.
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.
