The Rev. Shawn Amos blesses us on this edition of the TOB, with a selection from his new album, The Rev. Shawn Amos Breaks it Down. We also get to know new music from Janiva Magness, who does a great duet with Delbert McClinton, and Victor Wainright plays one with his new band.

Chris Smither hasn't released an album of original music in six years, he's evidently been saving up because with "The Blame's on Me" the axiom "All Killer - No Filler" applies. Bernard Allison, whom we also  haven't heard from for awhile returns with a new album on Ruf recordings. Plus Rev. Shawn Amos, Tinsley Ellis and John Lee Hooker this time on the 10 O'Clock Blues.

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 done with the best of 2017 and we're looking forward to what the new year has to offer with new music from Bettye LaVette and Shaun Murphey who has sung backup for many rock and blues legends.

Our last show of 2017 and the repeat will be our first broadcast of 2018. It's not half-bad either. The show after the Christmas Show but before the year-end countdown show is just a normal edition of the TOB and there ain't nothin' wrong with that.

The 25 best blues albums have been curated and made available for your listening pleasure (as long as you only want to listen to one song from each album and you really only want to listen to the top 12 or so). Every year Stumpy Steve puts all the albums into a complex matrix of radio airplay from across the country according to Living Blues Magazine and then he cross checks all that with his own idea of what deserves the top honors. Now we have this. Please listen!
