Latest CD purchases

Went a little crazy yesterday and bought a few Blues CDs (and a few
non-blues CDs too).
Among the Blues titles... "Mem Shannon's 2nd Blues Album", Rounder's "Blues
Piano Orgy", Pinetop Perkins - "Born In The Delta" (an "Enhanced" CD), and
Robert Nighthawk "Live On Maxwell Street".
I don't have time for a real review right now but I'd recommend them all.
I'll be playing them a whole lot. Mem Shannon is a really great writer. I
had heard several cuts from Mem's new album that I liked but "Old Men",
which I had never heard, just blew me away. The Blues is quite alive, and
it's still growing up. Mem, if he keeps at it, will be a force in it's
future. I'm just as enthusiastic about the other three albums, but Mem's
lyrics really knocked me out.
