I went to the Sony Employee sale Saturday (father retired from Sony/CBS Records) pick up a lot of stuff.
The most interesting "new to me" artist was Keb Mo, I got three of his CD's and all have been spinning in my player. Check him out if you get a chance. I am no expert on Blues music so I am talking out of my behind here, but I would say he plays a mixture of from traditional blues to new age blues, I made those up myself, so if they are wrong sue me. Anyway good stuff.
Anyone out there listen to this guy? I need more like this.
As a side note, I bought a 4 disk "The Blues - The best of 1920-1996" I do not like the old stuff, mono, bad recordings and such, I am sure this is "the real blues" but it is not for me.
