postheadericon BluesNews from the World of BluesBlues: July 8-9, 2017

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 8-9, 2017 There’s a new old school blues series coming out July 21th…..  Fat Possum Records will release Worried Life Blues.  It a series of ten albums and it will feature some out of print, as they call it, recordings.  It will be available on Amazon music in advance of the full release.  On the CD’s and Vinyl, artists recordings will include R.L. Burnside, that’s R.L. in the background you hearing now, Reverend Gary Davis, Honeyboy Edwards, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, Furry Lewis, Little Brother Montgomery, Houston Stackhouse, Bukka White, and Reverend Robert Wilkins.  That’s 10 artists I just named, and a full album will be devoted to each of these artists.  Most of the recordings are from 1963 until 1972.  I love old school stuff like this…This is what the true Blues is all about. That release date is July 21st and the series is called Worried Life Blues….If you want to see the songs that’s on each full album, we have a link to the article on Mr. Charles Mitchell stopped by the Golden Communications Studios a couple of weeks ago, and we talked with him a little last weekend about the Jus Blues Music Awards.   We didn’t have time for all of the interview, but something he brought up that got me to thinking.  That’s how he came up with this whole idea.  Charles was in management and he managed at one time artists like Trudy Lynn and Lucky Peterson…. (Charles Mitchell Audio)(Listen On Line) And the style of blues is still evolving today, but the Jus Blues Foundation is letting all of us know where, how and who started this trend of the Blues, and honoring the people that made it happen and are still making it happen today.  The Jus Blues Music Awards will be held August 2-4 in Tunica Mississippi, with the culmination taking place in Memphis on August  5th……We have a link to their web site at if you need more information… WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT:
