Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite

The Duke Robillard Band
For over four decades, Duke Robillard has been one of the most respected blues and roots music guitarists working today. This release shows endless creativity in bringing new ideas to blues forms. Fellow New England guitar hero Monster Mike Welch is an important contributor providing Duke with a daredevil foil on all tracks.
Duke has worked with Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Roomful Of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds and dozens of blues legends. He has been nominated for two Grammy Awards.
JJ Grey & Mofro
This River is named for the St. John's River, a centering point for JJ's childhood near Jacksonville, Florida.
This River flows from freewheeling celebrations ('Florabama') to dark inner journeys ('Somebody Else'), from late night, beer-soaked testimonials ('Your Lady, She's Shady') to heartfelt ballads of the almost-forgotten ('The Ballad Of Larry Webb'), and ends with the title track and a singularly devastating vocal performance. His smoldering vocals, mesmerizing songs and dynamic grooves combine blues, R&B and rock into something both instantly danceable and lyrically intense.
Available on both CD and 180g vinyl (free download card included with vinyl)
