I’ve Got The Blues

As I’ve said a few times on the blog here, thanks to a trip I took down south in October, I’ve really been getting into the blues recently. At the behest of Mister Harkin, I made this little survey of some new records in my collection. The tracklisting is below, and you can download the mix here. I hope you enjoy.
