Many years ago when the ‘Bit was still a tiny bit, Kahuna and I lived in Florence, Al for a while. Florence is a cool place to live – big blues festival in the summer, great downtown and some of the neatest kid parks I have ever seen. It is also just across the river from Muscle Shoals, Sheffield and Tuscumbia. Together they form what locals refer to as “The Shoals”.
This is also the place where four session players (Barry Beckett, Roger Hawkins, David Hood and Jimmy Johnson) bought a recording studio in 1969 and created the distinctive Muscle Shoals Sound. The documentary Muscle Shoals premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Below is the trailer for the movie.
Autopsy IV from Ninebullets.net put out another awesome radio show Thursday night. I have been trying to find a Dorado track to put in the jukebox so it was nice to hear them in the show. He also had tracks from Drag the River (yay!) and The Heavy Horses as well as a new release from Shooter Jennings. Pop over to Ninebullets and check out the track list, then follow the link to listen to the recording of the show. Bryan shared the news on his Facebook that the Ninebullets Radio Show will be moving to Saturdays 2-4pm in Feb. (This adds an hour more of music to the show!)

I have been trying to write the review for Blurred, by San Francisco singer/songwriter Alex Wise for a few months now but can’t seem to finish it.

I had [...]
So, I was in the mood for some blues and whoosh – blues appeared. Other people get coupons, bills and news updates in the mail while I get blues music. Cool new blues music in the form of the debut release Telegraph Taboo from the Chicago-based band Nick and the Ovorols. This is not a pretty album. The vocals on a few tracks [...]
