Best Blues Albums of 2014
Gary Burnett did a good job setting up the Best Blues Albums of 2013 discussion so let's get 2014 going.
The first one that comes to mind is THE DEVIL YOU KNOW by Tommy Castro and the Painkillers. A lot of great songs, many of which are in the straight blues format instead of his usual r & b and soul type offerings. Of particular note are "Two Steps Forward" (And One Step Back)" and "I'm Tired". I have played these songs over and over on the iPod and they are two of the best guitar-driven blues rock songs of the last few years.
Talking about great guitar work, try Joe Louis Walker's HORNET'S NEST. The former preacher not only has the usual outstanding axe work, but his vocals shine. A sense of humor on "Stick A Fork In Me" and "Not In Kansas Anymore".
