Perry’s Album Surprise of the Month

Let me be the fifth person to echo this: there are so many highly anticipated new albums coming out now or since early February.  Richard Thompson, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell’s first project together since the ‘70’s , Billy Bragg’s first studio album in five years, Josh Ritter, Steve Earle.  It’s like a musical version of colorful flowers blooming together in bursts.  Yes, I am still enthusiastic about these projects.

Did you know….

“Did you know that Jimmy Reed’s wife, Mama Reed, can be heard singing on several Jimmy Reed classics including, “Baby, What You Want Me to Do”, “Bright Lights, Big City”, and “Big Boss Man”? Mama wasn’t credited as a background singer, but she was there to help Jimmy remember the lyrics to his own songs.”

Thanks for listening!

Thanks for supporting WUMB and Dark Was the Night
