This week’s edition of The Roadhouse is a Roadhouse Rewind from 10 years ago this week. I’ll return next week with a new show.

A Roadhouse perfect for chair-dancing is also the ideal accompaniment to your cardio routine. This upbeat edition features great cuts from Maurice John Vaughn, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Roxanne Potvin, Slick Ballinger, and R.L. Watson. A two-and-a-half-year labor of love rolls on with another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 129th Roadhouse Podcast.

The Roadhouse 648

This edition of The Roadhouse is laid out in big chunks. I’ve got a live set, a set that’s primarily West Coast blues, and a set from a pretty seminal time in the blues – though it’s not one that’s discussed a lot. Nick Schnebelen, Chris Cain, Rick Estrin & The Nightcats, Sonny Boy Williamson II, and George Thorogood help to make up the hour. If you like diversity in the blues, or you’re new to the blues and really not sure of their scope, this is an hour you’ll like and one I think you’ll remember. It’s wildly varied and, of course, it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

I’ve got five artist debuts in the hour ahead – a little less than half the tracks. And, I’ve got some that we haven’t heard from in awhile. Altered Five Blues Band, Scott Ellison, Sam Frazier, Jr., Scottie Miller Band, and Joshua Jacobson fill out the hour, along with a lineup that should keep your toes tapping. It’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 647th Roadhouse.

If I was to draw a road map of the hour, it would contain strong, evocative voices, a contrast between darkness and light, and a set featuring an instrument that’s been a bit overlooked in modern blues. I could probably tell you more, but I ‘ll leave just a little mystery. There’s no mystery, however, about the fact that the hour ahead is yet another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 646th Roadhouse.
