A Roadhouse Rewind fills the bill for Roadhouse 502. I’ll be back next week with a new edition.

B ig Joe Maher & Jeff Sarli, Roomful of Blues, Delbert McClinton, Tinsley Ellis, and Little Arthur Duncan step out with brand new tracks. It’s truly another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 242nd Roadhouse.

It’s another great hour in The Roadhouse featuring Kirby Sewell Band, Linsey Alexander, Jimmy Dawkins, Marcia Ball, and John Hiatt. Of course, they just lay the foundation for other great blues tracks, many of which, as you might guess, are brand new. It was another week of strong new blues releases. But, whether they’re new or old doesn’t really make a difference in one way – they all contribute to another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard: the 499th Roadhouse.
