SONG OF THE DAY Willie Dixon – Jungle Swing
Willie Dixon’s 1988 Hidden Charms album won a Grammy award for its 9 tracks of blues goodness and with songs such as Jungle Swing featuring on it, is it any wonder? Eight years prior to this in 1980 Dixon was inducted … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Dollar Band – High Desert Walk

SONG OF THE DAY Michael Clark – Something To Be Won

SONG OF THE DAY The Buttertones – Shut Out
There are very few bands out there who can release something new and before I’ve even heard it I could bank my money on liking, but The Buttertones are one of them; it’s almost a given in fact! Their most recent … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Big In Japan – Nothing Special
Emerging from Liverpool in the late 1970’s, Big In Japan were an interesting punk collective known as a supergroup, but a supergroup with a difference; that being its members only became ‘super’ after they left and went into other bands! … Continue reading
