Volume 5, Number 4

Blues Across AmericaCannonball Records (yes, they're the folks who put a little miniature cannonball inside their CD jewel cases) continue their excellent Blues Across America series, with the latest covering the Los Angeles blues scene. Artists on this compilation include Finis Tasby, Johnny Dyer, Joe Houston and Kirk "Eli" Fletcher. This hot CD from the left coast is this month's Pick Hit.

Fedora Records continues its amazing string of great releases with new ones from St. Louis legend Tommy Bankhead, harp player Arthur Williams, and West Coast guitarist Fillmore Slim. This trio of CDs are reviewed in our Surprise of the month feature.

Two very important blues singers, Ray Charles and Jimmy Reed, are both the subject of new "best of" collections on Rhino Records. Check 'em out in this month's Flashback section.

This month's What's New section features reviews of new CDs from Tommy Castro, Rick Holmstrom, Lynn August, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, Toni Lynn Washington, and more.
