October/November 2004
Volume 9, Number 8

Mavis StaplesGospel / soul / blues singer Mavis Staples returns with her first studio effort in more than a decade. Our reviewer thinks her new CD on Alligator was worth the wait, so it comes in as this issue's Pick Hit.

Southern California songstress Janiva Magness goes for a rootsier sound on her latest, Bury Him At The Crossroads. It's this month's for our Surprise pick.

The late U.P. Wilson produced some of the more innovative blues guitar recordings of the past 10 years; we take a look back at his JSP catalog in this month's Flashback.

This month's What's New section features new releases from Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Michael Powers, Martha Reeves, Maria Muldaur, Morning 40 Federation, Dan Treanor and Frankie Lee, Tinsley Ellis, JW-Jones Blues Band, and more. There's also a review of a reissue of recordings from Lucille Bogan, considered to be among the most ribald music of any genre ever recorded.
