Week beginning: Sunday 24th January 2021
 
We all love the 'Blues' the latest music, back into the 70's and 80's and back to where it all began. In a nutshell, the very best in Blues .. We're on a mission to ensure that the music from back in the 1920's/30's, and the wonderful artists of the earliest days, are never forgotten, nor are they allowed to disappear into obscurity. Join us as we go 'Backtracking to the Delta' and beyond, up to the present day, making all the stops along the way. .. with a side order of Soul .... Hopefully, W C Handy, would have approved .... Enjoy the very best of the Blues ..

The Legends - Track of the week
Ida Cox (born Ida M. Prather, February 26, 1888 or 1896 – November 10, 1967was an American singer and vaudeville performer, best known for her blues performances and recordings. She was billed as "The Uncrowned Queen of the Blues. Her commanding stage presence and expressive delivery earned Cox star billing, and by the early 1920s she was regarded as one of the finest solo acts.
Ida Cox - Any womans blues
Sawmill Gravy Blues - Featuring
Elmore James(January 27, 1918 – May 24, 1963) was an American blues guitarist, singer, songwriter and bandleader. He was known as 'King of the Slide Guitar' and was noted for his use of loud amplification and his stirring voice. He began making music at the age of 12, using a simple one-string instrument (diddley bow, or jitterbug) strung on a shack wall. As a teen he performed as under the names Cleanhead and Joe Willie James.
Featured special production
Dire Straits, Telegraph Road .... Never fails to make me cry, so emotive, so beautiful. Inspired by a bus trip taken by Mark Knopfler, the lyrics narrate a tale of changing land development over a span of many decades along The Telegraph Road. In the latter verses, Mark focuses on one man's personal struggle with unemployment after the city built around the telegraph road has become uninhabited and barren just as it began.
