Mighty Sam McClain Stands The Test Of Love

Here is some soul blues you can use, from American legend Mighty Sam McClain. Born in 1943, this Louisiana gentleman started performing at the age of 5 in his mother’s gospel church, and he went pro at 13. You do the math. “Can You Stand The Test Of Love,” is a single off Sam’s new album, “One Drop Is Plenty,” a collaboration with Norwegian blues guitarist Knut Reiersrud, and it’s just brilliant in every way. Enjoy.

Chris Barron’s new Spin from an old Doctor

Chris Barron – “Brokenhearted Serenade”

An inspired take on an ancient theme. “So funny I forgot to cry” – one of those lines I’d say was clich√© except I’ve never heard it before! This song is full of gems like that, with a sound that reminds in a good ways of The Byrds, Paul Kelly, Michael Penn (remember his hit?) and Crowded House. A yummy power pop ballad from the singer-songwriter of Spin Doctors fame.
