It’s a return of the annual non-electronic Yuletide mix!
This mix says it all: This is Da Blues. There’s a little bit of everything here but not all the everything because Blues is over a hundred years old and it’s impossible to capture all of it in one mix but I try. You got your Delta Blues, Mississippi Blues, Chicago Blues, Texas Blues, Blues Rock, Southern Blues, 12 Bar Blues, acoustic and electric blues, all done with modern artists so no predictable classics.
The mixing here is competent but not special as Blues is an obnoxious genre to mix (it’s all about the solos). As usual I avoid the hits and try to nail what is right for the mix and what is the essence of the genre.
This one’s for you, dad.
And also Joe Seneca and Ralph Macchio. And John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. And I guess Elizabeth Shue too.
