What’s New in Issue 125

April 27, 2012 in Editorial

Who does Ian Siegal say should feature on commemorative British Blues Post Office stamps?

Why does BBC Radio 4’s Count Arthur Strong say he’s ready to take over from Paul Jones?

How did Southern songbird Lisa Mills first meet the blues in Alabama?

What made Sugar Pie Desanto say her 1964 tour of the UK was ‘horrible’?

Why does Ed Stephenson reckon his Gretsch White Falcon is falling to pieces?

All these questions are answered in Issue 125!

And there’s more:

Tom Rodwell tells us about the life of a peripatetic bluesman, Hokie Joint are in awe of a backstage toilet, J. J. Grey features in ‘Gig-of-the-Month , Tommy Allen continues to help you build your must-have album collection’ and Les Back picks the Fender Strat as a ‘guitar that made the blues’.

There are reviews of festivals in Scarborough and at Alvaston Hall, of gigs from Yorkshire to Dorset and of blues CDs & DVDs from around the world.

There’s even a review of a 2012 Orange Book Award short-listed novel!
