Issue 238 – October 2021

October 2, 2021 in Editorial, Uncategorized

It’s October so there must be another Joe Bonamassa studio album coming our way, following swiftly on the heels of Joanne Shaw Taylor’s The Blues Album. Simon Green talks to them both. London boys, Jimmy Regal And The Royals and the Consummate Rogues wax lyrical and that’s not forgetting Teresa James and Brigitte DeMeyer.

Moz Copestake took on the task of penning an account of the life and times of the Rev. Gary Davis, whilst I wandered back down Memory Lane with Maddy Prior for some wonderful anecdotes. You can read both Moz and Maddy’s accounts in this issue.
What may become a regular feature, British blues guitarist Laurence Jones dons his A+R cap for us and goes in search of new talent.
It’s  a welcome step forward to be editing live reviews again after they've been so long absent from the magazine’s pages. Gigs are finally getting going again, so in this issue we’re running a selection of the reviews that have been tucked away in our Live Editor’s methodical filing system. Our new Live Editor should I say, as Sub-Editor Austin Powell steps into the shoes vacated by Moray Stuart back in November last year. Arthur Ely continues his splendid work as our CD Reviews Editor and, as you’ll have seen over the past seven or eight issues, there have been plenty of new albums for our reviewers to get their teeth into.
Go Well.
