The Listening Club - 6th November 2016

Greetings folks,

Happy post-Guy Fawkes day. Grey and grim again outside, and a sense of foreboding across the planet as the American election prepares to drag its sorry carcass over the finish line, for better or for worse. Really looking forward to seeing this year folded up and packed away before it causes any more chaos, to be honest, but in the meantime let's join forces and get ready to howl at the supermoon....

All things considered, not surprising that last week @JonnyDaPigg chose to give us all a dose of the blues with his pick of Sonny Terry's "Wizard Of The Harmonica", which saw everyone assessing a few personal listening thresholds to much amusement. Many thanks to Jonny for the pick, and for sailing the frisbaton across to @Nessiest, who is here with this week's intro...

"This is from people I'd never heard of. They remind me of a lot of other artists while still managing to sound like themselves. 

I like the sharpness of some of the lyrics, the vying for balance between the artists without disrupting the effect of the overall album.

Steeped in a definite era, drinking recommendations for this one are maybe a dirty martini or an old-fashioned, accompanied by any food cut into cubes and stuck on toothpicks."
