Today we make our annual trek down to the Memphis area to preview some of the nominees for the 2008 Blues Music Awards (better known as the Handys). We also celebrate the birthdays of Robert Johnson and Stevie Wonder. And, for probably the first time ever in Rockhouse history, we feature back-to-back sets containing – gasp – covers by the Beatles.
We begin our run-up to Syttende Mai…..Norwegian Constitution Day….May 17th. Musik from the Telemarkfestival 1990-2000 and Landskappleik ’94 among other selections. Also a sample of new Finnish classical music from Einojuhani Rautavaara.
A bunch of new dub coming our way from Europe this week including: Mayd Hubb’s The Blue Train [France], Dub Pon Top from Finn the Giant [Sweden], and the new Sardinia Bass Legalize Visions of My Land [Sardinia]. All crucial releases… On top of this we did a nice Dub Flash Records:http://www.dubflash.com/dfr/index.php set to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
