Geetarz Comments:
Culled from the same two dates as the performances used for the unreleased "Nothing But the Blues", this is instead sourced from the MediaAmerica radio show. Excellent sound quality, and features a stunning version of "Driftin'".

Lineage: Silvers > CD-R (trade) > EAC v. 0.99 Prebeta 5 (Secure, Offset Correct) > FLAC

Artwork, checksums, info file, and EAC logs included. Enjoy!  ~Geetarz, September 2010

  1. This looks a treat. Always best to head to the basement for some low-down blues, eh?

  5. Thx for sharing. BTW - does this label still exist ? Do they specialize in blues only? The sound is as sharp as a razor.

  6. No they closed down at the end of April 1997. New EU rules ended the protection gap loophole.
    You can find alisting of their titles and further information here:

    Bear in mind that some of these titles have been upgraded since the 90's.
