I enjoyed that one. Well played and recorded!

Part 2 of

Blockquote Discovering the Music of Blues Legend Robert Johnson
has just been released; CARMEN GOMES INC. - STONES IN MY PASSWAY and I can report that it is fantastic. So well played and so well recorded.

I have the CD as well as the 24/352 download both are highly recommended.

@Per This looks interesting. Title is a little unnerving tho! :wink:

It’s a fantastic album and it’s getting top reviews;

‘Carmen sings the blues straight from the heart, profoundly, with authenticity and heartfelt sincerity, eschewing any unnecessary embellishments.
This is so well recorded that turning up the volume knob significantly never makes the music too loud, only more intense.’ JazzFlits’

I know, I can’t wait to get a long listening session in with them. I still have a few more weeks to wait though, they just got to the sanding station.
