This week's playlist:
• Bell Carol Blue by Jimmie Bratcher, from Man! It's Christmas (2006), available from Jimmie's online store. Jimmie's other albums are available from his site, as well as the iTMS and Amazon.com. For more information, visit JimmieBratcher.com and his MySpace page.
• Just Stockings On by [munk]. This track was made available at the Podsafe Music Network during the 2005 holiday season. Unfortunately, the track is no longer available in this form at the PMN (there's now another, more salacious version by someone else [?]), but I prefer this version. For more information about [munk] and his music, visit Waxboy Records.
Excellent online resources for more information about the blues: The Blues Foundation and the Delta Blues Museum; and be sure to download and listen to the DBM's top-notch (and free) podcast, the Uncensored History of the Blues.
(Music on Murphy's Saloon #51 courtesy of the artists and the Podsafe Music Network, where I obtained many of these tracks)
