This week's playlist:
• Green Thing by The Hitman Blues Band from Blooztown (2000), available at their online store, CD Baby and the iTMS. For more information about the band, visit HitmanBluesBand.com or their MySpace page.
• Wound Up Tight by Hal Newman and The Mystics Of Time, from an album called America's Party Band. Contact Hal's son Cody, whose power pop trio has their own Web site at Codaphonic.com and a MySpace page, for more information.
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. Be sure to read Today's Chicago Blues by Karen Hanson, an excellent guide to all things blues in present-day Chicago.
