New CD Releases Feb 21, 2012 - Santana, Eddie C Campbell, Lurrie Bell, Chieftans, Chieftans UK,

I'm having some trouble finding many releases that look particularly interesting to me this week. It's a shorter list overall than we've seen of late and there just doesn't seem to be much likely to get me in the buying mood, which is fine because I've spent my allowance about 4x over. I needed a week to sit out (or in this case spend maybe just a wee bit less).

Eddie C Campbell featuring Lurrie Bell Spider Eating PreacherA pair of Chicago blues legends have teamed up for a new record from our friends at Delmark Records and I am so having one of these. The great, great Eddie C. Campbell has teamed up with National Treasure Lurrie Bell, who happens to be Eddie's godson forSpider Eating Preacher. This is going to be Chicago blues goodness that will nourish the soul and I can't wait to hear it. Eddie C's last record Tear This World Up was a terrific set and was a Blues Music Award Album Of The Year nominee. Must. Have. This!

Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana's 2011 appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival gets issued on Blu-ray. The set list is a great mix of Santana classics and some covers, which ought to make for some great viewing. Also adding to the excitement is a cameo from the guitar power couple that is Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi.

The Chieftains are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a star-studded new album called Voice Of Ages. Among those who particpate on the collection are Bon Iver, the Civil Wars, Imelda May, The Decemberists, The Low Anthem, Pistol Annies, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Punch Brothers. The set was co-produced by T Bone Burnett.

Those are the two releases I've taken note of for this week. What about you? Is there something I've missed?
