Junior Wells - Hoodoo Man Blues Deluxe

The release I'm most excited about this week is the re-issue of one of the most important Chicago blues albums in history, that being Junior Wells' Hoodoo Man Blues. There have been innumerable great bluesmen in history and Wells might not be the first name on the lips of every fan or historian but there's no discounting just how influential and brilliant Hoodoo was at the time and remains to this day. Any self-respecting blues fan has a copy of this record and Delmark has made it worth our while to update.

Ana Popovic releases her new album Unconditional. We posted video of Ana and Kate Moss performing a song from it in Colorado last week. Blues favorite Candye Kane has recorded a new album with guitarist Laura Chavez, Sister Vagabond that's sure to be a favorite at blues radio in the coming weeks and months.

We've also got the debut record from TheDude, Jeff Bridges. Bridges and his brother Beau have always shown an interest in music. Does anyone remember The Fabulous Baker Boys? I do, but mostly because I wanted to be the piano Michelle Pfeiffer was rolling all over. That's another day on Donahue. Bridges won an Oscar for his role in Crazy Heart and he's now released an album with the guidance of über-producer T Bone Burnett.

We've also got a slew of Deep Purple re-issues. Our own General Jabbo has been faithfu keeping up with these. Check out what's already been reviewed and stay tuned for more coverage as these new editions continue to hit the streets.

Those are a couple of the releases we're looking at. What are you adding to your collection this week?
