My brother's birthday's coming up, and we usually buy one-another music, but I'm at a bit of a loss what to get him at the mo.
He listens to 95% blues of many kinds, and has several hundred albums and collections - all the big names, and many of the lesser-known, spanning the earliest up to date.
Lately he's been enjoying some of the more modern, slightly more amped-up styles - Elmore James Jr. (note, Junior) is bang on the nail, R. L. Burnside's more recent stuff is enjoyed, while Little Axe is considered a little too polished.
All that said, anything out of the usual is in contention.
Anyone out there able to make any suggestions?
