Burnside Album Details

Mike Whellans, Almost 42nd Street

Mike Whellans’ second release on Temple Records successfully captures some of the live energy of the one man blues band from the Scottish Borders. Recorded with minimal overdubs and studio trickery, Mike effectively performs live in the studio and is joined on 4 of the numbers by the barrelhouse piano of Graham Scott. Features tracks from the likes of John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Slim Harpo, Hudson Whittaker (Tampa Red), Keb Mo, Woody Guthrie, J.B. Hutto, Willie McTell plus 5 Whellans’ originals. A blues stunner from start to finish. MAVERICK
