This week, a show from the end of March in 2008--John chose long album cuts for this one, with cuts from the "Super Super Blues Band" (Muddy Waters/Howlin' Wolf & Bo Diddley), Willie Dixon's "I Am The Blues", and John Lee Hooker's "Endless Boogie" (a cut featuring a young Steve Miller in 1970). In "Road Trip," we hear from the Full Moon Blues Band at the New Key Largo here in Springfield; a live 1973 cut of Alvin Lee's classic "I'm Goin' Home" by Ten Years After; and Buddy Guy joined by G.E.Smith and the SNL Band. Hour Two features, in addition to Don Shipps, Kirk Fletcher, Champion Jack Dupree, Albert King in his only appearance with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dan Smith & City Streets, Canned Heat, and Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials.
