In the second Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 of 2014, I continue my look back at some of the excellent CDs which arrived here at Digital Blues Towers in 2013 and give you another taste of some of the wonderful music that rocked my boat last year.

In a 25 track feast I have tracks from Northsyde, Tom Gee Band, Jesse Dee, Sugaray Rayford, the Mannish Boys, Fran McGillivray Band, Danny Kyle, Kyle & Moore, Hans Theessink, Big Daddy Wilson, Bottleneck John, Marshall Lawrence, Cyril Neville, Trampled Under Foot, Southern Hospitality, Mockingbird Hill featuring Malaya, Jo Harman, Layla Zoe, King King, Aynsley Lister, The Hoax, Marcus Bonfanti and Nick Cohen.

With venues starting to reopen after their festive break, in the gig guide there are tracks from The Proof and Egypt

Just what the doctor ordered to banish the New Year blues!!!
