"Talking Guitar delivers exactly what its title and its creator's reputation promise: lucid translations of prewar records and expert insight into what made them so good. After hearing Paul Rishell's blues, you'll have a hard time denying the power of such bare, organic, and emotive sound."
- Katie Lambert, LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE
In 1960, when I was 10 years old, I returned to the U.S. after living in England. A lot had changed since I had left the country 3 years earlier. My old team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, were no more. We lived in New York, and occasionally I'd go to Yankee Stadium and watch the Yankees play. I never liked the Yankees. It never seemed that they needed me as a fan; they had plenty of fans. The worst team in the league in 1960 was the Baltimore Orioles. I chose them as my team because I felt they needed my support.
We're driving to Florida where on Saturday, January 23, we will embark on our first Blues Cruise. Other performers on the boat include Taj Mahal, Keb' Mo', Johnny Winter, Guy Davis, Ruthie Foster, Joe Louis Walker, Duke Robillard, Jason Ricci and about 20 more acts and 1800 blues fans. It's a long trip so we thought we'd share some of the highlights of the 1500-mile drive from Boston to Fort Lauderdale as they happen (well, almost):
