I do a blues show on WJSC 90.7 Johnson State College, Johnson Vermont, a blues harpist friend of mine told me about the RDs several weeks ago, after wearing that CD out I got 13…the last cut, 16 live, so mean to me, may be the most intense song I have ever heard in my 50 years of listening to the Blues. Your site is outstanding…..Thx. Les
