Good morning to all you beautiful bluesberries of the blogosphere, I'm back in action. A weekend enjoying some beach and gearing up for the moving hell day of September first has had me off my game a little bit, but rest assured there's goodness to come.
This week's Bluesday comes from the great Mississippi John Hurt, a true legend. "The Ballad of Stagger Lee" is a long and guitar-heavy story, perfect for those midweek blues or a lingering case of weekend bluesballs. Check out the past editions of Bluesday for an emerging playlist of stick-to-your-ribs-and-get-you-through-the-day American music featuring Seasick Steve, Cab Calloway, and Lightning Hopkins.
Keep an eye for a new weekly segment I'll be starting in September tentatively called 'Boston on a Budget,' where I'll spouting off on some of the weekly deals and freebies featured around the hub for those who like to ball out every now and again but don't wanna break the bank. Check back also for Jon's continuing take on the Gonzo-Beckett-Crawford-Punto trade; will it work or are the Sox in for another troubling year under Bobby V?
Oh and we're only 1,110 views away from breaking the10,000 barrier; which is Nice!
