SECRET TREASURES IN THE BLUES

A Listmania! list by Avalon Don "Avalon Don" (Huntington Beach, California United States)
The list author says: "Blues when done right is music that has a feeling. Some players out there are strong, but not household names. Others need no introduction. Friends have many times said to me... "I've never heard of this person, but I can't believe they are playing in THIS tiny joint!" Answer: Sometimes there's no justice in the music business....."
