Why even have a Library of Congress if they aren’t preserving the crucial work of guys like T-Bone Walker? Fortunately, they are! This week we celebrate the recently-announced inclusion of Stormy Monday in the select list of preserved recordings by the LoC. Also a tribute to recently deceased Miriam Makeba and a listen to three tracks from the just issued for the first time 1966 last album by Little Willie John!
Another typical Echo Chamber mix of roots, dub, and eclectic fun. Brand new dub from Volfoniq; Eating Betty’s excellent new Every Spoil a Dub; the latest roots classic Jah Is Real from Burning Spear; the fine new Nostradamus album from Winston McAnuff; a new Lucky Dube restrospective (on Ryko); and the cool
roots vibe of See-I’s Mean Joe Green.
