Linda MILES – Home Cookin’ 2008


Linda has hit hard the styles from BB King to Feebie Snow to Billy Holiday to Mudd Bone and all the old standards of Blues. Great variety in range. Gritty, sweet, funny, pleading, and soulful. All the right reasons I love listening to this genre. Thanks Linda for breaking out of your shyness and “throwin’ down, babee!”. Please let me know when you are appearing in my area, especially House of Blues in L.A. or any little juke joint (would love to support you). The guitar was slammin’ and I would have really enjoyed a little more pronounced organ solo. Perhaps on your next CD?
