New Release by Rory Block: Blues Walkin' Like A Man

When ever I hear a story about someone meeting one of my blues heros I become envious. And the story of how in 1965 at 15 years-old Rory Block met Son House and it changed her life. Leading her to become an internationaly recognized five time Blues Music Award winning guitar player, who has released more than two-dozen or so blues albums. There is a lot here to envy.

Her newest release Blues Walkin' Like A Man is a tribute to Son House. The album features Block's inspired renditions of 13 House classics, including "Death Letter," "Preachin' Blues," and "Grinnin' In Your Face." Block's friend, former Lovin' Spoonful frontman John Sebastian, adds harmonica to three cuts on Blues Walkin' Like A Man.
