15 tracks of pure Texas Blues to support community radio, KNON 89.3 FM in Dallas! KNON has been broadcasting great blues radio in Dallas/Fort Worth since 1983. Like most non-profits, we are always trying to find new ways to make money to pay our bills. Once again our wonderful blues community has come forward to support KNON. On this CD download, you will find 15 tracks of ALL ORIGINAL homegrown Texas blues. Most are from self-released CDs, a few tracks have never been released before, anywhere!
Check out the sound clips and the first thing you will notice is variety! There are a wide variety of blues styles represented on this CD, from rocking electric to solo acoustic. There's plenty of great guitar, harmonica, original lyrics, and even some instrumentals. There's Chicago-style blues, soul blues, acoustic blues, a little jazzy blues, and some that defies description. Every track is an original tune by the artist. You WILL hear music by artists you have never heard of before. Who knows? You might find a new favorite blues artist, right here on this compilation. We hope you do!
All of these tracks have been donated by the artists to benefit KNON. All proceeds benefit community radio. Your purchase does not just give you some great music to listen to, it also benefits a worthy cause and a radio station that has been playing, supporting, and loving the blues since 1983. Sorry, Texas Blues Radio volumes 1-4 are sold out and will never be re-pressed. Supplies (and downloads) of Volume 5 are LIMITED.
Thanks to all the wonderful DFW musicians for supporting KNON and thanks to YOU for purchasing a download of this wonderful CD!
Also, thanks to Forever Young Records in Grand Prairie for their generous support of this project.
