Album Notes
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.

Texas Blues Radio Volume 5

Review from the Dallas Morning News
Blues is king in Dallas-Fort Worth. Or at the very least it’s part of the royal family. Just ask the folks at KNON-FM (89.3). The longtime, respected station has just released Texas Blues Radio Volume 5, the latest installment in its series of CDs showcasing the Metroplex’s rich blues musicianship.

The 15-track disc sports passionate cuts from DFW blues men and women such as the Chris Watson Band, Ruff Kutt Blues Band, Andrea Dawson, Tutu Jones, and Sir Loin and the Ass-Kicking Machine, to name a few. All are original songs donated by the artists, some of which haven’t been released anywhere until now. With this new edition, all five Texas Blues Radio CDs have released tracks from 72 different Dallas-Fort Worth blues artists. Pretty impressive, huh?

Texas Blues Radio Volume 5 is limited to 1000 copies. That’s it. Once they are sold-out, the disc won’t be reissued. In fact, the first four volumes are all sold-out and no longer available. Plus, this time the station has provided a limited number of MP3 downloads available at CDBaby.com. Search for “Texas Blues Radio” or “KNON” to buy the disc as a digital download.

Don’t forget to listen to KNON’s blues show Monday-Friday from 6-8 p.m. For more information about KNON and specifically Texas Blues Radio Volume 5, go to KNON.org.
