Jut a few observations . . . great to see “2 Man Wrecking Crew” win, just a great album; congratulations to Mike and the Yellow Dog guys for Eden Brent and her soon to be reviewed here album, “Mississippi Number One” . . . and odd that Willie ‘Big Eyes’ Smith won best drummer, when his latest album showcases his harmonica playing? Oh, and who doesn’t love Janiva Magness . . . and well done to Billy Gibson for his award.

Some serious debate on Blues-L today. The general view is that too many easy choices favour the better known names. Still there are some new names in there. M for Mississippi, 2 Man Wrecking Crew etc.

Ken’s four word summary. Could have been worse.
