'Blue Room,' Ana & Milton Popovic (ArtisteXclusive Records, HHHH 1/2)
This May 19 release comes from blues powerhouse daughter Ana Popovic and her father/ guitarist Milton (Milutin), playing rhythm, lead, acoustic and electric guitars depending on song/singer. The album was produced by Jim Gaines (Albert Collins, George Thorogood and others); and it is a musical document of Ana's warm, continuing relationship with her dad, who inspired her career path by jamming with her back in Serbia. They're aided by keyboardist Rick Steff, drummer Steve Potts and a few others.
I especially enjoy the spirited John Lennon cover "I'm Losing You," the nifty "Evening Shadows" (Van Morrison), the blazing "Somebody" (Brannen/Tempchin), "We Used to Know," an old Jethro Tull tune by Ian Anderson and Jimmy Reed's "Baby What's Wrong."
Different listeners may prefer other tracks, but this recording is a blues-guitar-lover's dream.

Although Casey Kasem passed in 2014, this may be connected to his Radio show is spirit. I always enjoyed his upbeat style even though I wasn't that concerned about how songs were judged. To me the BEST TULL SONGS are those that don't get played on radio or win awards...

steelmonkey: The countdown from today (10) to Tull liftoff on July 9, will bring memories of being herded into the school cafeteria to watch space rocket launches on TV in the 60s. Amazing that they did that with arrays of computers that had less power than our phones
