As a wise old rockabilly cat once said "There Ain’t No Cure For The Summertime Blues" so why not find a shady spot and just enjoy them. Here at Electro-Fi Records we sure enjoyed being on hand at BILLY BOY ARNOLD’S well deserved induction into the Blues Hall of Fame in Memphis, during the Blues Music Awards May 8th & 9th. Billy Boy’s brand new Electro-Fi CD "BILLY BOY ARNOLD SINGS BIG BILL BROONZY" sure seems to be taking the Blues world by storm. A rave "Spotlight" review by Art Tipaldi in BLUES REVUE, a full page lead review in LIVING BLUES, plus major airplay from our friends in Blues Radio worldwide. Congratulations to Billy Boy, guitarist Eric Noden who also produced, Billy Flynn, Rick Sherry and Beau Sample, as well as Bob Riesman for his stellar liner notes that explain and explore the connection going back nearly 60 years between Billy Boy and his mentor Big Bill. An album of Chicago Blues like this one is a very rare thing indeed in 2012. We here at Electro-Fi are truly proud to bring it to you.
