Colin Linden - Southern JumboAn ardent student of the blues (as a boy, he befriended Howlin’ Wolf and visited Tampa Red at his sickbed—much the same way Bob Dylan did Woody Guthrie), Toronto’s Linden is now an accomplished bluesman in his own right. This fine album, partly recorded in Memphis with Otis Redding’s horn section, features crackling r&b numbers like “I Give Up.” And the rootsy “Which Way Does the M&O Run” recalls the time he joined Blind John Davis for a New Year’s Eve performance—when Linden was just 17.
