Please support the people who support us! This week, we're pleased to be sponsored in part by Dick Waterman Photography. More info at: www.dickwaterman.com

Join us as we dig through the archives, to bring you some of our favorite vinyl from the 1960s Blues Revival. We’ll hear a couple from Mississippi Fred McDowell's "I Do Not Play No Rock ‘N’ Roll," plus, rare tracks from “Ramblin’ On My Mind: A Collection of Classic Train and Travel Blues” — a 1965 anthology that never quite made it to the digital age. In addition, we’ll hear a few gems courtesy of Norman Dayron and Paul Oliver. The former, from a wonderful compilation on Takoma Records called "Rare Blues," and the latter from “The Story of the Blues,” a double LP compiled in 1969 that was meant to accompany Oliver's critically acclaimed book of the same name. We’ve also thrown in a couple of super-rare cuts from Doctor Ross — coming off the very first LP on the Blue Horizon label, and we’ll close things off with a few favorites from “Down South Summing Meeting,” featuring a one-time only gathering of Big Joe Williams, Lightnin' Hopkins, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. It’s some of our favorite vinyl from the Blues Revival, on this episode of Blues Unlimited.

Pictured: Issued in 1965, "Ramblin' On My Mind" never quite made it to the digital age. It's one of our favorites from the 1960s Blues Revival.
