Steve Howell's new CD, My Mind gets to Ramblin', topping the Blues Roots charts

This weeks' Roots Blues Charts at Roots Music Report show
Steve Howell's "My Mind Gets to Ramblin'" at number 7, says musicologist Bruce Flett. Howell's competition includes the top names in blues, including Taj Mahal, B B King, Elvin Bishop, Buddy Guy, Freddie King and Stevie Ray Vaughan (re-issues).

Howell's new CD is his second release on Out of the Past Music and focuses on his mastery of the under-appreciated American Music Genre of Acoustic Country Blues, says Flett.

Steve is now booking tour dates for 2009, notes Flett. House Concerts, coffeehouses, pubs, 'listening rooms' and festivals are his specialty. Solo acoustic guitar with vocals or with his 3 piece band, his home of Marshall, Texas, can indeed be proud of Howell.

"Ramblin'" was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Sandbox Studios in Shreveport. Among the musicians that played on the recording: Musicians Hall of Fame member Joe Osborn on bass guitar and nationally known guitarist/singer/songwriter Buddy Flett.

I have Steve's new CD and its great. This cat knows Acoustic Country Blues about as well as anyone. Re-recording 'Prodigal Son" and giving credit to the guy that wrote it (the Stones never did) is one testimony to keeping this American art form alive. As 'academic' as this album is, it is even more a soothing listen in your car or on your computer.
