This led to me digging out said album and giving it a listen and what an absolute stonker it is too.
40 tracks (Highway to Hell being the 40th) from artists from the Bloodshot stable and friends.
To me Americana music from the mid 90s to the mid 00's was the biggest musical revolution since punk with Bloodshot being one of the key players. I totally immersed myself in it to the extent that I probably missed much music being produced in the UK at that time some of which I am now discovering for the first time thanks to my blogging chums.
Long suffering readers of CCM will recall my Bloodshot Tuesday series when I featured 20 of my favourite Bloodshot acts. I have therefore gone for two acts who did not feature in this series with the first song paying tribute to Bloodshot's home town of Chicago.
The Yahoos - Oh! Chicago
Rico Bell &the Snakehandlers - Money to Burn
