I Always Turn The Blues On

Val Starr & The Blues Rocket

In cart Not available Out of stock

I Always Turn The Blues On is the band's most versatile and creative blues album yet. From traditional blues shuffles, to bold blues ballads, the songs on this CD tell stories of love and loss, ending bad relationships and enjoying the good ones. Whether Blues is a blues cry for people to get along and What Happens After Midnight? (Nothin Good!) says it all! If you enjoy the blues, great lead guitar work and rockin' female vocals, this CD is a must have!
