Get The Blues – For Free!!!

Aiming right at the Father’s Day market, Got The Blues is a 4CD boxed set from UMOD of all-time blues classics designed to… well, one assumes to let dad know just how miserable life could be if it weren’t for his family showering him with gifts all the time. And asking him to lend them a tenner. And turn the TV over for Amazing Spacesinstead of the football. And stuff.
It’s packed full of classics by the genre’s biggest names, including Muddy Waters,John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, Bo Diddley,Little Walter, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Ray Charles, Solomon Burke, Memphis Slim… you name ‘em, they’re here.
Better yet, we here at Echoes have 5 copies to hand out to our readers and followers. All you have to do is email us at, tell us your name and address and answer this one question: ‘What exactly is a ‘Back Door Man’, according to Willie Dixon? You will then go into the sorting hat and take your chances in The Great Random Extrication Of Winners – something that sounds more impressive than it actually is, but you might get a free CD. Which is the point, after all.

Got The Blues is released on UMOD on 1st June 2018. Order here
