Arthur Brown’s latest offering shows that this venerable performer has no intention of opting to grow old gracefully.

The Cowboy Junkies bring their graceful and understated approach to bear on a choice selection of covers.

Blues fans are also well catered for, with Krissy Matthews and Mike Zito strutting their stuff and the Down Home Blues anthology shining a spotlight on an array of relatively obscure artists (main photo: Adobe).
