Okay, so my city library organises a book/CD/DVD market at which they sell old stock. Usually i might find the odd one or two CDs that doesn't look as if they are run over by a freighttrain and take them home for a buck a piece. Ussually all items have a ton of stickers on them so people know they are property of the library so they are not in prestine quality.

Well, i often have a sort of a "build in radar" when it comes down to unannounced stock sales at music stores and warehouses so when i went to the city library this weekend i immediately spotted that the amount of books, cds and dvds on sale was bigger than ussually. It appears that the amount of titles they want to keep in stock will decrease in the future. You could buy single titles for 1 euro (approx. 1dollar and 35 cents) or fill an entire plastic bag for a fixed price and with a maximum of 10 CDs/DVDs.

So i've got (some of which i never expected my library had in stock anyway):

- James Blood Ulmer - In And Out (CD)

- Soulive - No Place Like Soul (CD)

- Ian Siegal - Broadside (CD)

- The Holmes Brothers - Righteous! - Essential Collection (CD)

- Jonny Lang - Turn Around (CD)

- Jonny Lang - Long Time Coming (CD)

- Watermelon Slim - Escape From The Chicken Coop (CD; usually excellent blues but this is a damn fine country
release)

- Dave Matthews Band - Big Whiskey and..... (CD)

- Popa Chubby - Electric Chubbyland (3CD set with Hendrix covers; 2 live discs and 1 studio)

- Scott Henderson - Live! (2CD)

- The Answer - Everyday's Demons (1CD + bonus DVD; CD probably unplayable)

- Wilco - Ashes Of American Flags - concert film (DVD)

- Blackmore's Night - Paris Moon (1 CD + 1 DVD)

- Wattstax - festival film (DVD)

- Steve Earle - Live At Montreux (DVD)

- in order to fill my bag i added three books as well (one of them makes a nice gift)

so all in all it was for a grant total of 5 euro (about 7 dollars)!!!!!! One hell of a lucky catch. But now i start running out of space to store my music even faster...

Ian Siegal comes on my Pandora now and then. No nothing of him other than that I like what I hear on Pandora.

Can you give a quick take on him?

He's toured the US at least some...and recorded/toured with the NMAS.

Duane Betts, Cody Dickinson and Lightnin' Malcolm just went to England and did a 2/3 week tour as his backing band.

I've got 2 of his cd's and they are ok, but did get to see him live last summer and it was outstanding, one of those truly great roll of the dice/small crowd/WOW shows.

I think he is due back in the US the Spring/Summer.

They tour and record as the North Mississippi Mudbloods. Alvin Youngblood Hart was originally involved and I was at their first ever show (Siegal, Youngblood Hart, Luther & Cody).

The recent UK tour was a very low-key affair - five dates and none in big cities.

Siegal regularly wins Best Vocalist in British Blues polls. He has his own band and also appears solo.

The NMM is the format in which I've enjoyed him best although he dominates too much for my taste.

I've seen Ian Siegal dozens and dozens of times, i catch him whenever he plays local and i'll travel to see the guy too. His albums are great, but in a live setting is where he is at his best. I live in Nottingham, and so did Ian for many years, so i've seen him grow as a performer (having said that, he always had an air of confidence/arrogance about him). Shavian is correct, sometimes he does dominate proceedings, although not on the recent tour with Duane, Cody and Lightnin' Malcolm, where he let all the members shine. He'll play Blues, Country, old folky stuff, Prince interludes, Johnny Cash covers. In a solo setting he'll bust out obscure songs that are superb, yet you may never catch them again. One of the best gigs i ever saw him was solo maybe 12 years ago, and he played Tom Waits' 'Train Song', the cover was sublime, and very beautiful...never heard him do it since! I love the guy, and would recommend his Meat & Potatoes album, ideally the CD/DVD set if you can find it.
