Robert Herndon single available at iTunes

Robert and I have become good friends since I posted here about his restoration work on his Mum’s Silvertone guitar.

Robert has a blues band, The Robert Herndon Project Blues Band, and he’s released a single of two tunes that I’ve featured on the Blues Show.

Track 1 is a version of Albert King’s Born Under A Bad Sign, while Track 2, Slide, is an original song dedicated to all of the Kings of the Blues, by name or by reputation. I really like the way the slide guitar parts reflect the 2 sides of different conversations.
You can listen to excerpts from the tracks, and buy them, here:
