Late Freight

Late Freight
$19.95

The blues record that nearly wasn't. Recorded in 1977 but never pressed to vinyl, Late Freight has been digitally remastered and is now available to the public for the very first time. Featuring covers from legendary blues writers such as Muddy Waters, Carey Bell, and Walter Jacobs, Late Freight also includes two original compositions from Bob Riedy. As one of the few studio albums of Chicago Blues music produced during this period, Late Freight is a must-listen for blues fans and historians alike.
