Next year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of an album that is still my biggest seller, Blues Deluxe, which was when I was a wee 26 years old. 

The album is a collection of cover songs and also includes four original compositions, including the track Woke Up Dreaming, which, to this day, I still perform at almost every show. I thought it would be cool to revisit the approach I used for that album to record what will soon be released as Blues Deluxe, Vol. 2.
