The Blues Collection" was a magazine series devoted to examining the wealth of history surrounding the emergence of 'electric blues' and the artists concerned. Each issue, published between 1993 & 1997, was devoted to an artist's work and was accompanied by a compilation recording of their songs. Some issues covered a mix of various artists and two Christmas issues of various artists were also included.A total of 92 recordings - as listed below - were issued in this manner in the UK, mainly CDs, but with some Cassette alternatives. A similar series of recordings was released in the European market, although this range (so far) appears to have only been 75 recordings due to copyright constraints.Six binders were made available in a 'roll-out' programme during the issues, enabling the containment of 15 issues per Binder; The Magazine PackageThe entire series was developed under the aegis of the DeAgostini company and its subsidiary publishers Orbis. The magazine series numbering is reflected in the suffix to the recording's catalogue number. E.g.: Issue 28 is suffix 028.A number of these compilations either previously existed, or subsequently appear, on other labels in their own right and under alternative titling.PM me if you have any news, comments, complaints or otherwiseI shall add supportive comment to titles as and when the mood takes me :)NOTE: This list is the UK issue order

We lost our good friend, Hubert Sumlin, in December 2011. Todd wrote a wonderful tribute song for Hubert and subsequently was invited to play it at Hubert's graveside. In February, an incredible array of musicians turned out at The Apollo Theater in NYC for the "Howlin' For Hubert" Concert to honor this wonderful man and musician. Todd performed with some legendary musicians including Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Buddy Guy, Eddie Shaw, James Cotton, Billy Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Keb Mo, Jimmie Vaughan, Shemekia Copeland and many many others. It was a wonderful tribute to an incredible man who inspired so many. It was an honor to offer him a bunk on our tour bus.We started 2012 with our traditional Winter Tour, covering 32 cities with various openers including Zach Heckendorf and Roger Clyne. It was fun to get back to playing a full night of BHTM music. At the end of March we played ski areas Okema Mtn, Mount Sunapee, and in a full on blizzard in Crested Butte. It was snowing so hard that our crew had to continually shovel snow from the stage while we played and several band members wore ski googles and helmets during the show. A bunch of the equipment blew up (it's a digital world now) but the band and fans hung in there and shared a truly unique concert experience. We played a handful of shows in the spring including a fun night in Myrtle Beach and the Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival. June 9th was a roaring sold out success at Red Rocks with Barenaked Ladies opening the show, and we rolled straight into 30+ summer shows billed as the "Last Summer On Earth" and featured BHTM, Barenaked Ladies, Blues Traveler, and Cracker. It was a really fun summer with lots of musicians sitting in with other bands and some late night socializing and jamming at our Stone Groove Lounge (a backstage camping tent complete with BBQ, drinks, lounge chairs, musical instruments, boom box, wind chimes, flamingo, and even a gnome). .August 25 and 26 marked the first ever Ride Festival in Telluride, Colorado. This was the first time we've ever hosted our own festival and we had a great turnout and a wonderful time. Hopefully there will be many more to come. We also played a late night show at the legendary Sheridan Opera House in Telluride the night before The Ride, so we can say we did it!.This Fall we played a cool festival in Fredericton, NB Canada and played a few gigs in the Northeast, including Springsteen's old haunt, The Stone Pony.Todd played several solo blues gigs this year and also sat in with quite a few Chicago Blues legends in his adopted home of Chicago. The musical director for the "Howlin' for Hubert" benefit was legendary musician and producer Steve Jordan. He and Todd got to know each other at the event, and Todd thought he would be a great candidate to produce the next BHTM CD. Steve, In addition to producing and playing with artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Keith Richards, John Mayer, and Eric Clapton, was also an original member of the Saturday Night Live band in the 1970's, and played in Paul Shaffer's World's Most Dangerous Band on The Late Night with David Letterman in the 1980's. Steve even toured with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as the Blues Brothers, one of our all time favorite movies! Todd sent Steve some demos. The next thing we knew we were heading to Chicago's Butcher Boy studio to work on a new CD. We booked a ten day session in November 2012 in hopes of getting some basic tracks and perhaps a few songs completed. The fit with Steve went so well that we ended up banging out 12 songs in ten days. We took our time putting the finishing touches together and the new CD "Black Bee Hive" is scheduled to be released in January 2014.We closed out 2012 with our first ever NYE appearance in Minneapolis. The Twin Cities have always been a great tour stop for us, so it was a fun way to ring in 2013.
