Crossroads celebrates the centennial birthday of blues slide guitar great Elmore James with classic recordings, covers of his songs (from the Allman Brothers, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more), and a special in hour two of the show.

We’ll also mark birthdays of soul singers Bobby Blue Bland and also of Bettye LaVette, including a preview of her new album of Dylan covers and a track she did for the new Elmore James centennial compilation, Strange Angels.

And we’ll get to a few more Crossroads favorites of 2017, including Savoy Brown, Wee Willie Walker, and Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm.
