Freegal Streaming Suggestions*
13 Avenue South (2018) by Travellin´ Brothers (Genre: Blues, Swing, Jazz, Funk, Rock):
The Travellin’ Brothers are just breaking into a wider audience with their new LP 13 Avenue South.
They have a great horn section and their sound hearkens back to the days of Stax; despite that fact – they are actually from Bizkaia which is located in northern Spain – although the vocals on the album are all in English. This is a fun LP!
Songs on the record include: Peggy Sue Got Divorced, Sweet Corrine, As Good as It Gets, I Believe and Last Fair Deal Going Down.
Depacla 2 (2009) by Depapepe (Genre: Classical, Easy Listening, Acoustic):
Depapepe is a duo consisting of acoustic guitarists Takuya Miura and Yoshinari Tokuoka. And this album features a nice collection of light classical songs.
Songs on the album include: Pomp and Circumstance, Wedding March, Fantasia on Greensleeves, Turkish Rondo and Orpheus in the Underworld Overture.
Dream Attic (2010) by Richard Thompson (Genre: Guitar, Folk, Rock):
2010 release by the talented singer-songwriter guitarist, and former member of the British Folk group Fairport Convention.

In The Blue Light (2018) by Paul Simon (Genre: Rock, Pop, Singer-Songwriter):
