Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments A bit of a drop in the number of participants this week, not helped by an act of sheer numptiness on behalf of one un-named individual, but hey, 12 is still not too bad.

I think we all know the drill by now, 4 point scoring system in operation, just makes sure to add them up correctly. Voting will close at 10 pm on Thursday, no late votes counted.

The playlist is here:

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments And another one draws to a close. Good round that one, think I will need to expand my Otis Taylor collection.

The winner this week, an excellent nom from Brass Neck, Nasty Letter. Sharing second place, Val's Never Been To Africa and Jump To Mexico from Lez, and just kept off the podium, Tech;s Ten Million Slaves.

Well done the winners, the rest of us have to try a little harder next round.

theDuke | 5669 comments And i'll need to get me Otis's right! Opps!

Well done winners, really liked Nasty Letter.

Serial Sock Trumpet (serialsocktrumpet) | 1878 comments I recommend 'White African', one of his best albums imo.

The only one I have is Clovis People Vol. 3, from whence my nom came. I have always been going to get around to adding to it, never have done though, something else always pops up. Will put that right soon enough.

Lez | 7490 comments I enjoyed these too, never heard of him before. Will investigate.
