Wishing you all the very best of the Holiday Season and proudly announcing the release of our new MARK HUMMEL CD WAYBACK MACHINE on January 17th, 2020.
“MARK HUMMEL is one of the Very Top Notch Guys on the Blues Harmonica Scene Today. He’s a Great Traditional Player.” - BILLY BOY ARNOLD
Grammy Nominated Harp Ace MARK HUMMEL is moving forward by looking backwards, on his new Electro-Fi CD release “WAYBACK MACHINE” and he’s picked a sweet spot in Blues history to explore, the glorious Bluebird Records sound of the 30’s and 40’s. Joining Mark on the disc is Chicago First Call Guitarist BILLY FLYNN, Red Hot West Coast Combo the DEEP BASEMENT SHAKERS, and Mississippi Bluesmaster JOE BEARD. The Dynamic 16 tracks on this album were recorded by CHRIS KID ANDERSEN at the legendary Greaseland Studios in San Jose, CA. No doubt Wayback Machine is destined to be one of the most talked about Traditional Blues releases of 2020!
“Mark Hummel is one of the finest and most diverse Harmonica players in the world. Wayback Machine manages to capture the spirit of an age. One of the finest works I’ve heard all year”. - Bill Wilson, Reflections in Blue.
Mark will also be kicking off his long running Blues Harmonica Blowout Tour on January 3rd in Seattle with the 2020 Edition: SUPERSTARS OF THE BLUES HARP. It’s aptly named as the line up features Mark along with MAGIC DICK from the J.Geils band, LEE OSKAR, JERRY PORTNOY from the Eric Clapton band, and Guitar Legend DUKE ROBILLARD, along with BOB WELCH and the stellar rhythm section of R.W.GRIGSBY and WES STARR.

GEORGE HARMONICA SMITH named to the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame
Inductees Class of 2020. Ceremony to take place in Memphis, TN on May 6th, 2020.
What great news about a very worthy addition to the Blues Foundation’s Hall of Fame.
Here at Electro-Fi we had the privilege of releasing the “Teardrops Are Falling” CD
in 2011. A Live in Concert performance with Buddy Reed and the Rocket 88’s band
backing George in a club in Tempe, AZ. During June of 1983, just a few short months before his passing later that year.
George truly was the Godfather of the West Coast Harp scene. Thanks to Mark Hummel
And Buddy Reed for helping make the release of this disc possible. Now unfortunately out of print, it remains available on iTunes, Spotify and many other digital platforms.
