"We tried to get a "Rural Feel' on these tunes, and I think we got the down home goods here. Hope you feel the same way" - Mark Hummel

Grammy Nominated Harp Ace Mark Hummel is moving forward by looking backwards on his brand new Electro-Fi release WAYBACK MACHINE, and he’s picked a sweet spot in Blues History to explore, the Glorious Bluebird Records sound of the 1930’s and 40’s. Joining Mark on the disc is first call Chicago Guitarist BILLY FLYNN, the Red Hot West Coast Combo THE DEEP BASEMENT SHAKERS, and Mississippi Bluesmaster JOE BEARD. The Dynamic 16 tracks on this CD were recorded by CHRIS KID ANDERSEN at the Legendary Greaseland Studios in San Jose, CA. No doubt WAYBACK MACHINE is destined to become one of the most talked about Traditional Blues releases of 2020.
