.music: Blue highway (Team Free Will)

I've been down for the count for the past couple of weeks, but one of the good things is I tracked down a bunch of new music to add to my collection, and was able to finagle some of the blues stuff into a mix. "Blue Highway" is a bit different from the previous blues collections; there are some different versions of old songs (seriously, check out Bessie Smith's "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out") and some instrumental, especially guitar and harmonica. I hope you guys enjoy it!

The mix is a bit looser in conception than some of the others I've done. The general theme is life on the road, eventually focusing on Dean, Sam, and Cas down and out as S5 draws on.

Fantastic, thank you!

I have a number of these sung by different artists and I always enjoy hearing them from other singers.

Oh... and the "down for the count" comment? just really busy? or sick??

Looks incredible (and I love the cover art, per usual - something about that particular color blue is so gorgeous). Downloading!
