New CD In Store Now

Maybe it's in more than one store, but I know for sure it's in the blues section at HMV on Yonge Street, Toronto. I also found it at Amazon.ca. Not on iTunes yet but that's supposed to happen any day. I've been hearing it on the radio, CBC has it in their "system" now so it may make its way onto some CBC radio shows. Speaking of CBC, I found myself walking alongside Jian Gomeshi on Frnt Street as we left the JUNO Award Nominee announcement thang and handedr him a copy of the new CD. He graciously took it and asked the same thing everybody asks when I hand them a CD, "Is that you in the picture?" Yes, it's me forty years ago, sitting in the rocker at Fraser & DeBolt's farm aka Swallow Hollow.  Then he said,  "Brian Blain. That's a good name. I wish I had that name." Today I was on the phone trying to fill some dates for my Quebec tour in April. Left a couple of messages and I'm exhausted. I'm no good at this. I'd rather be playing guitar.
