Album Notes
"Ridin' The Blinds" is the 2nd Blues Hounds single release of 2019, as we build our 3rd US album.
It evokes images of a train pulling out of a station & building up to maximum speed on way to its destination - starting off slow after the final "All aboard" call & building steam to reach its full potential out on the open tracks.

Many old-time Blues artists of eras past would resort to "riding the blinds" to get from town to town - a dangerous practice of hiding between train cars in the concealed areas of fabric between the cars that often injured, maimed, or killed the people hiding there trying to get a free ride. But many still resorted to traveling this way because they didn't have the funds to purchase a ticket.

This song's overall vibe & lyrics tell of a man who rides the blinds to go find his lost love & try to win her back, & is full of rich popular imagery used in many old Blues songs of the 1920s, 30s & 40s, when this practice of hopping a train was the most common.

Sit back, soak up the imagery, & join us for a trip on this Blues train, while we go "Ridin' The Blinds" with Harold Stewart & The Blues Hounds!!!
