Industrial Blues is a new creation. Blues woman, Gaye, and her son, Juno (aka DJ Blacula - The Junabomber) collaborate and merge genres. Juno reworks Gaye's traditional blues songs into programmed sounds with layered rhythms and textures. Gaye then performs her signature vocals with a totally different sound surrounding them. Blues Mama and her Black Son step boldly into unknown territory. This is their musical bloodline.

Blues Gone Black contains 11 songs (5 previously recorded and 6 brand new originals).
Total running time -- 48:51.

Classic Blues was the first blues - the first blues to be recorded for popular consumption. It was grounded in folk blues combined with vaudeville stylings. It was almost exclusively performed by women who were unashamed to lay their souls bare, unafraid to give advice. In 2004, Adegbalola & Barnes embrace and redfine this style as Neo-Classic Blues.
Neo-Classic Blues contains 20 songs, most from the 1920s and 30s.
