"A pregnant pause by the former European Blues Awards Best Solo/Acoustic finalist, when changing his guitar (no roadies here folks!), as Francis next dispatched a beautifully poignant acoustic number, before closing out with a cover and singalong to JJ's 'Mercedes Benz', and finished with the Aynsley Lister vibe of 'Blinded By The Bistro'. We're in no doubt that Mike's appeal for his "Help Musicians" collection box was well rewarded after this great start to the evening." That was part of our take on Bluesman Mike Francis when he supported both Big Boy Bloater and The Bitter Pills at London's 100 Club in May (pictured), and consequently Liverpool and Philadelphia's finest has been voted Best Unplugged in our 2022 WRC Awards, as evidenced by today's Video Of The Day of 'Five More Wishes', recorded live in Liverpool one month later.
