top 5 blues records by caroline de maigret. kick back.

Caroline De Maigret is the musical model living in the city of lights. Love blossomed with a certain monsieur Yarol Poupard and from it sprung their independent record label, Bonus Track Records. Vinyl is without a doubt the ultimate way of listening to a record and De Maigret knows it. With an impressive collection (and a recording studio) in her apartment, we asked the music maker to select her top 5 Blues records and here's what she came up with... "My skin, my heart, my guts belong to those songs. They give me goose bumps, they make me wanna dance, they make me wanna cry, they make me feel alive."
