YOU might not get authenticity from the old Etonian dipping his toes into the muddy waters of the blues, but Hugh Laurie can afford to summon up a decent band, so his new album, Didn't It Rain, has its good points.
The comic actor has been an enthusiast for Professor Longhair since his Cambridge Footlights days, apparently, and he has a bash at some of the old chestnuts, with appearances from Gaby Moreno and Taj Mahal.
Album tracks include The St Louis Blues, Vicksburg Blues, Send Me To The 'Lectric Chair and Careless Love, and the Evening Post has three copies of the disc to give away.
For your chance to win one, just answer the following question:
What is Hugh Laurie's new album called?
The closing date is: Friday, May 31, and the winners will be the first correct entries drawn at random.
