Right Place, Wrong Time
Otis Rush - Cold Day in Hell
Another good Otis disc
Another good Delmark disc
Johnny Winter- Scorchin' Blues
Epic/ Legacy Records
A good compilation of Columbia and Blue Sky Records. Includes a nice live version of Mean Town Blues from the Filmore East.
I was watching the YouTube video of Johnny playing Mean Town Blues at Woodstock last night. Highly recommended if you haven't seen it in a while.
More Johnny Winter
Johnny Winter- self titled
I've got that Scorchin' CD.
Short, but sweet comp. Probably not the most authoritative Winter comp out there, but it's got good flow.
A lotta goodness to be found in those Sony/Legacy/Roots N Blues CDs, and they can often be had for a song. Heck there's a copy of this one on amazon right now for $1.29.
This one and Progressive Blues (also titled Austin Texas) are JW at his most soulful.
Johnny Winter- Progressive Blues Experiment
I didn't buy this for the longest time because of the album cover in combination with the name made me wonder if it would be a train wreck of an album. I don't like my blues progressive or an experiment.
Glad I finally did buy it.
John Hammond - Mirrors
Freddie King - Woman Across The Water
Johnny Winter- Nothin' But the Blues
Blue Sky Records
Johnny Winter and - Live
It's surprising how many of my Johnny Winter discs were on the clearance rack (and still have the sticker)
Win-win for me
Found this CD sealed at the local thrift.
Being sealed I searched Youtube to give it a listen.
I would rather leave it sealed and move it on if I didn't like it.
Not bad. I need to listen to these tracks on Youtube more to see if they grow on me.
I prefer the Chicago Electric Guitar Blues sound more.
Sonny Boy Williamson
The Checker Singles: 1955-1962
Jimmy Dawkins- Blues and Pain
Wild Dog Blues Records
Jimmy Dawkins- All For Blues
I listen to Jimmy Dawkins regularly.
Great Blues man.
Jimmy Dawkins- Blistering
Jimmy Dawkins- Fast Fingers
Otis Rush - All Your Love I Miss Loving
Live at the Wise Fools Pub, Chicago
He swings, he hits, and it's out of the park!
I was just this moment listening to an early 80's indie band and was admiring the guitar tone. Which got me to thinking that so much of what turns me on isn't necessarily speed or skill, it's the sound. In most every genre, the hypnotic guitar tone is what draws me in. There are gobs of great guitar players but often I find myself bored with "shredding" and execution.
I saw Jimmy Dawkins in a club a long time ago but can't remember it.
The Legend Of Elmore James
Original Folk Blues
Yes some people can hit the notes and some can just flat play. However I can't do either so I enjoy listening to those that can.
Albert King- Live
Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan - In Session
Truckload Of Lovin' - Albert King
Promo label press.
Live Wire/Blues Power - Albert King
