OK, I've been a fan of the Blues for years, but I've never really delved into it past a few artists and compilations. I love the sound and feeling and it's had a big influence on me musically. I prefer the Delta Blues sound over the Chicago electric stuff, but it's all good and it's so REAL.

I've been listening to a lot of early George Thorogood lately (before the drinking anthems made him famous) and he did many old great blues standards by the likes of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Willie Dixon, etc. So I'm in the mood and want to delve a little deeper.


Robert Johnson - King of the Delta Blues


So far, I have these artists and comps:

BLUES BROS. - Briefcase Full of Blues
JOHN LEE HOOKER - The Best of John Lee Hooker
ROBERT JOHNSON - The Complete Recordings
KAISER, MANSFIELD, HOWARD - The Blues Night
GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS - s/t
GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS - Move it On Over
GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS - Greatest Hits
V/A - Blues Gold (feat. Muddy Waters, Big Mama Thornton, Howlin' Wolf, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, etc)[/font]


John Lee Hooker


And I have heard or owned these at one time or another:

BUDDY GUY - Damn Right I Got the Blues
BLIND WILLIE JOHNSON - Roots of Blues Collection
LEADBELLY - Bourgeois Blues
V/A - The Alligator Records 20th Anniversary Collection
V/A - The Blues: Chess Records Compilation

There have probably been others, but that's all I can remember right now.


Chester "Howlin' Wolf" Burnett

How about the rest of you? Are you fans? What have you heard/who do you like? Any recommendations for me?

Yes these are very good
I love blues. Of the young pups I would have to rave about the seldomn heard Eric Gales, Craig Erickson, Michael Lee Firkins, and of course the much heard SRV, Robin Trower, and Johnny Winters

I think the Kaiser/Mansfield projects were stellar and I am grateful because they started a rabbit trail that led to Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Gary Davis aka Rev Gary Davis, Mahalia Jackson and Washington Phillips. I also really dig Mansfield/Turner and Rev Dan Smith. Sleepy Ray McDonald is brillant (if you can find it) as was Chris Lizotte's New Breed label releases, and Lanny Cordola's blues projects were also very very good.

Of the morphing tyoe I have to say that 16 Horsepower and Woven Hand are on my top list of all artists

Speaking of the blues. I live in the far northern suburbs of Chicago, back in the day when I was going to Oakton Community College, me and my Psychology prof. used to make at least a weekly trip down to Sheridan road to a little place called Biddy Mulligans. You never knew who would pop in there in those days. I don't think Biddy Mulligans exists anymore, but those were the days.

Wow, being able to go to blues shows in Chicago sounds so cool! Sort of like Seeing Sabbath in Birmingham or AC/DC in Australia!

Hooker rules! I think I've seen that Jimmy Page stuff around in different forms over the years...

I love Delta/Country Blues the most..

Mississippi Fred McDowell, R.L. Burnside, Charlie Patton, Elmore James,
Junior Kimbrough, Son House, Lightnin Hopkins, Muddy Waters, John Lee
Hooker, Rev. Gary Davis, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Blind Lemon Jefferson,
Jessie Mae Hemphill, Revered Charlie Jackson, Mississippi John Hurt,
Super Chikan, Robert Randolf, but also alot of the old school christian
steel guitar players as well..

If you really wanna get old school and get into authentic music that goes
outside just blues, you should check out alot of the stuff Alan Lomax
recorded in the field. Alot of true gems there, like Black Spirituals.
The Georgia Sea Island singers are so awesome, but you also come
across some Black church music services that are so rockin', I'm surprised
the roof didn't cave in. Man.. you can really tell on some of those
songs that the Holy Spirit is present and it comes through even the
recordings..

I really wanna buy this box set called "Goodbye, Babylon"..
It's $100 bones, but worth it..

http://www.dust-digital.com/goodbye-babylon.htm

If you wanna listen to some samples from all 160 (!) tracks.. goto
this link..

Anyone else into Fat Possum Records artists? It's an entire label
dedicated to modern people playing old-style blues ... there's some
real delta style to be found on that label.

Yeah, I listed a few that are on that label, like Junior Kimbrough
and R.L. Burnside. Robert Belfour is pretty killer as well.
T-Model Ford is alright, he's got a few cool songs..

The Black Keys are pretty good. And you should definitely check
out The Heartless Bastards FIRST cd, "Stairs and Elevators".

Hasil Adkins was on there for awhile as well..

Kenny Brown is an awesome guitarist, he has his own cd out and
played alot with R.L. Burnside.

I also mentioned, Super Chikan!!! He's great and has some cd's on
Fat Possum..


I'm REALLY REALLY THANKFUL I got see R.L. Burnside live a couple
of times. He was such an inspiration for me and really got me
into the Delta blues. Those shows are right at the top of killer
live shows. He passed away last year.
