Long drive today, and I hit the "blues" in the ol' iTunes genres for the first time in a while. Dam I forgot how amazing Stevie Ray Vaughn was. Live version of "Leave my little girl alone " had me choked up. My god he was good. RIP.
Anyone want to share a favorite blues artist or track ?

I saw him close out a show with this one. Turned into an awesome extended jam live.

Bessie Smith Kitchen Man 1929. Whoever said suggestive lyrics were a recent event has not listened to these words.

be careful what you ask for, boy




Before Chess records, Willie Dixon was still damn good.



A great, underappreciated piece by George 'Harmonica' Smith

Before there was the Black Keys, there was Hound Dog Taylor. Check out Brewster Brewer Phillips guitar work on this Hound Dog Taylor track. Smoking

Buddy Guy and Junior Wells have belted out some excellent Blues in their careers.

I bought this CD almost 30 years ago and still is one of my favorites.
