A friend recently asked me to recommend some blues to listen to. So, I figured I’d just write a post about it. Of course, in some cases, I found multiple versions for an individual artist, and it’s fun to hear the evolution.
UPDATE: Put these into a YouTube playlist
Robert Johnson: Perhaps “the” classic acoustic blues player. Crossroad Blues.
Lightnin’ Hopkins: Evil Hearted Woman
Muddy Waters: Rollin’ Stone Where the Rolling Stones got their name.
T-Bone Walker: Wrote the blues standard Stormy Monday
“The Three Kings of Blues”: BB King, Albert King, Freddie King. Generally regarded as influential electric blues players, composers. Lots of standards created by these guys. A very comprehensive writeup on them here.
- BB King: The Thrill is Gone Among other things, famous for his “hummingbird” vibrato technique.
- Albert King: Born Under a Bad Sign (Live 1981), with Stevie Ray Vaughan (1983), Album Version
- Freddie King: Key to the Highway (Live 1972)
Albert Collins: Iceman
Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown: Born in Louisiana (Austin City Limits)
Buddy Guy: Damn Right I’ve Got the Blues (Guitar Center TV)
Robert Cray: Nothin’ But a Woman
Stevie Ray Vaughan: Tightrope (Austin City Limits)
Obviously, there are many, many other blues artists out there, so this is just offered as a starting point.
Upon reboot, I got this error
