How Digitaldreamdoor.com's Greatest Blues Guitarists list includes Clapton but not Hendrix baffles my mind...

Though I only own a few blues records lol my favourites are these

1. Albert King - Born Under a Bad Sign
2. Stevie Ray Vaughn and Albert King in the studio
3. S.R.V and double trouble - Texas flood
4. Albert Collins - Don't lose your cool

Albert Collins just release a new live DVD "live at Montreux 1992" probably worth checking out been getting good reviews.

I also have a compilation of blues, a BB king compilation, and Robert Johnson's songs.

together we stand, divided we fall..........

Here is another suggestion and its free. If you have iTunes on your PC, go over to their online radio stations. There are various categories (rock, classical, etc.). There is a Blues category - click into there and you will get non-stop blues. I often listen and "discover" guys I never heard of, just ripping it up!

I dont know if everyone has this option but my local cable network has digital music divided up into genre categories. When I find a new style I like I sometimes will listen to that channel for a day and see what they play, it also displays the name of the artist and the name of the song so that I can go look for more stuff in that style that I like.

Hum.. just re-read all that and it seems like very obvious, worthless advice.. ehh I'll post it anyway. :D

just for the record, (i.e. to be a pedant, lol), Albert Collins died in 1993 or so, so he couldn't have put that new dvd out, but his 'people' probably did. thus explaining why it is from so long ago (although 1992 feels like it was yesterday, lol)

I'm going to mention Johnny Lang. His new stuff is alot different, but check out the "Lie to Me" album. Its got some great blues on there for the most part. He was real good for a while, I'm not so much into anymore.

I'll add one of my own I ran across:

Michael Burks

He is "current". Look him up on MySpace so you can hear a few of his songs. Damn!

If you want "Current" Players check out Tab Benoit, Joe Bonamasso, Kenny Wayne Sheppard and Walter Trout

Immature? Of course I'm immature Einstein, I'm 50 and in a Rock and ROll band.
