Hey,

I'm just getting into blues and I need some recommendations about good groups/albums to listen to. I'm already listening to Buddy Guy, B.B. King, and Eric Clapton but I am trying to expand a little. Thanks a ton.

Try some Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and John Mayal. Those are a few of my favs off the top of my head.

Not a group or an album, but check out LittleBrother's lessons on the Outta Site board.

Don't miss out on John Lee Hooker. 8)

And apparently some of the blues came to guitar via the piano, so people like Dr John and Professor Longhair are a good listen as well.

The Three Kings (B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King)

Albert Collins, oh man... So many to name.. 8)

Also, pick up the Allman Brothers Band "Live at the Fillmore East" album... It has an arrange of different songs and genre's, but they're all relitivly blues based, and the first couple of tracks are all blues... They'll rock your socks off!! (I mean, they'll blues your socks off!) :lol: 8)

Over at http://fatpossum.com/ you can get a bunch of terrific stuff from lesser-known latter day bluesmen from Mississippi. Folks like the recently departed R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Charles Caldwell, Johnny Farmer, and T-Model Ford. Great raw stuff straight out of the jukes.

Robert Cray, especially some of his earlier stuff. Jimi Hendrix the Blues album. Albert Collins and Albert King. Early Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green.

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Everyone listed here is a must listen.

Add this name to the list. Keb Mo (Kevin More), just dynamic dynamite IMHO.

If you never heard of him you can listen to a couple clips at this Amazon link.
