Your favourite blues record

Post by Ulysses » Mon Feb 04, 2019 3:33 am

I like Freddie King's first record, "Freddie King sings" perhaps best. It's filled with classics such as Tore down, Have you ever loved a woman and I love the woman. My personal favourite is "If you believe (In what you do)", Freddie's voice on that is unequaled for me. I also like Willie Dixon's I am the blues, and I can even admit that I like him doing Spoonful almost as much as I like the Wolf doing it. Back door man on that album is one of my favourite tracks.

I don' have one favourite Blues record, there are many and the list changes frequently. Some all time favs are EC's :big_smile: From the Cradle and the Bluesbreakers or John Lee Hookers The Healer, but some days I listen to BB King as much as Albert and Freddie...

Oh yeah, I think everyone's fond of Bluesbreakers with EC. Completely forgot about it.

I don't really have a favorite... I do still remember my dad bringing home Taj Mahal's Giant Step/De Old Folks at Home album in 1970 when I was seven. I loved that album then and still do songs from it whenever I play a gig. Playing along with the Beano album helped me move from playing scales to actually playing blues licks.
