It is my holiday project. Please check back! Thanks for the JB Hutto recommendation. I love the Women of The Blues! A few more are represented on the soon to be updated list. I found the episode and riff you are referring to. Did not recognize it or saw that it mentioned in the credits. I am on it though. Please let me know if you figure it first.
I like your list bro. And fuck the naysayers. Music is a subjective experience and the only opinion that matters when making a list of your favorites is your own. Thanks for sharing it. Hillbilly, Thanks for the new ones! Did you see that the Badloves dropped a new album the end of October? Blue Jean Blues is a zz top original as far as i know. Would be more fair to credit the original artists!! Mark, Thank you for providing a playlist that made for a good day.
And I never fail to be stunned and amazed by the number of lists that have NO mention of the late, great Ray Charles! Really, people?! Thanks Rhonda. That was a great list — especially Shannon Curfman — that was a new one for me. As for Ray, I am a fan and he appears twice on the Blues list. I picked up two new discoveries from the top of your list. Heard a cut or two on various podcasts, but really enjoyed the.
Joe Bonamassa is under represented on the original list. I agree. The next list will have some technology behind it that will hopefully allow this. Definitely a consideration — and thanks for bringing Savoy Brown back on my radar. Appreciate the note. It is unlikely we will ever become friends. The Rolling Stones absolutely belong on this list and I believe some of the legendary bluesman would agree.
They are solely responsible for leading me to the genre and my love of the music. They will remain here. Appreciate the new tunes to listen to. I have gone deep with Rory over the past several months — in part to your comment. Your list is awesome, and has introduced me to some very cool blues tunes. Thanks many times over, especially for introducing me to folks I never heard of before like Susan Tedeschi and A C Reed.
Perhaps for your update you can add something from the much maligned Ike Turner. Works for me! Listening to it now. Meh -. Blue on Black is one of the cooler blues rock songs out there. Agreed on Kenny Wayne Shepard. He has a place on the soon to be released update to the list. Would welcome any others. Thanks man! I am in the process of tweaking the list this year. Would welcome your thoughts on what is missing — and any tips on new blues artists to give a listen to. Re-working the list now. I will dial them up again for another listen.
Tinsley and Guitar Shorty were already on the short list. Leaving out the genius of Peter Green with Fleetwood Mac from this list is a major oversight. Susan Tedeschi is cool, but …. Thanks for the comment. I am in the midst of an overhaul of the list and thank you for pointing out Peter Green.
The old Fleetwood Mac deserves a spot — or two. As for Susan Tedeschi, a definite soft spot for her from her early years in Boston.
Thanks again. Burgher, thanks for the note. I was blind, and have played this one at least a dozen times since your comment. It will be on version 2. No one though can really criticize the list. Thanks for the note and reading all For a blues purist such as yourself, this is not your list. All influenced by the blues, but the songs are not all able to be pigeonholed in the blues genre. I am ok with that. Why not? You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

Muddy is my favorite, but I love J. Hutto too. Paula Like Like. Paula, Thanks for the note. Funny that. Chicky, I found the episode and riff you are referring to.
