My Dad who passed away a few years ago was a blues fan. My mother just gave me a couple of his CD's:
I really like this one. It's way to short to be definitive, but it the 11 songs are terrific: Luther Allison, Junior Wells, Arthru "Big Boy Crudup, Artie White, Ike and Tina Turner, Bobby Bland, Mississippi Johyn Hurt, Chris Thomas King, John Lee Hooker, Memphis Minnie and Memphis Slim.
This one is interesting. I have heard the song, "Goodnight Irene", but honestly had never heard of Lead Belly. It is equal parts blues and folk, I would say. The recordings are from the 30's and 40's and the sound is so so....maybe like listening to early Armstrong recordings.
I enjoy the songs. Being a child of the 70's, the more electric Mississippi Blues is more my cup of tea. But, I can see Lead Belly's historical significance.
Love this 2013 throwback to 70's female fronted punk.....great vintage sound.
I've been listening to this a lot. I like Ellington. This is basically a reinterpretation of his classics in the 80's by the Ellington Orchestra in the modern era. Branford Marsalis plays on a couple of tracks.
Vicious sever the jugular Greek Black Metal-heavy, fast and well done for the genre.
