Muddy Waters- Folk Singer- Wow.

Thread Starter 

Wow,

I was listening to this last night and everytime it just blows me away. It amazes me the magical recordings they were able to attain awhile back. Just a wonderful album.

Yea, the Blues is really something special. I don't know why we don't have an "Appreciation Thread" for it. It's the godfather of Rock/Metal.

 

Muddy Waters 

Albert King - Check this guy out. Try his "King of the Blues Guitar" album.

Robert Johnson - The most mysterious man in Blues.

Junior Wells

Lonnie Johnson - Smooth as a slick-black Cadillac. Check out his "Complete Folkways Recordings" album if you dig Muddy's "Folk Singer."

Freddie King

Howlin' Wolf

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Rock infused Blues

Joe Bonamassa - Rock infused Blues

Walter Trout - Rock infused Blues

Warren Haynes - Rock infused Blues.

... The list goes on.

I love this album. It's one of the best recordings I own. It should be in every audiophile's collection.

Here's a great quote from Willie Dixon (who plays bass on Folk Singer):

 

"The blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits. It’s better keeping the roots alive, because it means better fruits from now on. The blues are the roots of all American music. As long as American music survives, so will the blues."

Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues.

i saw the movie he was documented in, and the energy of the songs sang in the movie got me digging into the blues genre, although its a little hard to find where to get blues songs, I only have just a classic hits edition definitely want more

I just got a 50 CD box set at Amazon.de of mostly great pre-war blues. Shipped to the US it came out less than a buck a disk.
