Default Just getting started in Blues...

Thanks for the heads up Hogan. Any playlist anybody puts down is all good.

I got Sonny Boy boxed set on my list of things to do. I'm just really scratching the surface of blues. I'm not familiar with all the names you mentioned. What surprises me is the depth and range of blues guys I've never heard of.

I like my blues so raw it's like right out of the hen house. I like blues old as I can find it.

I like Son House and Skip James but I don't think I've found everything that is out there. This can't be all of it. Guys like Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, and Wilson Pickett start to make more sense the more I create the connections.

The more I listen. The more I hear. Go figure.

I circled a boxed set of Johnny Cash stuff in honor of Slap. WTH

I stumbled across Norah Jones. She's got that sweet baby girl blues. Really love her warm sexy tones. Billie Holiday would scare the crap out of her.

Etta James, Mavis Staples, and some of the other Blues divas are starting to come into focus. Don't have a clue whose out there but I'm looking.
