The Walkin Blues - Lightnin Hopkins - Greatest Hits! (Vinyl, LP)

Kingthe Mississippi-born singer and guitarist who was born on a cotton plantation. Live At The Regal is widely considered one of the best blues albums of all time and purportedly had a profound influence on British guitarists Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler. Among those influenced by her were Dinah Washington and Janis Joplin. What resulted was a fascinating and insightful aural document that commemorated a singer who bridged the divide between rural and urban blues styles.

The session features the veteran bluesman alone in the studio accompanying his strident vocals with slide guitar chords that exude a visceral rawness. She included a rip-roaring version of the tune on this stupendous live album, recorded in two locations: in front of inmates at Monroe State Prison and Oregon State Reformatory. Thornton is in imperious form here, blazing through her material like wildfire eating up a forest.

This Norman Granz-helmed late 50s session features the husky tenor saxophone of Ben Webster and finds Holiday putting her indelible stamp on a selection of jazz standards where she marries jazz sophistication with the deep emotional sincerity of blues music.

By then, Davis — who was proficient on the banjo, guitar, and harmonica — had been a minister for 30 years and had a string of LP) to his name that stretched back to the s. Blessed with a raspy soulful voice, which he accompanies with intricate acoustic guitar filigrees, Davis serves up 12 tunes on this intimate solo recital that bridge the divide between country blues and gospel music. He only started recording three years before his death, initially cutting gospel songs for the Paramount label.

The eight selections on this LP released 25 years after his demise were recorded in Chicago and showcased his plaintive high voice and intricate guitar accompaniment.

Lead Belly, Josh White, and B. King were among those influenced by Jefferson. Everything that Johnson recorded is on this track compilation, a compelling testament to his genius.

Though she was only 23 at the time, Raitt shows a remarkable musical maturity, convincingly uniting disparate styles via her passion for the music. He began his career in for a small Chicago indie label called Artistic before joining Chess a year later, where he stayed until He enjoyed a brief recording career but made a lasting impact with the 51 songs he recorded for Paramount in a fertile period between and The apotheosis of blues-rock.

He patented an earthy electric delta blues sound that was inspired by Robert Johnson whom he knew and Tampa Red. Though it mainly consisted of self-penned material, the influence of the Mississippi delta blues style is almost palpable. Backed by an ace band which includes pianist Otis Spann and blues legend Muddy WatersSmith breezes through eleven Little Walter tunes while putting his own indelible spin on them.

Renowned for his flamboyant stage act and colorful attire, Slim was also one of the first guitarists to use distortion. The album had a profound impact on British blues-rock bands.

Some of them turned up on this, his debut LP, a blues barnstormer that took his unique style of music to a new audience. Many of them appeared on this album, which despite its title, was recorded in a studio and not in front of an audience.

Witherspoon blends a rugged, bluesy earthiness with svelte jazz sophistication in the company of two legendary saxophonists Ben Webster and Gerry Mulligan and trumpeter Roy Eldridge. This triple CD set focused on an overlooked collection of early Hooker recordings that remained unreleased until the s. Strangely, none of his singles for the Chicago Chess label cut during the first half of the s entered the charts, but they were eventually rounded up on a well-received album, House Of The Blues.

Though the album shot to No. Nevertheless, Blues Breakers remains a highly-regarded cornerstone of British blues-rock and is an obvious pick for one of the best blues albums ever. He had big shoes to fill, but the Welwyn Garden City-born youngster immediately made a lasting impact with his intuitive grasp of the blues language.

Second Winterhis sophomore album — a three-sided LP with the fourth side left intentionally blank — featured his younger brother, Edgar, on keys. Before then, though, he was an aspiring bluesman influenced by the on-stage antics of extrovert guitarist T-Bone Walker and first made his mark in the s combining his smooth vocals with humorous lyrics and dazzling fretboard pyrotechnics.

The title song, a live recording, is an eloquent and humorous observation on the absurdity of racism and class division. Half of the songs were previously unissued sides, ranging from wailing blues ballads to sober meditations on loss, bad luck and prison life.

He was 56 when he recorded this track collection. It revived the New Orleans jazz style of the s via a selection of original material and covers arranged for piano, cornet, and banjo. Montgomery shared the vocals with Elaine McFarland. The biggest was the No. His innovation, radical at the time, of playing single-note melodies that combined expressive string-bending and vibrato, eventually became the norm and was adopted by a host of fretboardists, including Django Reinhardt and T-Bone Walker.

King and Willie Dixon. With its fusion of soulful urbanity and raw, delta earthiness, the record would prove a blueprint for modern blues recordings. It features guest cameos from Paul Simon, Carlos Santana, and an uncredited Steve Miller on a broad selection of material.

A potent blues-rock manifesto. McDowell is in magnetic form, shining on nine scintillating tracks. He was 35 years old when he recorded two sessions for the Okeh label after being recommended to the company by violinist, Willie Narmour. Three years shy of his sixtieth birthday, Water is backed by a superb band including pianist Otis Spann and harmonica player, James Cottondelivering a bravura performance. On this magnificent album, however, he played an acoustic guitar on what was an intimate, unplugged-style session that attempted to latch on to the folk music revival of the early 60s.

A landmark blues recording. He cut some singles for Chess Records in the 50s and later achieved a cult following in England, where he cut an album in with Eric Clapton on guitar. The star turn came from guitarist, Mike Bloomfield, whose fretboard work is outstanding throughout. More significantly, the exotic minute title song — defined by extended improvisational passages over a mesmeric, open-ended groove — lit the touchpaper for both acid and west coast rock.

East-West is widely acknowledged as one of the best and most influential albums in the history of blues rock. Burnside: Wish I Was In Heaven Sitting Down Fat Possum, For most of his life, this Mississippi-born practitioner of hill country blues received scant attention though in his final decade began to receive the accolades his music deserved. Although his craggy voice is mostly framed by slick, contemporary production values courtesy of looped beats and DJ scratchesthe music still resonates with an authentic, Mississippi delta-steeped blues feel.

Back in at the age of thirty, he was a newbie who helped reinvigorate the moribund US blues scene with the hit album, Bad Influence. Strong Persuaderhis fourth long-player recorded three years later, went double platinum in the USA, where it peaked at No.

King Of The Delta Blues Singers was the first-ever compilation of his music and helped Johnson reach a new audience in the s. Smitten by the blues at an early age, he became an itinerant guitar-playing singer who under the name Robert McCoy plied his trade in the Tennessee and Mississippi areas before moving to Missouri. Inhe reinvented himself as Robert Nighthawk and began playing electric guitar in Chicago — he was one of the first bluesmen to plug in — where he was soon recording some 45s for the Aristocrat and Chess labels.

By channelling the straight-talking soulfulness of Etta James and the no-nonsense imperiousness of Big Mama Thornton, Copeland forged her own declamatory style and showed that she could handle slow ballads and uptempo material with equal aplomb. Grammys would come later in her career and help to crown her the queen of contemporary blues, but Turn Up The Heat captures her at the start of what became a storied musical journey. After years of obscurity, James would finally taste acclaim in the s when he recorded more frequently.

This compilation focuses on his earliest recordings, a bunch of 78s made in for Paramount Records where he first established his idiosyncratic style. Vanguard, After his clutch of early 78s released in for Paramount fell on deaf ears, James slipped into anonymity but was rediscovered and coaxed back to the recording studio three decades later as a result of the s blues and folk revival.

James was 64 when he recorded Today! Unlike many blues singers of his era, Harpo had a light, satiny singing voice and was famed for his soulful blues harmonica playing as well as his guitar prowess. A former Baptist preacher who was imprisoned for a year after killing a man in self-defense, he sang with a sermonizing intensity, accompanying his vocals with metallic slide guitar.

Like Skip James, he recorded in for Paramount and was later plucked from obscurity by the folk-blues revival. The remaining antique gems are incredibly obscure.

A fascinating history lesson for delta blues scholars. The Real Folk Bluesmainly a compilation of earlier tracks for Chess, came out in This track retrospective spans two decades and features several cuts with McGhee playing the guitar. Of the five albums he made in his 35 years, this, his debut, is arguably his best, showcasing his compelling fretboard style and commanding tone.

That honor belonged to T-Bone Walkerwhose piece de resistance was doing the splits during a guitar solo. A pioneer of electric blues, Walker had a profound impact on many guitarists who followed in his wake, ranging from B. King to Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton. Despite being a compilation drawn from various late 50s sessions, T-Bone Blues had a unity of sound and intent that made it appear a coherent work.

However, behind the dazzling stage presence lay a considerable musical talent who blended blues with jazz and swing. Although his self-titled debut contained three Sleepy John Estes tunes alongside blues standards by Blind Willie McTell, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Robert Johnson, Mahal was able to stamp his personality on the material and imbue it with a sense of gritty authenticity.

New Orleans Piano Professor is a scintillating solo piano recital recorded in his hometown a year before his death. Let us know in the comments section below.

Too bad that you only looked at US and UK blues greats. You might wanna check them on Spotify or iTunes. This list has too many blues inspired classic rock bands on it.

They are not blues bands, no matter how hard they try. Its near impossible to get all of them, but you need to take the classic rock bands off and replace them with real blues players like the ones listed above. I have to disagree with you concerning the Alman Brothers not being a blues band. Although The Rolling Stones are definitely not a blues Band. When they tour they sit in with blues bands after the gig.

Strictly speaking, Harmonica Slim may be correct about several blues-inspired bands appearing on a blues-exclusive list. Blues musicians and writers who are now household names were driving buses or working odd jobs in many cases…. Chances are most of us would not even be aware enough to discuss, much less compile, a list of great blues albums if not for guys like John Mayall.

Cream were Cream, by no stretch of the imagination, can they be called a blues band. If not for rolling stones early blues albums not the rock stuff I only learn later on that type of music was blues, Also the animals, yardbirds and canned heat promoted the blues as pop music. That is true for a number of these picks. Those bands are not blues bands but, rather, blues-inspired. Exactly my sentiments. I noticed that too. I might beg to differ on The Allman Brothers though.

Hendrix played some killer blues. Not that I know of anyway. Canadian blues artists are missing here! Maybe you did research but you seem biased to American and English whites as well as universally recognized blues artists! You forgot Dutch Mason the Prime Minister of the blues. I am thinking that udiscovermusic is not living up to its name but being arrogant in essentially pushing the idea that blues is English-American. It originated somewhere, found a place in America, became known in England, Canada too I would argue and perhaps many other places.

I am prepared to ignore your future posts if you continue with American and English biases and continue ignoring Canada and other countries. You might want to re-evaluate your stance on Stevie Ray Vaughan too. It is one of my favourites of his, Family Style being another, but there is his live music too where we really see his genius unfiltered by record producers etc. Hi Bert.

I used to have in the early ies an album with Dutch band Living Blues. Im a bit sad that I dont have it anymore. I also remember that the guitarist played a black Gibson Les Paul Custom. Endless Boogie, John Lee Hooker. This has got to be on the list. Right on Bert. When I 1st heard Groeten uit Grolloo I was hookedhave many records of their music. Good listening. I totally agree that these 2 Dutch bands should be added to the list!

Anyway: thanks for your comment! Muddy Waters The London Sessions. Memphis Slim Lonesome. John Lee Hooker Jr. Live at Soledad Prison. Johnny Winter First Winter.

We went to Tower Records on Columbus Ave. Thank you, Wanda. I bought it, of course, and we went back to my place and played it several times. We agonised over Big Willie, because he appears on very few lists. We consoled ourselves with the fact that he composed so many tunes that are all over these albums. Chicken Shack appears on so few lists of greats, sad to say. Like you we have a soft spot for them. What about The Groundhogs? Groundhogs are great. I agree with you regarding Savoy Brown, John.

I thought the same thing. Joe Bonamassa is said by nearly all of the guitar, blues, and rock music magazines to be the best living blues guitarist and should be on the list he is much better than Johnny Lang, a contemporary who is on the list.

John Hammond, Jr. JB is a blues hack who can only play fast but has very little feel or soul. As far as best living guitarist, not sure if anyone tops Derek Trucks right now.

As far as Joe B…ur right on. A blues hack? Well, I respect that you are entitled to your opinion, but I wonder if you have heard him play live? And I do believe the late, great BB King would disagree with you…. And you are an expert? If so, one without open mindedness and compassion I would bet. Do you even play blues or are you an armchair critic? Your point is well taken. I agree. How is that left off? At least you did include Texas Flood …. Good to see Lonnie Johnson here. Have you heard his Blues and Ballads album with Elmer Snowden?

I cant imagine how anything could be better that this one. You missed a real gem……. Excellent recording with a superb interview of Nighthawk by Michael Bloomfield!

Is Awesome! Duke Robilliard — Dukes Blues — Delightfull! Rory Block — When a woman gets the blues — Sweet! A stunning album that never seems to get noticed…. Both worthwhile considerations for sure. It is an impossible task. No Percy Mayfield? Willie Dixon? Johnny Adams? Jack Bruce though you do have a Cream album? Bruce Fisher above is right! No Sonnie and Brownie or Gary Davis? Either of the first two Hot Tuna albums? Otis Grand, Blues 65 B. King, Live In Japan. No song by Roy Buchanan? The master of the Telecaster?

Remember, if we get rid of cross-over bands we can have a little more room for the class blues artists who created the music all these cross-over bands derived their music from.

All lists such as this are subjective of course, but I totally agree with Chris Moran. You know your stuff. I have 28 of them and I feel pretty good about that. Half of them are on vinyl though and I have a big job ahead of me digitizing them all. A tough job indeed! Great list! A great blues album, and did as much as any album to enlighten the average 70s rock fans to the greatness of the blues. Joe Bonamassa is easily worthy of this list. I agree and was going to post the same. How can you miss Hendrix Blues Album?

Also no love for anything Derek Trucks has been involved with. I love his playing, but this is ridiculous. John Mayall is not in the pantheon of blues artists.

This list needs serious reconsideration. Amen brother, what a joke. Just relying on what they read. Yeah saw him live at an Eric Clapton gig in Sheffield plays a fiddle violin not sure if there is a difference. I did not rate him myself to be on the list. Clarence Gatemouth Brown…. He actually did make the list, but only for one album? He had others that could easily have been on this list as well.

Great stuff. Lots of omissions. The good thing that came out of this is the secondary list from these comments so we may all discover some hidden treasures that we may have never known about! So thanks again!

Your additions of sited omissions sir are excellent sited examples. The poled list of artists and top albums highly skews the reality of affection adios and professionals as well as the generational listeners would not even say this list poled by this site is even near accurate.

I think about 30 of these should have been left off and something else put in. Somebody just went through his own collection. One album that I love that past me by for many years is Otis spans — the biggest thing since colossus. Peter greens playing on it sublime. He steps in and out of the shadows as Otis leads the band. Both players enjoying the company they were keeping. Greens playing is perfect… Sublime ferocious subtle but most of all perfectly suited to each song. Peter Green.

Mick Taylor. John McVie. Mick Fleetwood. Aynsley Dunbar. Keith Hartley. Jack Bruce. Larry Taylor. He has every right to a place on this list. So true. I agree Brendan…. John Mayall earns a place on my list because he appreciates the blues, he shepherded several artists like Clapton during their careers and for his contribution to the music!

Joe Bonamassa — Sloe Gin. Pretty decent list. Although there will always be missing someting. Speaking of full, I miss Blind Boy Fuller. But I am glad Big Bill Broonzy made the list. In that respect it is a great success so well done!

Kings Fine list anyway! At least Kooper and Bloomfield were included on another pick. Finally, someone mentioned ray Charles, thought I was the only one!

Fats domino too. Love seeing a list like this and watch people speak of their favorites and how could they miss….!? De Sapio on October 30, Sinatra received three Honorary Degrees during his lifetime. It was at this commencement that he was bestowed an Honorary Doctorate litterarum humanarum by the university. He went on to describe that "this is the first educational degree I have ever held in my hand. I will never forget what you have done for me today".

Sinatra has been portrayed on numerous occasions in film and television. Sinatra was convinced that Johnny Fontane, a mob-associated singer in Mario Puzo 's novel The Godfatherwas based on his life. Puzo wrote in that when the author and singer met in Chasen'sSinatra "started to shout abuse", calling Puzo a "pimp" and threatening physical violence. Francis Ford Coppoladirector of the film adaptationsaid in the audio commentary that "Obviously Johnny Fontane was inspired by a kind of Frank Sinatra character".

Dolly and Marty ran a tavern during those years, allowed to operate openly by local officials who refused to enforce the law. Dolly said of it, "My son is like me.

You cross him, he never forgets. Mane wrote "Frank Sinatra" on the record label and kept the recording in a drawer through the years, giving Sinatra a copy on a cassette tape as a gift in Mane died inonly months after Sinatra's death; inMane's widow offered the recording for sale through Gurnsey's auction house in New York. James actually knew Ray Sinatra, so he did not press the issue. In one incident witnessed by Stafford backstage at the Astor Hotel in New York, Rich called Sinatra a name and Sinatra threw a heavy glass pitcher filled with water and ice at Rich's head.

In the open field, you might say, were some awfully good singers with the orchestras. Bob Eberly with Jimmy Dorsey was a fabulous vocalist. Como with Ted Weems is such a wonderful singer. I thought, if I don't make a move out of this and try to do it on my own soon, one of those guys will do it, and I'll have to fight all three of them to get a position".

Joseph Ross in Los Angeles in August Kelley says that his articles grew so offensive that Sinatra pounced on him outside Ciro's and punched him behind the left ear in response to an insult in which he was called a "dago". Sinatra was taken to court, and according to Kelley, Mortimer received Mafia threats to drop the case or lose his life.

Miller thought he would try this novelty approach for Sinatra because he felt the singer's "great records" weren't selling. His friend, Jimmy Van Heusen, convinced him that the song would be a success. Their feud grew worse when Melcher suggested that Day sing "Young at Heart" as the film's title song when Sinatra's recording of the song was already a hit. Day conceded that she did not care whose voice was heard singing the film's title song.

Because of the rift, the Young at Heart soundtrack album contains all the songs heard in the film but the title Young at Heart. Sinatra's hit recording is heard at the beginning and end of the film. She says that though he was not formally banned from the country, the bureaucrat "made it seem so" and stated that the situation caused much humiliation to the family.

Witnesses to the incident said the two men both made threats, with Waterman producing a gun and pointing it at Sinatra. Sinatra walked out of the casino and returned to his Palm Springs home without fulfilling the rest of his three-week engagement there. Waterman was booked on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, but was released without bail. Refusing to make "two pictures for the price of one", he left the production and did not return. Fox initially sued Sinatra for a million dollars for breach of contract and replaced him with Gordon MacRae.

Fox agreed to drop the claim on condition that he appear in another picture of theirs. Sponsored by American Tobacco Company's Lucky Strike brand of cigarettes, the show featured the top ten songs of each week. He often started shouting about this on the set of the television show when he phoned his home and could not reach Gardner.

Mansfield had to communicate with Sinatra through the entourage that always accompanied him to CBS. Sinatra was always late to work and did not care to spend any time at rehearsal; he blamed all those connected with the program for the poor ratings it received. Mansfield was at his wits' end with Sinatra and his television show and quit the program.

Mansfield informed him that he was man of great talent but a failure as a person, which led to Sinatra attempting to angrily fire him. Mansfield replied that he was too late, as LP) had resigned that morning. After Della Penta attempted to tear off Barbato's dress, LP) ordered Barbato away and told Della Pinta that he would marry Barbato, several years his junior, because she was pregnant.

Della Penta went to the police, and Sinatra was arrested on a morals charge for seduction. Go home and take a bath You're nothing but a two-dollar cunt. You know what that means, don't you? You've been laying down for two dollars all your life". According to Rojek, Sinatra then proceeded to place two-dollar bills in her wine glass and remarked, "Here's two dollars, baby, that's what you're used to".

The two men never spoke again. Kennedywas intensifying his own investigations into organized crime figures such as Chicago mob boss Sam Giancana, who had earlier stayed at Sinatra's home. Kennedy was strongly advised by Henry Petersena senior official of the Justice Department, to avoid staying with Sinatra. Evening Standard.
