I can see why Charlie Patton - a showman in the same vein as T-Bone Walker it seems - and Blind Lemon Jefferson are missing. You have to be a dedicated blues lover to dust those old records off. But I'm a mite surprised to see nowt by Muddy Waters on your list. I have the three box Chess set, and it's a treasure trove.

And what about the ladies?

Those you mention have great songs, but not not so great 'albums' imho. I've got another blues tracks list going - in fact I got a few, it's quite fun ;)

Definitely blues influenced.

Serindipity, just the other day I was thinking, "What would be the one BB King CD to buy?"

Now I know.

Good choices Justin. I think I actually have all of them. I think you could toss Roy Buchanan - Livestock in there.

Love the lesson number ... did you go down to the crossroads to get that one?

Great selection Justin. I wouldn't know where to start with a top 10 list.

RE-666 was this just a coincident or did Robert Johnson help you pick the number.  ;)

BTW, for BB King I really do recommend the first Live together with Bobby Bland. For anyone who hasn't heard Bobby sing, it's a wonderful intro to the man's work, and BB King is really enjoying himself. Is here : http://open.spotify.com/album/7f07pg0q4Pty7mqH05zbam

Great list. But why a top ten and not a top 12?

I loved the jazz album recommendations. That turned me on to Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins. Blues guitar albums I can think of:

Albert Collins - Ice Pickin'

Maybe a Robert Cray album?

Derek and the Dominos - Layla

Clapton's Unplugged album

Something from the Allman Brothers Band, maybe At Filmore East

to all of you blues lovers - you gotta check this album out!

JIMI HENDRIX - BLUES (1994)

this represents everything jimi hendrix is about (to me)

especially his version of "born under a bad sign" - it's like the holy grail. seriously :)

i hope you got good headphones or some serious hi-fi.. ;)
