Thank you Hammer. I've been racking my brains trying to remember someone I came acroos may years ago, failed to actually get anything by but was relatively recently reminded of his genius.
It was Keef hartly, so a timely memory jog.

Yo, Peter. Glad to be able to assist. Start with Half Breed and go from there,
would be my advice. Also the Aynsley Dunbar stuff is worth a shout. Best of
luck. (Be warned Blue Whale is not strictly blues, being altogether of a more
complex construction. Good though, if you are patient the first time around.)

If they haven't been mentioned already R L Burnside's Ass Pocket of Whiskey [Digipak] and Mr. Wizard are the dog's.

It has got to be Hound Dog Taylor. It won't matter which album.

Hound Dog Taylor-inspiration for George Thorogood.Very raw but it will bring a smile to your face.

All of the above are great! But when you talk 'dirty' blues, the album that springs to mind is 'A Ass Pocket Of Whiskey', by R.L. Burnside - guaranteed to start a fight within a few short minutes!

Johnny Bee says:
Yeah Chris. That's why I recommended it 4 postings above.

Thanks Johnny - I obviously didn't read them all! Good choice!

Still waiting to hear what the OP did with all this advice?

You guys might enjoy a little blues/boogie show that I do on a Thursday night, 8 till 10 (South African time!), at - or pick up podcasts of previous shows at - I think it's gonna right up your street!

Perhaps dirty has two meanings - Down and Dirty is traditional hard blues from the speakeasy/barrelhouse times (maybe) whilst Dirty could be rude/crude/explicit/banned - try Rude Dudes from Bill Wyman or check with Document Records.

anybody mentioned the great Howling Wolf
a voice that can strip wallpaper

also one of the great late 60s British Blues Rock Groups " Ten Years After " early LPs are Best

Mr. M. Leigh says:
howlin wolf would be the dirtyest all time, but for guitar Albert Kings live at sunrise is yet to be beaten for raw power and aggression! if any one thinks there is an album that compares let us know!

Mr. P. Giles says:
"The Genuine Article" album by Howlin' Wolf should do it

Posted on 21 Oct 2011 16:07:41 BDT
Hammerwood says:
Yes, the Genuine Article..... is just that. You could also try the Howlin Wolf 'Blues from Hell' 3 cd retrospective
or the 3 cd Muddy Waters anthology on the same label, N O T. Also BB King's Electric Blues and the Definitive
Elmore James. On the Charly Blues Masterworks series have a go at Sonny Boy William's Nine below Zero, excellent
stuff. Anything by Jimmy Reed, Buddy Guy or James Brown also highly recommended. If you want something a little
more sophisticated the late great Otis Redding was the master.... but we are now getting into Soul territory, so I will
stop mythering on at this point. Good hunting!

dirtiest british blues ever = graham bond 60s heavy blues with jazz feel : try only live CD "I met the blues at klooks kleek". don't bother with youtube clips - there just arent any that do them justice!

Posted on 23 Oct 2011 11:41:41 BDT
aretha franklin and above, jimmy reed, buddy guy, james brown, and otis rading, " alittle more sophisticated " who are you kidding. it would be extremely difficult to " get down and dirty " with any of them. more likely to send you to sleep. come on, lets stick to the blues, in all its forms but sure not, soul.

Jimmy Reed and Buddy Guy......... SOUL?? Get a life, please.
