Fit to Serve by AJ Croce. Not someone I would have immedietly associated with the blues but those wot know better do and this is pretty good

Well as with a quite a few blues acts, someone who can sing but sure 'aint no vovalist. Fortunately he mainly lets guitar do the singing for him Kenny Wayne Shepherd Live! In Chicago

Mary Jo by The Four Blazes.

This shows what happens when folk do their job properly. Recorded in the early fifties yet has better sound quality than many modern recordings

One of his best, I'm on Stefan GrossmanFriends Forever Guitar Collaborations, obviously not just him or the title wouldn't work.

Cheers, have Good Stuff, Home to me & Friends if any of these are missing from you collection,
Mate was round so played him the Jeremy Lyons disc and the latest Imelda May on the blues front of things.

it has become de-rigeur to mockingly sneer & deride this man. Nothing but blues snobbery IMO so when a cheap price came up on Man From Another Time from the oceanically challenged one I jumped at it sound unheard.
Have to concede that this is tired, cliched stuff issued out of blatant commercialism and fully earns every sneer he's ever been given but don't let that put you off trying his other stuff

Kansas City Shout
Count Basie, with Joe Turner, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson... Not pure blues (it's also jazz),
but it's fine blues (and fine jazz) IMHO

Well I revisited Bobby rushLovin' a Big Fat Woman and it is quite a nice piece of blues soul with a dash of funk. Won't set your world on fire but is a nice mellow tasteful album that will leave you feeling all cuddy and warm

Rory gallagherThe Beat Club Sessions. This is a real corker even by this guy's standards.

Live At The Blue Cat Blues Club Jim Suhler.
First - knowingly - came across this guy live so it's nice to have got a live recording.

Like many blues guys, he makes himself approachable and told me he regularly plays with george Thourougood (when the hell dowes he find time) which i probably would have known if I ever got around to readin the liner notes on albums.

Love Jim Suhler Peter but most of his stuff is out of print. Tijuana Bible is his most recent and is a quality blues rock treat. Starvation Box: the Best of Jim Suhler and Monkey Beat is an excellent round-up best of his earlier work but comes with a price tag.

Georgia Warhorse - JJ Grey & Mofro, not exactly pure blues but he brews a rich swampy stew of blues, funk and rock, not unlike Free in places.

In reply to an earlier post on 13 Feb 2011, 18:00:51 GMT
Blimey MY that Starvation Box has reached dome price tag. Wonder what I'd get for a signed copy. Bet you he has his own site where you can get it cheaper or perhaps thre CD Baby site, Woth a look if you want a copy.

Whart does constiturte pure blues? The purist get righ on my upper anatomy to be honest. Blues is a big(gish) church and JJ Grey & Mofro (or Mofro, as he is always a member I'm never quite sure where the difference lies) defo fall into the net

Excello output was just magic but best were the Jay Miller recordings for them.

Not been spending enough time with the blues recrntly but was giving The Hoax, Humdinger a balzt yesterday ans it was sounding better than ever and also Richland Woman Blues, not one of her best IMO but some nice little numbers on it all the same.
