Ta for moving that.

Been checking out some of your recogmendations, Still some to check out, Loving some of it, will certainly go back for some of that.
but its not quite hitting my blues(?) button yet.
A couple of Van morrisons song were good. TB Sheets got my attention.
but my best find so far is Screaming Jay Hawkins - best of the bizarre sessions.
Anyone know of a band that their "sound" is Alice cooper's - welcome to my nightmare?

Some of The Animal's early stuff is pretty bluesy, but mebbe that's too far back! Also the extremely versatile Dave Edmunds has some serious blues in his repetoire! Don't look too deep and enjoy your music! I never quite worked out where the soul/blues and blues/rock bondaries are! :?

Have you tried Planet Rock? http://www.planetrock.com/
There's a fair bit of blues and blues influenced rock played on there, and Joe Bonnamassa (see reply above) has his own blues show....I would be pretty surprised if you didn't find something of interest on there.

It does tend to get blurred...a good example would be Janis Joplin...blues or rock?
You sick little monkey!!!! Holy crap!!!!

Thats a nice surprise... I usually dislike perfectly good music because of the sound of women lead singers. (Its nothing sexist)
But thats good, Shes got a bit of attitude behind her voice.

some cracking female vocalists out there! Nancy Wilson, Maggie Bell (Taggart theme tune!), Elkie Brookes, Jerney Kaagman just to name a few! Tend to agree with Gus re Joplin. Good songs, voice grates a bit!

Try googling "The Blues Band"
Paul Jones, a couple of ex-Manfred Mann musicians and other mates; amazing stage show - total class. 8-)
All excellent, knowledgeable blues experts who tour a couple of times a year and might even get to Aylesbury sometimes.

850 and other people have mentioned lots of great music.
B.B. King in THE MAN!
Listen to "Ghetto Woman" for genuine Chicago Blues feeling, ****ing amazing!
Albert King is no slouch either.
Robert Cray - as Gus said.
Led Zeppelin - early albums 1 and 2!

Just for fun, try to get hold of the "Woodstock" DVD lots of fun stuff, including Richie Havens,
Jefferson Airplane (now there's another female vocalist with attitude, Grace Slick!)
Ten Years After
- and the greatest performance ever by the greatest guitarist ever
Hendrix's version of "the Star Spangled Banner" which ends the movie.
No synthesisers etc. all the screams and explosions are coming from the guitar in his protest against the war in Vietnam!

Also the "Crossroads" movie guitar duel - look it up on YouTube. 5 minutes of riotous fun.

Early Stones and Animals stuff is great - until the drugs took over.
And anything by Taste or Rory Gallagher will blow your socks off!
Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!
