Blues Rock Albums

Most rock guitarists owe their technique to playing styles that have developed directly out of the Blues.

ALBERT KING - KING OF THE BLUES GUITAR

This collection comprises all of Albert King's Stax singles plus the whole of the 'Born Under a Bad Sign' album in a single package.

KIM WILSON - TIGER MAN/THAT'S LIFE

This double CD set packages Kim's 1993 and 1994 albums, with Duke Robillard helping out and focusing on some Roadhouse Blues.

GARY MOORE - STILL GOT THE BLUES

This outstanding Blues-rock album impressed a lot of Blues legends and was a blueprint for today's guitar heroes.

WALTER TROUT - BLUES FOR THE MODERN DAZE

Walter dishes up 15 new tracks that mark a triumphant return to his Blues roots.

RONNIE EARL - BLUES GUITAR VIRTUOSO LIVE IN EUROPE

Ronnie pays his dues to some guitar greats in this superb instrumental album.

HARVEY MANDEL - BEST OF HARVEY MANDEL

Harvey's guitar style was revolutionary in the early 70s, and this collection of 15 tracks shows where Progressive Blues was heading.

RUMBLE! THE BEST OF LINK WRAY

This 20 track overview of Link's work includes all his most memorable themes, including a live version of 'Jack the Ripper', but sadly not his Apache, Shawnee and Comanche. It still has a lot of fuzz-tone madness though!

MIKE BLOOMFIELD - DON'T SAY THAT I AIN'T YOU MAN

The first five tracks have Charlie Musselwhite on harp in Mike's pre-Butterfield days and some solo recordings from the late 60s, alongside his better known work

BOBBY PARKER - BENT OUT OF SHAPE

This is a great album, with elements of funk and soul in the mix, as well as some extremely tasty Blues guitar.

ROBERT CRAY - STRONG PERSUADER

Even at this distance, it's easy to see why this won a Grammy. Robert can write a lyric, sing from his heart and ring out a sharp solo. 'Smokin' Gun!'

JIMI HENDRIX - BLUES

Jimi plays the Blues with his entire soul. Working some classic tunes, he shows what a profound Blues talent underpinned all that magnificent flash.

LESLIE WEST - MOUNTAIN

This amazing value album gives you some of Leslie's most famous songs in their original form, with that distinctive tone already in place.

ALLMAN BROTHERS - AT FILLMORE EAST

The legendary concert sounds crystal clear after Tom Dowd's digital remix, and the Allman's were absolutely smokin'!

ROBBEN FORD - BRINGING IT BACK HOME

An excellent backing unit allows Robben to express himself without having to impress anyone. He is an inspiring interpreter of these well-chosen songs, and he is in very fine voice too.

ROBIN TROWER - BRIDGE OF SIGHS

This is a great value item and a landmark album, but if you are a fan of Robin's live shows, State to State is a fantastic 24 track document from his American tours.

BILLIE PRESTON - THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION

Billy wrote some great songs and his keyboard skills were incomparable, but he had a fine, soulful voice too.

SUSAN TEDESCHI - LIVE FROM AUSTIN TX

With material ranging from Dylan & Stevie Wonder to Koko Taylor among her own material, Susan leads her excellent band through 75 minutes of great Blues-Rock.
