  • Blues is good.

    Blues is my first luv in music it must be said and i always go back there from time to time, but one thing which has always puzzled me is how little blues gets shouted in places like this. Yeah sure you'll get the odd flirt by way of influence and indeed electric mud oft gets a mention (name of the VV mag indeed), but to me it does seem quite noticeable by its absence.

    Simply my curiosity, please feel free to abuse me...........

      I was over-exposed as a kid.

      My dad is very open minded likes all music everything from BB King to Robert Cray.

      I was in the car with him and he was listening to some blues show on the radio that he likes but an Organ based isntrumental came on so he turned it off.

            blues was my first musical love i think, before getting to Led Zep etc, and then realising that most modern indie/rock bands were rubbish and finding out about soul, jazz, hip hop, etc

            need to get back into blues, definitely. have been listening to plenty of r'n'b which i never use to like when i was into blues (thought it too smooth or too poppy) but i wasn't hearing the good stuff, mostly just mediocre stuff done by bluesmen.

              I tend to prefer the country type like Mississippi John Hurt - its a bit more idiosyncratic. By the time you get to the Chicago stuff it often becomes a bit too formulaic for my liking. A lot of it I tend to respect more than enjoy.

                Are there any more John Mayall fans out there? I do have a soft spot for the blues, its great to play my bass too. Actualy all i can play is basic blues progressions and not that well.

                Only started gettin the blues in the last couple of years so my collection has a lot of big gaps to fill.

                      'Crawling Up a Hill' is a good one. as is the Hard Road LP IMO. don't really like the famous one (with Eric Clapton reading the Beano on the front), because i think his solos are pointless widdly crap. Peter Green was soooo much better...
                      i think the Looking Back album had some things of interest on too.

                        Looking back is pretty good and bare wires is a personal fave. Always liked the fact the he once lived in a tree house with running water, gas and electric. Rock & Roll..

                          In fact I was enjoying Screamin' Jay Hawkins Constipation Blues just the other day - pretty weak album (...What it is) but that song is hilarious and Feast Of The Mau Mau is great... but as a whole it's weaker than the debut. He made some later album I like too - the one with a new version of I Put A Spell On You, and the great Ashes! When I bought that one I listened to Ashes several times a day for about two weeks!
