Does musikchan like the blues? What are some good albums to check out?

 No.31489

Yeah, I like some blues

The Complete Robert Johnson
Anything by Robert Pete Williams
Skip James - Today!
Mississippi John Hurt - Today!
Taj Mahal - Mo' Roots
Rising Sons - S/T
James Booker - Resurrection of the Bayou Maharajah
Nick Gravenites - My Labors (there's probably some good Janis Joplin that sounds just like this, but I don't know which album's best)

Blind Willie Johnson is more gospel, but also pretty great

all very highly recommended

What are the recordings of these like?

My only issue with the blues is it often sounds so shit.

I rarely am annoyed by recording quality so I often don't notice it much either. Both albums called Today, Mo Roots and Rising Sons, and My Labors are all well recorded though iirc, some RPW is too

Alrighty then, must have just been a really shitty quality Robert Johnson recording I had then.

Hard to get Robert Johnson recordings in high quality from that decade, they didn't even have FLAC desu

 No.31978

No love for Chicago Blues, like Junior Wells or Taj Mahal?

 No.32009

Not an album but I'll share one of my favorite blues songs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=626pNZB8xXE

Written by Jimmy Cox in the 1920's, then recorded by Scrapper Blackwell circa ~1960. Something about this just sounds ahead of its time to me. I can't put my finger on what, maybe that it's very accessible?

 No.32012

my favourite blues album has to be
Skip James - Greatest Of The Delta Blues Singers

 No.32037

Chicago blues is good. The blues clubs in Chicago are still pretty fun too. I've got to say though, I'm not sure how to define Chicago blues other than that it's electric and from Chicago
