Recommend me some proper dirty south soul driven' blues…
I agree about Muddy. High level of production has a more modern feel. People like Robert Johnson and Skip James made great music, however the poor quality of the recordings can be off puting.Posted 4 years ago
Early Fleetwood Mac are good, as is Paul Butterfield. I am a fan of Sonny Boy Williamson and Paul Butterfield.
For some good UK punky R&B try Dr Feel good.
Tis funny, I’ve always paused for a moment for proper soul orientated deep guitar blues, but never invested time or money into enjoying it. So much so, I’ve listened to artists I can’t remember and loved them all :-/
What then, will go beyond the BB King movement and stir my soul….?
Edit: I’m at the time of life where sitting in my lounge with a neat spirit indulging in late night blues would quiet my riotous mind…Posted 4 years ago
Gettin’ back down to the country delta vibe – this is Lightning Hopkins. Do not skip the intro;
For whatever reason, I can’t embed the vid, but check out ‘Your Rolling Mill is Burning Down’.Posted 4 years agohousehusbandSubscriber
Degüello by ZZ Top is a progressive blues guitar masterclass. If you have interest in why Billy Gibbons is a rated guitarist, this it the answer.
Also, check out some early ZZ Top, the best little ole blues band in Texas!
Deguello just ordered -already have Eliminator and Afterburner!Posted 4 years agoBigJohnSubscriber
I’m not sure what soul oriented deep guitar blues means but I’ve always leaned towards the British Blues. John Mayall, Cream, etc. Buddy Guy and Jimi Hendrix were heavily influenced by it as were Prince and Frank Zappa. There should be something useful for you there.Posted 4 years ago
Since it has come up again:-
I mentioned some poor quality recordings but will post anyway. This has been covered in film and recorded more recently however I reckon this is one of the most haunting blues records I have heard[video]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv-_mzVBSF8[/video]
Martin Scorcese released a good DVD box set with a series of documentaries on the blues.Posted 4 years agostevenmenmuirSubscriber
Black Crowes have been touring with Derek Trucks etc. Check out some of their live stuff on I tunes. Also try North Mississippi Allstars. For a dirtier sound, RL Burnside. And for more soulful try Charles Bradley Cooper. Joe Bonamassa is soul less guitar twiddling.Posted 4 years ago
