it was either:
Fathers and Sons - Muddy Waters
Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vauhgan
or
Riding With The King - B.B. King & Eric Clapton

From the Cradle - Eric Clapton and Spotlight on Lucille - BB King = awesome albums as well as anything from John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Memphis Slim and Tom Waits (if you consider tom waits blues)

What was your first Blues album?
My first ever BLUES record (Not Blues rock but BLUES) is probably GRAPE JAM (1968).....

www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wow/Grape_Jam

.....which is kind of a small album,not many songs but its excellent!! (I mostly have Blues Rock albums not Blues)


EDIT:

I made a mistake guys.... My first blues album was BB KING - LA midnight on cassette (I got that several months ago @ a record store)

^ Yey! Someone other than me mentions Roy Buchanan!
RB and Ten Years After were among my first blues albums, but I think this was my very first: not particularly cool to start with a Greatest Hits album, but that's how it was for me, as I transitioned from pop/rock to other genres:-

Roy Buchanan is good huh??

Might have to add him to my blues collection....... The BB KING album I have is ELECTRIC BLUES (Not just BLUES)

What exactly is the difference between BLUES and ELECTRIC BLUES??

^ Yes, I think so, Dude111. First time I heard this track from his first, self-titled album, I though, "Wow! Buying this was a mistake!" but by the end of the track, I had become a huge and instant fan. Maybe it'll do the same for you:-



His "Second Album" is a showcase of no-nonsense, guitar-driven blues. There is the occasional weak track, but get a load of the two opening tracks below. For once, the word "blistering" is not an exaggeration:-



"Blues" is the word for the whole genre. Sometimes people want to distinguish between early material, which was often one guy with an acoustic guitar and later stuff which highlights the elec guitar, plus band, so they call that "electric blues." Early acoustic stuff is also called Delta Blues because that's where it came from, while Elec Blues started a couple of decades later, in Detroit or Chicago I think.

Of course many artists do a bit of both: perhaps your BBKing album was his first try-out with an elec guitar and that's the reason for the album title. Psy-Fi would know!

I had a Gary Moore album for a short moment many many years ago. Didn't get along with it. So my return to blues and the first blues album I really liked would have to be this:

Looking forward to her 2019 album too

Ya this was his first "ELECTRIC BLUES" album.. The ones before were just BLUES and some of the earlier albums had R&B and SOUL also........

This record said it was mixed in Stereo and Quad also.... How did they do that and not lose the sound quality? (Mix it 4 ways and have the record on a standard 1 or 2 channel system)

I hope for her own sake that Joanne Shaw Taylor realises that "The day I lost my Hallo Kitty pencil case" isn't gonna cut it as a blues song.



Spoiler for lyrics:
Oh I'm lying in my bed, pull the silken sheets up tight
I got to keep my strength up, got to do a show tonight
I'll have a cup of coffee while I'm taking in the news
No need to have a shave 'cause I'm gonna sing the blues

Well, I think I'll get a massage, maybe lose a little fat
So I'll have to go downtown in my brand new Cadillac
My valet comes and dresses me, I light a big cigar
Because I like to look like Nimrod when I'm riding in my car

Can blue men sing the whites
Or are they hypocrites for singing, woo, woo, wooh?

And now it's getting near the time, I gotta make the scene
I change out my dark-grey mohair suit, pull on my dirty jeans
The band comes round to pick me up, I holler: "Hello boys
I gotta mess my hair up and gotta make some noise."

Can blue men sing the whites?
Or are they hypocrites for singing: Whooo ooo oooH

Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to do you a little number now that's been very lucky for us, from during the depression when everybody was ,,,very depressed

Maybe she really is an old black guy. Who am I to decide?
