Default First blues album

My first blues album (it was an actual album) was Led Zeppelin I. That was about 40 years ago. I didn't realaize back then how it was a heavy blues album. Just thought it was rock. It still blows me away.

Started with this one and then bought two more by him ("Howlin' Wolf", and "The Real Folk Blues") all on vinyl.

Still have all three of them in my collection.


Howlin' Wolf - Moanin' in the Moonlight (1958)

"Riding with the King" by B.B. King and Eric Clapton is the first ever blues album i bought. Now i have a collection of blues album, 'TajMo' and 'cry No More' are my personal favorite.

The Blue Brothers was my first blues record. Kind of embarrassed by that but hey, in my defence, I was in elementary school when I bought it. =-)

Not sure there's a simple answer to that, Mindfulness. There are different types of blues, so perhaps you should start by asking what kind of sound appeals to you. Here are five approximate categories/answers:-

1. authentic, traditional, acoustic: the gentle Elizabeth Cotton (https://www.musicbanter.com/country-...th-cotten.html ) or the harsher sound of Son House



2. early electric: Psy-Fi's excellent rec of Moanin' in the Moonlight above

3. dirty driving elec blues: R.L. Burnside:-



4. blues that's been tidied up for a more pop/rock market: Texas Flood by Stevie Ray Vaughan, which is one of the most mentioned albums in this thread: clearly a starting point for many people. The Brit alternative might be Fleetwood Mac's Greatest Hits ( as per my post #24)

5. Extended blues jams: You'll need a couple of hours for Paul Butterfield Live at the Troubador , so here's just a taster:-



This list includes some of my favourites, and somehow fails to mention the whole Muddy Waters/ BB King /Eric Clapton school of blues, which, to my embarrassment, I don't know much about. For me, they are flawed by having a guitar sound that is too "plinky" and is not sad enough for the blues, but that's just me.

I like Eric Clapton but I might check out if there is any Stevie Ray Vaughan too since you mentioned him. I know a lot of people that like his music because I've heard of him. I fear that im going to be listening to hiphop ass i get older thanks for the information Lisnaholic, Ive heard of Muddy Waters and BB King, ill explore them too
