Already Free, Derek Trucks Band.

Live at the Fillmore East, Allman Brothers Band.

Irish Tour '74, Rory Gallagher.

Layla and other assorted love song, Derek and the Dominoes

John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers featuring Eric Clapton, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers

The Hard Road, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers

From the Cradle, Eric Clapton

The UG Blues album.


But if you want pure blues:

The Complete Recordings, Robert Johnson.

At Newport 1960, Muddy Waters.


And for something unconventional:

Electric Mud, by Muddy Waters ( I can't even believe that it's Muddy that's playing on this album )

Listen to John Lee Hooker, Otis Rush, B.B. King, and Albert King.

I also really enjoy Elmore James and Son House.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.

They play some blues numbers, and are influenced by blues, but a lot of their material isn't bluesy at all. I have all their albums, so don't try to argue that.

+1. Joe Bonamassa never seems to get the respect he deserves, in my opinion.

Howlin Wolf
Willie Dixon (I don't know if he recorded anything, but he wrote a lot of classics)
Leadbelly
Ike Turner (wrote 1st rock song, Rocket 88)

True, I think Led Zeppelin I was proably thier bluesiest album as a whole. Others include Albert King (Boprn under a bad sign album is very good, live is better though) Al;bert Collins, the great iceman! Also Hendrix onj the radio one album had a couple of really bluesy numbers, and of course the usual BB king, Clapton etc. Joe Bonamaasa is also excellent, and John Mayer is ok.

So, now , because I don't think Zep is a blues band, I must automatically hate them, and therefore, suck, kids? Calm that self-righteous teenaged rage.

They are dumb. They do not know what blues is if they consider Zep to be a blues band.

PS: This is coming from a huge Zep fan.

did anyone say you suck?

did anyone say you hated them?


no, stop being so dramatic

led zeppelin played a lot of blues tunes, I'm not claiming they are a blues band, I'm just saying they played more than you said they did.

I was pretty non-specific. I said they played some blues numbers, but a lot of their songs weren't blues at all. I certainly didn't say anything to call down the wrath of Zeus, which is how everyone reacted.
