Thread Name: The Essential Blues Recordings
Subject: RE: The Essential Blues Recordings
I have a hard time getting to any of my vinyl so little by little I'm picking up CDs to replace them--Son House, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, etc. I wish I had my Lignthin' LP's on CD, along with my Hooker, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, Bobby Blue Bland, Mississippi John Hurt, B.B. King. Only recently having discovered that blues harp is a more natural instrument for me than banjo or guitar, I wish I had Little Walter, Seigal-Schwall, Norton Buffalo (I recently posted a mostly ignored thread on two recent purchases--Corky Seigal's "Chamber Blues"--not exactly down and dirty, but Seigal's harmonica playing is wondrous, indeed, and I love some of the fusion types of things: blues/classical, trad/classical, bluegrass/jazz).

I think I've mentioned before that I am not a purist...
