Love Taj Mahal and the Blind Boys of Alabama -- technically gospel, but blues to me!

Music is my life! Were it not for music, I'd be (more of) a nutcase.....{:> Putamayo has long been a favorite label. Their "Mali to Memphis" is outstanding! I don't know how they do it, but they find the most wonderful (& sometimes unusual) music and fuse them together beautifully & seamlessly. It would be an honor to add this set to my collection. Know music, know life. No music, No life

I love Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, who have a blue grass feel with blues/jazz undertones. Also, I'm a fan of the Putumayo series, especially the Women of the World and the Americana CDs.

I love blues and my favorite artists are the oldies: Ruth Brown and Joe Williams. I would love to get acquainted with the Putamayo selections.

Like the blues? How about Bonnie Raitt's new album-Bonnie's slide, Bill Frisells magic guitar, Greg Lietz' genius instrumental and all playing Bob from Time Out of Mind-Blues.

There are so many kinds of blues. For New Orleans style blues I really like Professor Longhair.

I enjoy all types of Blues ... some favs are Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, old school such as Billie Holiday, Muddy Waters and then local blues artists like Trampled Under Foot. Would be fantastic to add some world blues to my collection.

I have to give a shout-out to some of the Ladies of the Blues: Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Hattie McDaniel, Ethel Waters, and Betty Wright They could even make a heartbreak sound good.

The first group that got me really liking the Blues was The Fat City Band from Boston. They performed on a Cruise Ship that went out from there. I have to say that the room was filled during all performances! I'm sure the performers on these CD's are just as talented and look forward to finding out!

I don't know . . . maybe being born in Chicago, I was born with the blues. Best experience ever was as a young girl watching the late great Muddy Waters perform live at Navy Pier. He was the "Hoochie Coochie Man"!
