Ray Charles,Freddie King and Jimmy Reed are some of the best in my mind. Putumayo’s African Blues would be a nice touch to my music.

What a fantastic opportunity to win six of these fabulous CD's!! I will share them with my friends, this Putumayo music is so rich and wonderful that I think many people in Wyoming have not heard about it. This would be a good opportunity for me to share this music.. I am from Santa Fe,New Mexico, so I am a long time listener!! Thank you very much for the chance to win such a marvelous set of CD's Paw

Janis Joplin was the heart and soul of blues - saw John Lee Hooker in a Redwood City, CA bar along with another cool young blues guy - Mr. Mark Ford.

Putumayo's CD's are always full of top notch artists in their perspective genres gathered in one place! Being a music lover of all genres, they are the best in my book! I especially love it though when I come across a "new to me" artist. Thanks Whole Foods and Putumayo!

Blues is the type of music we figure skate to sometimes. I first was exposed to blues music before I even started school and know my son enjoys listening to it also.

Blues music is alive and well here in the Gulf Coast region of Texas. We are lucky to have a thriving Blues scene with musicians in their 90's performing regularly. I would recommend the book "Down in Houston" by Roger Wood to every lover of Blues music history.

I have great friends who are introducing me to different artists/types of music. We are going to see a band - The Gravel Project - this month that incorporates blues into their sound. It would be great to have these CDs and continue my music introduction/education. :)

I really enjoy listening to some of the other Putumayo collections- world reggae, Afro-Portuguese, Women of Africa, to name a few. I'm also starting to listen to live local blues, and would love to hear some African blues.
