Blues Song of the Day.


Recommended Posts

  • 2023 Gold Donors

I've always loved the "Blues" and realized that it doesn't have it's own "Song of the Day" thread.

I'm gonna try and post some of my favourites, from old school to "Blues Rock" and hope you guys do as well.

I'll start off with these three.

I was listening to these two Gary Moore albums today. These two albums are absolute time machines for me and I played the shit out of them back in the day.

Muddy Water Blues - Paul Rodgers

Great track and Phenomenal album.

I created a thread not too long ago with my favourites from it.

I'll re-post it here. 

Killer stuff and one of my all time favourite albums.

Paul Rodgers always had the chops. "Bad Company" is a great example of "Bluesy Hard Rock"

Their self titled single kicks arse!

I'm sure ANR and Whiplash will be the only ones into this. Back in 1993 Paul Rodgers released a tribute to Muddy Waters and enlisted some guitar players to perform. When I say "guitar players", that's probably an understatement.

Jeff Beck, Slash, Buddy Guy, Gary Moore, Richie Sambora, Trevor Rabin, Brian Setzer, Dave Gilmour, Steve Miller, Brian May and throw Jason Bonham into the mix. I was already a huge Blues fan and when I heard "I Just Want To Make Love To You" on the radio in '93 (yes radio!), I had to have the album. It's still one of my favourites, although the Richie Sambora track would definitely not wash today.

Mustang Sally.

This Killer track may be more Rythym and Blues than pure Blues, but it still qualifies. 

Back in '91, the movie "The Commitments" and the soundtrack were huge down here and obviously in the UK.

Not sure if it was popular elsewhere. 

Andrew Strong was only 18 or 19 when he recorded this and was touted as the next big thing. He's done fuck all since. 

It's a shame because he was tremendously talented.

His cover is a great homage, not as good as the original which is Epic, but it's close.

On a side note, there's been a huge influx of "Mustangs" on the road in Australia lately. 

Hopefully some are owned by chicks named Sally. There has to be at least one surely.

The Jeff Healey Band - I Think I Love You Too Much.

I really love this debut album. Jeff was huge at the time. Including a memorable role in the Legendary "Roadhouse" along side Patrick Swayze. 

 Unfortunately his life was cut tragically short.

A blind musical virtuoso. We don't see that too often but when we do it's special. Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Andrea Bocelli, etc. 

I know Blackie was blind in Texas at one stage, but that doesn't count. 

*He is also another example of someone who knows how to spell his name correctly.

The Robert Cray Band.

I haven't followed his output since the "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" album in '88 (I should), but back in the day I loved these two albums.

This shit is as smooth as silk.

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
