The 100 Greatest Blues Albums

The 100 Greatest Blues Albums

We’ve set ourselves another, almost, impossible challenge. This time it’s to come up with a definitive list of the 100 Greatest Blues Albums…ever. As usual we haven’t just dreamed up this list, we have trawled the net, looked through numerous magazines and books to try to get a consensus as to what the 100 should be.
Well, have we succeeded? We are surprised by the breadth of the blues, as well as the sheer number of different blues styles that are represented here. There’s the jazz end of the blues, the folk-blues, blues rock, straight forward, honest to goodness, down home blues, Chicago Blues, British Blues, Country Blues as well as White men playing the Blues
Most fans of the blues recognise that it is something that is as often as not best played live and there are some cracking ‘in concert’ performances. There’s Lightnin’ Hopkins, Cream, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, The Allman Brothers, Jimmy Reed along with Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper, which gives you an idea of the scope of this list.
There are albums that everyone acknowledges as master works – Robert Johnson’s King of The Delta Blues Singers, Junior Wells’s Hoodoo Man Blues, Albert King’s Born Under a Bad Sign and Magic Sam’s West Side Soul. Then there’s some albums that you may not know, like Blind Mississippi Morris’s Back Porch Blues, Koerner, Ray & Glover‘s, Blues, Rags and Hollers and Tampa Red’s Don’t Tampa With the Blues; they are all equally worthy of inclusion.
We have given you the list alphabetically, having given up trying to do 100 down to #1. Suffice to say, every album here should be in any discerning Blues fan’s collection. How many do you have? And just as importantly, what have we missed?
