Six blues rock tunes for June! All have links in Spotify for you to take a listen!!!
Joe Bonamassa – Sloe Gin
Title cut of his 2007 album and the song that elevated Joe Bonamassa from simply a great blues rocker to one of the most talented singers, songwriters, and guitarists of his generation.
Beth Hart – Am I the One
She burst onto the blues rock scene in 1996 with entrancing live performances that reminded many of Janis Joplin. From her first album, Immortal, this song represents her at her soul baring finest.
Alvin Lee – Bluest Blues
One of the finest guitarists to ever pick up the instrument, British rocker and blues man Alvin Lee had a career that spanned over 45 years. He graced the stage at the Woodstock festival in 1969 and as the years passed by put out some fine blues tunes including this classic song. Alvin passed away in 2013.
Albert Cummings – Hoochie Coochie Man/Dixie Chicken Medley
A custom home builder by day and fantastic blues man by night, Albert Cummings gives an invigorated live performance of the Muddy Waters and Little Feat tunes on this cut….incredible!
Gary Moore – Parisienne Walkway
Irishman Gary Moore started off in the seventies as a member of Thin Lizzy. He drifted in and out of the band as the years went by and by the nineties was a full fledged blues rocker drawing huge audiences where ever he played. He originally recorded this song in the late seventies but released a live version in 1993 that took the blues world by storm. Gary passed away in 2011.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd – Deja Voodoo
Inspired by meeting and seeing Stevie Ray Vaughan perform at the age of 7, this native of Shreveport, Louisiana released his first album, Ledbetter Heights, in 1995 at the age of eighteen. It included this blue rock gem that shot the album to #1. In the years since, Kenny Wayne has become one of the most recognized blues rock performers on the planet. And his latest album, The Traveler, is simply fantastic also!
