  • The Best Blues Song Ever Thread

    I submit Johnny Winter and Dr. John. I wanted "Life is Hard," but "Love, Life and Money" from the same session is close. Close enough.

      Okay, Robert Johnson - what was I thinking? Yep, there it is. There's no way to say what is/was best.

      Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee were mighty good, too. And from all that I've read, they didn't even get along. They'd get into fist fights with each other and then go onto the stage. Sonny was blind. How could he stand a chance in a fist fight? But he tried.

      Dang, they were good. This is a weak example, a very old one. The coolest thing was Sonny blowing and singing at the same time.

          I don't think there's a "best" blues song, there's way too many to choose from!
          Here's one I like a lot...





          I can't forget Roy Buchanan, one of my favorite guitarists!!! I get chills every time I listen to Roy




          Oh, & of course Rory Gallagher!!! Rory shreds!

            I'd say Muddy Waters doing "Mannish Boy" has got be a Top 5 blues tune.
            Albert Collins, John Lee Hooker, and B.B. King have all done tunes that could get this rating.
            Then again, Gatemouth Brown and Hound Dog Taylor are in the thick of it.

                I have to agree that there's no one greatest blues tune. Here's a guy I've mentioned on here before that no one has ever heard of. It's the late, great Randy Garibay from San Antonio, TX. I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with him at a gig and he was simply a great guy.

                Let's see if I can embed a Youtube vid.....

                      Ohhh Dan, that is SO Cool! Heck, when I played in a three-piece band, we could rarely get two of us to show up for practice at the same time.

                      Man, that's cool. So many good musicians havig at it. Whatta jam! Wow, that's just too cool!

                          Way to many to pick from...ill just throw out Junior Wells Think I'm Better off with the Blues. But how can you go wrong with BB King The Thrill is Gone. Or what about Good Morning Little Schoolgirl by anybody...probably 20 versions of that....I like Jonny Langs and the Yardbirds

                            Wow.... There are just too many great blues songs from yesterday and today. Lest ye think the best blues are from years gone by, take a peek at this group. A young bunch out of Kansas City, this band absolutely tore down the house at the 2009 International Blues Challenge. The lead singer, Danielle, has the best set of pipes I have heard in a long, long time. Let me know what you think. It is my pleasure to introduce to you, Trampled Under Foot:

                            It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

                              Truly, the best blues song may still be out there waiting to be discovered. There are a LOT of new artists out there who are so talented. Check out this guy. Outside of the blues sect, he is relatively unknown as you just won't here him on mainstream radio. This is Tab Benoit performing Shining Moon:
