Gary Moore with a beautiful song, 'Still Got The Blues' from the Hammersmith Odeon in 1990.

Gary Moore died in 2011 from a heart attack brought on by excessive drinking. No traces of drugs

were found in his body. I thought he was one of the greatest British blues artists.

Many people forget the blues when the sun shines.

"Please Send Me Someone To Love" - "I've Got News For You" - Ray Charles.........and try this one out - "Train Kept A Rolling" Bull Moose Jackson, and "Train Kept A Rolling" by Imelda May..........for the elders on this site, I offer - "If I Didn't Care" The Ink Spots.......does anyone remember this song by the Ohio Express? "Down At Lulu's" - buble-gum at its best.....or Tommy Roe - "Jam Up Jelly Tight" ......ok "Young Man Blues".

Out of the black and into the blues!

Hello Bubblewrap.....I had the original SJH record album at one time....and other than I Put A Spell On You....nothing else stood out at all.

That one song made it for him, and the covers were all good from what I've heard over the years. I'd like to turn you on to what I consider to be a great album...on CD and worth the price. Leslie West "Alligator"...he does a verson of I Put A Spell On You....what ya got in the bag lady (not) like itch but with a B. I never got tired of that album, very rare these days. I met Corky and Leslie a few years ago - great guy - and even shook his hand while he was on stage. The next morning we found ourselves riding on the same train together.

Do you mean Leslie West lead guitar Mountain my favourite track of theirs is Nantucket Sleighride (live version)

John Mayall with Peter Green perform Picture on the Wall. Recorded during a special studio session 5 December 1967, after Peter Green had left to form Fleetwood Mac. John Mayall has said this was his very favourite recording with Peter Green, and I hope that you enjoy it too.

'Apologize' recorded by John Lee Hooker in 1952. You'll hear a stompin sound

that keeps to the beat and this is JLH bringing his foot down onto a wooden pallet.

Wish they had remained together they were one of the most talented bands ever. Seen them loads of times pre Kirwan and post Kirwan.

I was listening to some real blues today, the President of America telling the country why the government was 'shut down'.

Not heard this before. Always liked the Stones doing blues. I still think their first two albums were their best, even though they contained covers.

Fav tracks are Love in Vain, You better move on, Pain in my Heart and the brilliant Stray Cat Blues.

I agree with the four you chose, basfordred, great recordings. I found this on the Internet that you may like.

Be aware of the titles at 11 and 18. I've not played it yet but it looks good. I found it when I was looking for #45.
