Cream, Hendrix, ABB, Zep etc brought the blues to a new generation of fans with there rocking style of blues. I enjoy listening to these bands but I think I want to hear some under appreciated bands from that era who you feel should be heard by a student of the blues.

Kind of "Brit-centric" but here are a few

Fleetwood Mac - the Peter Green era...English Rose, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Blues Jam At Chess, & Then Play On...British blues doesn't get much better than that!!!

Savoy Brown - (especially the Dave Walker era...Street Corner Talking, Lion's Share, or the Hellbound Train albums)

Climax (Chicago) Blues Band - their early days, when they still had "Chicago" as part of their name...prior to their disco hit of '76 "Couldn't Get It Right". FM Live or Tightly Knit album titles come to mind.

The Groundhogs - Blues Obituary, Thank Christ For The Bomb, Who Will Save The World?

(and let's hear it from the Rory fans)

Taste - On The Boards, Live At The Isle Of Wight

The REAL Fleetwood Mac.

Although a bit later than that particular era, Roy Buchanan is VERY underrated in my book.

And today, Davy Knowles Back Door Slam is very much a throwback to that awesomeness.

I would definitely agree with Savoy Brown, and like Dave Walker, but strongly prefer the earlier era with Chris Youlden-Raw Sienna is my favorite.

Chris Youlden is the best singer they ever had (IMHO)

Anyone else heard of these guys? Don't know much of anything about them, except that they opened for Led Zeppelin at some point, and this record is pretty damn good:



My dad has a copy of this on vinyl, and I picked up a digital copy a few years back.
