They wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius 
The man say, we got all that we can use 
Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin' 
Working at the car wash blues - Jim Croce

Always did like Croce. Another one who died before his time.

Everyday (I Have the Blues), Marshall Tucker Band.  

 

Used to play it in the car when I took my three children on vacation. They've never seen the video, but you could hear them yell "Everyday!" as we rolled up the highway.

 

The video is Live, poor picture quality, black & white. But if you want a sense of what it was like to watch, we saw them twice in one weekend two years later at Saratoga Performing Arts Center. It was an 8 hour round trip, but we decided we had to go back and catch it again. An unforgetable weekend.

Mt Babe, Little Walter & His Jukes, released in 1955, it was written by Willlie Dixon and was the biggest hit of both of their careers.

Blues In The Night (my fav)

Am I Blue?

St. Louis Blues

Me and the Devil Blues (Robert Johnson Heart)

And the great Miles Davis tune which I've jammed on many times: All Blues

 

The Blues have only 12 bars that repeat, so musicians all over the world can easily jam on The Blues together! If anyone wants some free Blues sheet music, they are welcome to PM me- Gaili Schoen

If you're going to talk Bobby Blue Bland, a true blues icon can't forget "Stormy Monday"

Mule Skinner Blues. Popular when I was about 9, 1960. Still love it, after all these years.

Amen InfoSeeker, the entire album is a classic. Don't forget the late, great Duane Allman is playing slide on all those cuts.

nydm: I agree Gary Moore was a truly great blues guitar player.

          He will surely be missed.
