Best Blues on CD/SACD?

Want recommendations for blues recordings on CD/SACD.

Thank's Tomer

Muddy Waters - Folk Singer on SACD is well worth spinning.

Blues & Grass - Chesky on SACD is superb.

Have Fun!
Albert King/SRV In Session

I'm not a "blues" fan, though I do like "bluesy-tinged" music, if you know what I mean. If you can find it, pick up Suzanne Rhatigan's "To Hell with Love" (1992, Imago, 72787-21007-2; incredible CD).

I did want to add, though perhaps no one will agree with me, that I'm a bit disappointed in the quality of the SACDs I've purchased to date (27 since June '05). The ONLY one that truly impresses me is the Rachel Podger "La Stravaganza," though I think the "Gaucho" SACD, Norah Jones's "Come Away with Me," Claire Martin's "Too Darn Hot," the Peter Gabriel SACDs, Andreas Scholl's "Stabat Mater," and Pizarro's "F Chopin" were worth purchasing.

The rest of them leave me cold, to put it mildly. I rarely play them (fortunately, I've got a bunch of CDs). Too, I find myself less than impressed by the titles that have been offered in SACD to date. Beyond that, about 20% of the cases were cracked when I received my orders or simply tend to break when I look at them or reach for them. A bit of hyperbole, but not much.
Try Melvin Taylor and the Slack Band. Anything of his.

Lets see, where do I begin.
1) On the AVI label Slim Harpo- Hip Shakin, Lightin Slim-
I'm evil, and all other AVI releases of Excello material.
2) Louisinana Blues on Arhoolie, Various Artists.
3) Blues Union by Joe Beard & R. Earl on Audioquest.
4) Luther Allison on various labels.
5) Tinsley Ellis on Allagator.
6) Just get the Fleetwood Mac Box set, SRV Box set,Savoy Brown Box set, and the Allagator anniversary double Cd sets.
7) Someone who I just saw, Bryan Lee, Absolutely smokin !
any and all by this excellent guitarist.
This should get you started.
Any of the Mighty Sam McClain's on the Audioquest label.
Speaking of Melvin Taylor, who is great. I recently had the pleasure of seeing him live at "Rosa's", a Chicago blues joint on Armitrage. Only about 20 people in the place on a Tuesday evening. He usually plays every Tuesday and also on a lot of weekends there. He and his band were a power trio the night I saw them. Absolutely great, and a rare chance to see one of the premier blues, or any style, guitarists alive today in a very small intimate, great setting. What are you waiting for. Also, decent selection of "good" beer to dring while your there.
Muddy Waters "Folksinger" absolute classic

Jorma Kaukonen "Blue Country Heart" DSD recording country blues

Junior Wells "Come on In To My House" his best since Hoodoo Man

Allman Brothers Band "Live at Fillmore East" and "Eat A Peach" okay so it isn't all blues but what blues there is are great

Jimmy Reed "At Carnegie Hall" a studio recreation of a live concert but absolutely great stuff for classic blues

Stevie Ray Vaughn "Texas Flood" and "Couldn't Stand The Weather" enough said

George Thorogood and the Destroyers first album - most people don't seem to know that this reissue is a hybrid SACD.
How could I forget Albert King "I'll Play The Blues For You" - shame on me
Hey Wildoats,
I think I was at that show. I was sitting at the corner table stage left (right if you're looking at the stage) and I was there with my friend and his girlfriend, who is unbelievably hot. Melvin solo'd in front of her twice, and was totally hitting on her between sets. My friend kept telling Melvin "I'm RIGHT HERE, didn't you notice? That's MY girlfriend you've been hitting on all night long!" He kept right on hitting. It was hilarious. He's an amazing guitar player. I wish some of his stuff was on SACD.
I second the suggestion to get "Folk Singer" by Muddy Waters. It's a must-have. Also, I'd recommend "David Johansen and the Harry Smiths" on Chesky. He plays a lot of Blues and old-time American standards. It's a FANTANSTIC SACD. Chesk it out.
