Agree on WWW. Saw him nearly 20 years ago in Detroit (Moby Dick's?). I like his "Out of the Dark" and "Sada" albums best. "You Can Stay But That Noise Must Go" is my favorite track of all.

Sure thing, are you familiar with Doyle Bramhall ii? If not, check out the album "Rich Man". His roots are deep in the blues but this album really stretches the boundaries and brings in many other influences. There are so many beautiful sounds and textures that blend perfectly with his distinctive voice. He also has a newer release called "Shades" which is also very good but Rich Man has a few tracks that are absolutely stellar.
@david_ten,Yes, love DB ii, so glad he is limiting his projects as a side-man and focusing more on his solo career. Saw him at a local club a couple years back when he was out supporting Rich Man....great show and he seemed to be a genuinely nice and humble guy. Bobby Rush is recent discovery for me. Been a fan of blues music for years and heard him of course but just tracks here and there and for some reason he never stuck on my radar. Am amazed at the consistent quality of songs and the surprisingly good quality of the recordings. Down in Louisiana is another good one as is Porcupine Meat. There is a track on PM called "Night Time Gardener" which is what connected me to him a few months back. Can’t wait to get through the rest of his catalog....amazed he is still turning out this great material at 85....would love to see him live....perhaps a road trip is in order, his music makes me smile:)
