Doctor John which Blues CD (24) RE: which Blues CD 12 Jul 00

Mississipi John Hurt and Lead Belly are songsters rather than pure bluesmen but I'm sure you'll find their music wonderful. For the raw stuff try Blind Lemon Jefferson. I'd certainly go along with Blind Blake and Blind Willie McTell. Try Furry Lewis too. McGhee and Terry and Broonzy are excellent but I heard a lot of them in my younger days. Lonnie Johnson is a very smooth performer who crossed many boundaries. I really like the exciting work of Blind Boy Fuller especially that with Sonny Terry. A good CD was "Bluesville" (ACE CDCH247) but may not be available now. Dr John
