Top 15 Blues cds for 2007

I have been reading a lot of other bloggers' "Best of 2007" lists, and it got me thinking about my Top Blues cds of the year. There have been some great blues cds released in 2007. The first thing I did was junk the idea of a Top Ten. There were just too many good cds to limit it to that. These are the cds I keep listening to.

1. Mavis Staples "We'll Never Turn Back" Anti Records

2. Albert White "Soul Of The Blues" Music Maker

3. The Insomniacs "Left Coast Blues" Delta Groove

4. Omar Kent Dykes & Jimmy Vaughan "On The Jimmy Reed Highway" Ruf

5. Muddy Waters/Johnny Winter/James Cotton "Breakin It Up, Breakin It Down" Sony

6. Nappy Brown "Long Time Coming" Blind Pig

7. John Nemeth "Magic Touch" Blind Pig

8. Gary Moore "Close As You Get" Eagle

9. JJ Grey & Mofro "Country Ghetto" Alligator

10. Sweet Suzi & the Blues Experience "Unbroken" Independent

11. Mannish Boys "Big Plans" Delta Groove

12. Buddy Flett "Mississippi Sea" Out of the Past

13. Philip Walker "Going Back Home" Delta Groove

14. Frank Goldwasser "Bluju" Delta Groove

15. Nicole Hart & the NRG Band "Live" Independent

And these were close but not quite top fifteen--The Soul of John Black, Charlie Wood & the New Memphis Underground, Bobby Rush Raw, Debbie Davies' Blues Blast, John "Juke" Logan The Chill (Re-Chilled).
