    Albert King's live version of Stormy Monday. Damn!

    Albert King was the originator of record of this tune. These covers pay tribute to the original, as they should, but add a flavor all their own.

    I'll Play The Blues For You (10/28/13 link repaired)

    Big Head Todd and The Monsters (3/29/17 I listen to this regularly. More than five years later this is one of the best versions I have ever heard.)

    I'll Play the Blues For You


    There are many traveling "bar bands" that have exceptional talent. Here's one that does this tune with the emotion and intensity it deserves.

    The David Gerald Band

    I'll Play The Blues For You


    Karen Carroll's great version used to be here but was made "private." Bummer. Try this.

    Stormy Monday (posted on Monday otherwise I would be irresponsible).

    Midnight Blues


    Things are grim. Need this more than ever.

    Kenny Neal

    Blues Fallin' Down Like Rain


    Research was necessary here. I am essentially confident that this is not as listed (Nortons play different music) however...

    5/25/17 ...continued research has uncovered the "truth." (I think) There are two bands using the name, The Nortons. One does not play blues and has different personnel. The other one fronted by this great singer is also known locally as The Nortons. This is a live version of that great tune with...

    Danielle Schnebelen

    Danielle Schnebelen deserves another with the Kenny Wayne Shepard Band.


    This is so mellow, so smooth, and oh, so sweet.

    Sonny Black

    There are many great harp players around now. One of the best is Sugar Blue, who played on the Stones "Miss You".

    In Your Eyes



    When The Blues Catch Up With You


    Billy Branch with Lurrie Bell & The Sons Of The Blues (this tune demands stellar blues harp mastery; this version exceeds the standard)
