    Blues from all eras that stimulate and soothe.

    Lightnin' Hopkins

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

    There are songs that an artist makes his/her own. Then there are covers that sometimes exceed the original.

    Albert King was the originator of record of this tune. It is an especially emotional, gut-grabbing blues song, but that may be a bit of hyperbole since blues is all about emotional, "making you feel"' music. These covers pay tribute to the original, as they should, but add a flavor all their own.

    Albert King would like each of them, I'm sure.

    Albert King

    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


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

    As most know, 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


    In response to many requests for another Karen Carroll tune I offer the following masterpiece.

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


    Mighty Sam McCain

    When The Hurt Is Over


    This is sooo nice. Guys - ignore the photo and just listen - and read the comments.

    Snowy White

    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 very different music) but...

    Susan Tedeschi, who is a major blues/rock artist. Her husband, Derek Trucks, is also a well-known blues guitarist, formerly with the Allman Brothers band (and others.) They now perform as the Tedeschi Trucks band.

    Married To The Blues


    And, this is what they're up to now.

    Tedeschi Trucks Band

    Love Has Something Else To Say


    And Royal Albert Hall no less! (this is more than impressive, it's stunning, and another example why I consider blues some of the best music there is.)

    Tedeschi Trucks Band

    The Sky Is Crying


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

    Sonny Black

    Blues Walkin' By My Side


    What I said just above is true here too.

    Tony Joe White

    Ain't Goin' Down This Time



    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)

    Help Me


    Blue Morning

    What Kind Of Woman Is This? (If you introduce us I'll ask questions.)



    You're My Chocolate


    Devil Blues

    Come Fly With Me
