Classic Blues - A Video Collection


I've been a fan of the Delta Blues for decades now, since I first discovered Robert Johnson back in college (Eric Clapton had named him the best guitarist ever). I immediately bought the box set of Robert Johnson's Complete Recordings, and not later bought a box set of Lighting Hopkins.

This morning, 3 Quarks posted a Willie Dixon video, which led me to create a playlist of classic blues, featuring Dixon, Robert Johnson, Lightning Hopkins, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, and a bunch of others, including full concerts/collections from Muddy Waters and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Enjoy - there is 7.5 hours of music here.
