There's a wonderful album with BB King and Diane Schuur called "Heart to Heart". I love it. It's blues/jazz.

Also, BB King recorded some neat stuff with Bonnie Raitt.

I have their versions of, "Baby, I Love You" and "Right Place, Wrong Time".

I'll gladly e-mail them to you if you like.

Oops, but not in a "file-sharing" sense.

Just for you to listen to and then delete.

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

Check out the guitarist "Ry Cooder" for haunting blues. If you are interested in hearing where Angus got his raw bluesy sounds, listen to Dick Dale, "Front Porch Blues". If you are interested in how the blues came to be, one of the earliest recorded blues was by a man known as Robert Johnson. If you fed Robert Johnson some amphetamines and put him on steroids, you'd have Angus. That 3-chord blues progression has travelled time quite well. Little Milton's "The Blues Is Alright" is a great blues song. Muddy Waters "Nine Below Zero" is far too cool not to listen to, as well as "Mannish Boy" . I'd suggest John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom", as well as Howlin' Wolf's "Little Red Rooster". Also from Robert Johnson, "Dust My Broom" is really good. Blues is something I have been listening to for a long long time. I am no expert, but I know what I like.

Ken.
