I've been a fan of the blues for many years.I own many vinyl lp's marking a large span of blues history.The blues is found in many types of music and many musicians had their own roots with the blues.I remember listening to Eric Clapton and Cream playing Politician and I'm So Glad when I was a teenager.John Mayall and Peter Green breeding the British blues movement.The original Fleetwood Mac were great blues players as well.

Lyrics To Some Blues Classics

Crossroads

Statesboro Blues

Red House

The blues have a large part in music history.Recordings of the very early folk acoustic blues of Robert Johnson's Crossroads.Gospel blues and rhythm and blues as seen on the Chess label.Nick Gravenites once said being treated black was the closest thing to the blues he will ever feel.The periods of prejudice,hatred,and just plain hard times,led to music that planted it's roots still heard in the music of today.
