Blind Musical Taste Test #5 - Blues

Here's a Blues track (with a bit of the Funk thrown in) from a largely forgotten album.

If you know who the artist is, please don't post it. Thanks!





Thoughts on this one?

Great track, best so far. I'd hesitate to call it "blues" though.

Also, where be #4?

I hesitated myself to call it blues as it's really a Blues/Funk/Rock hybrid, but it's by an extremely legit Blues artist off of a straightforward Blues album.

I have a copy of this album but I should buy the CD. All six songs are stellar.

Re: Blind Musical Taste Test #5 - Blues

This song just bored me. It sounds like your standard blues-rock song in the background of barroom scene in a DTV movie.

I'm not trying to be a Negative Nelly here but I haven’t cared for any of these "taste test" songs so far. Eventually you’ll get to something I'll like though.

If I haven't put anything up yet that you like then I wouldn't hold your breath. What genres do you like?

I like music from the genres you posted; I just didn't like any of the songs you posted from those genres.

I do hope you continue posting these B5Erik; I'm enjoying these quit a bit.

Same here, I love classic and hard rock, but nothing you've posted. Don't give up on us, post some more.

Not really a fan of this "heavier" kind of blues, but it's not a bad track.

Same here. This song did nothing for me.

Gotta say Howlin' Wolf is much better than the posted track. I didn't hate it, but there is better out there.

Re: Blind Musical Taste Test #5 - Blues

I like this one, though I'm not crazy about the bass line.
