Best Blues Music Of 2010

By December 22, 2010

Follow me on:

Charlie Musselwhite's The WellAs far as blues music goes, 2010 started out slow but gradually picked up steam by the end of the year. We've heard excellent recordings from a handful of blues veterans, the welcome return of several long-lost blues prodigies, a wonderful posthumous album, and even a couple of (relatively) new faces. Here are the Reverend's picks for the best blues albums of 2010....

The Blues Foundation added a separate "blues-rock" category to its annual Blues Music Awards last year, a welcome move that recognizes and honors the popularity and influence of the genre on contemporary blues music. If you like a little heavier guitar and a profound rock 'n' roll edge to your blues, here are the Reverend's choices for the best blues-rock recordings of 2010. As always, your comments and recommendations are welcome!
