Alice  performed by John Waits
Recommended by Kaskas40 [profile]

Soulful and Bluesy with a punk edge.

Black Coffee  performed by Petula Clark  1968
Recommended by delicado [profile]

Regular visitors to this site will know I'm partial to this song and to the era of this recording. But nothing could have prepared me for the mind-blowing grooviness this Petula Clark version from 1968. It has a 'slightly too slow to dance to' funkiness, kind of like the tastiest version of 'Watermelon man' you ever heard. The arrangement has piano, bouncy drums, peppy brass, flutes, and to top it all, some beautiful strings adding some complexity to what is basically a simple bluesy composition.

Isn't it great when you come across a track and just think 'this is the best thing ever'?

The entire CD is great - 28 of Petula's grooviest tracks. I recommend it!

from The Other Man's Grass (Is Always Greener) (Pye NSPL 18211)
available on CD - Feelin' Groovy (Sanctuary)

  FlyingDutchman1971: Ah, Ms. Pet! She is one of my favorites too. I've managed to get my hands on most of her 60's catalog, including the original album this song comes from. Thanks for mentioning her! k.d. Lang also does a beautiful rendition of this great torch song on her album "Shadowland".

Bluesy guitar and piano

Cold Water  performed by Tom Waits  1999
Recommended by StAgGeR [profile]

This is a great song to listen to on days when nothing seems to be going right. In my case: when driving my blind sister around in a delapidated taxi, with broken windows, and a gas meter on empty. The best line in my opinion is: "Blind or crippled, Sharp or dull. I'm reading the Bible by a 40 watt bulb. What price freedom. Dirt is my rug.
Well I sleep like a baby with the snakes and the bugs". I love this track! Keith Richards played lead guitar and sings backing vox on this one. Their voices/styles mesh together very well. It's one of the more bluesy tracks on the record, but it's done very well...not like a lame neo-white boy blues revival thing. It's actually believable...after all, IT'S TOM WAITS FOR CHRIST SAKE! I think this is one of the more powerful songs on the record. Well...maybe a toss-up between this one and "Chocolate Jesus"...or "Hold on"...or "Get Behind the Mule" (you can't beat the lyric: "Punctuated birds on the power line. In a Studebaker with the Birdie Joe Joaks. I'm diggin all the way to China with a silver spoon, while the hangman fumbles with the noose...").'s just a damn good record.

Farewell ride  performed by beck

My fav beck song, bluesy/western feel

Fine Art Of Friendship  performed by King’s X  1990
Recommended by MoeShinola [profile]

King's X is my favorite hard rock band by far. This song is on Faith Hope & Love, a very psychedelic record with a sound different from their others. They must have had the fairy dust going on at the recording sessions for this album because the sound is just beyond bluesy and groovy. The guitar just sounds...slinky! that's the word. Slink and snaky and dark. Their harmonies are a wonder to behold as usual, and the lyrics are mystical and weird.

from Faith Hope & Love (Megaforce UPC)

Keep a Friend  performed by Dr. Dog  2006
Recommended by phil-e-most_1 [profile]

Great Baseline, Harmonies that make you smile, All around great "throwback" sound.

from We All Belong, available on CD (Park the Van)

No Heaven  performed by DJ Champion
Recommended by iangray [profile]

Really good song not a genre i usually listen to found it on the soundtrack for a game called "borderlands"

Pas Gentille  performed by Françoise Hardy
Recommended by djfreshmoney [profile]

Guitar strummin', laid back tune from Françoise Hardy. Cool, bluesy.

available on CD - The Vogue Years

Red Rain  performed by The White Stripes  2005
Recommended by xfanatic50 [profile]

God damn, I love Jack White. This song blows my mind... it absolutely blows my mind. I can't believe that any rock and roll band is doing something so incredibly original and startling and at the same time so basic and so primitive. The White Stripes make me believe that rock and roll, real bluesy wild rock, still lives and breathes.

from Get Behind Me Satan

  Gwendolyn: ahh! the lyrics are so good
Sequoia  performed by Fay Lovsky  1997
Recommended by mojoto [profile]

The consistent high quality of the ever expanding oeuvre of Fay Lovsky doesn't make it easy to pick one song to examplify her work, so I'll just go by the moment and will choose my present favorite Sequoia, a humorous ode to a wooden californian characterised by a laid back bluesy pizzicato groove and tremelo glissandi especially towards the end, where they tickle the tree to a dramatic finale. All instruments on this track are acoustic (drums, bass, guitar, violins) and the sound is warm and direct as usual.

from Numbers (Basta 30-9069-2)

Sweet Weepin Jesus  performed by Kemp Harris  2006
Recommended by chipster [profile]

Rootsy, Bluesy.
In the vain of Robert Johnson meets Robert Cray...

T.B. Sheets  performed by Van Morrison  1967
Recommended by schlick [profile]

Slow but haunting and bluesy tune about a gal dying from lung disease

from Blowin' Your Mind (Bang)

The Lord Is Back  performed by Eugene McDaniels  1971
Recommended by human-cannonball [profile]

The first track on the seminal 'Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse' LP McDaniels cut in 1971 is the most furious and energetic of the album. Spiritual afro-soul-rock with a politically aware attitude. A very 'dirty' psychedelic electric bass guitar with a top-class drummer (Alphonse Mouzon) comprise a hard-hitting rhythm section to remember. I prefer this very bluesy track over the more obvious selections from this top-notch release, e.g. the haunting Jagger the Dagger, and Freedom Death Dance.

from Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse (Atlantic)

  konsu: Nice choice!I always liked this song too but could'nt get anyone to pay much attention to his work.One of the more social/politically charged soul jazz records.Cherished by hip-hoppers for years,and sampled quite a bit.Needs to stand again on it's own merits!
Times have changed  performed by Supertramp  1971
Recommended by Mike [profile]

A very neatly-executed bluesy number of considerable sophistication. I prefer it to anything on "Crime of the Century" and to many of their more famous songs. Please note that the heavily-tattooed breasts that adorn the front cover of the album have never held any great personal appeal for me. Your mileage may differ.

from Indelibly Stamped, available on CD

Turn me on  performed by Norah Jones  2002
Recommended by michellegsfl [profile]

It's jazz, but very bluesy.... her vocals are so smooth and the music is sensual and personal. I love it...

from come away with me

Where Is the Soul of America  performed by Mike Stout  2013
Recommended by radiofreetunes [profile]

Where is the soul of America? - In these times of warring political factions putting the government in unproductive grid lock Mike Stout asks what happened to the driving American spirit that united Americans to do great things. In this bluesy slide guitar driven tune a big chorus of singers asks:
“Where is the soul of America? Where is the spirit that made you great? Where is the soul of America? We need it now more than ever today. Where’s the will, that brought the Bill of Rights to stay, The ways and means to bring about our common dreams…now?”

Wild Women  performed by The Big Three (featuring "Mama" Cass Elliott  1964
Recommended by FlyingDutchman1971 [profile]

Cass Elliott at her sassy best. A jazzy/bluesy song wherein Ms. Elliott lays it on the line. If her man doesn't do right by her she is going to send him packing!
This world is a slightly dimmer place since Cass departed...

from Live From the Recording Studio (Warner Bros Records FM LP 311)
available on CD - Live From the Recording Studio / Dream a Little Dream - the Cass Elliott Collection (Collectibles B00004YNF5 / MCAD 11532)
