I love Gallagher, Fresh Evidence is one of my all-time fave LPs.

*Michelle Shocked, great musician. I was lucky to see her perform a small pub gig a few years ago (Corny video sorry but the only complete version I could find on-line.)-


*Knopfler - Astonishing guitarist, one of my heroes :-)


*Chicken Shack, 'I'd Rather Go Blind'. A gorgeous song (Etta James cover)-


And some trad.. (I did read the OP!)

*Sonny Boy Williamson, fantastic blues harp player -



*Muddy Waters -


I'll stop now lol. Could spend all day digging up blues toons

But for some great acoustic stuff, I'd definitely recommend if you can find them, John Mayall's 'Turning Point' LP, and Hot Tuna, who were a spin-off of Jefferson Airplane playing original and trad blues.

For more trad, look for Howlin' Wolf, Albert King, BB King, Willie Dixon, T-Bone Walker, JB Lenoir, Robert Johnson ...

Thanks for posting that, I'm a huge Tull fan. I grew up with Aqualung, and for some reason those guys always reminded me of medieval scoundrels and bards.

Your welcome Solidaire. I am A Jethro Tull nut and have 17 of their CDs and three DVDs. They played my home town last year but Mrs Von Ranke refused point blank to come with me so I went on my own llike the saddo I am. Anderson's voice has went south but the music was still outstanding. This is another blues/jazz number from This Was :
