My favourite Electric Blues singers of the Fifties.

My friend Dick Brunning got me into the Blues when I was fourteen. He would endlessly play Lightnin’ Hopkins and Howlin’ Wolf with a bit of John Lee Hooker thrown in. I became hooked.

Here are my favourites:

Elmore James

Lightnin’ Hopkins

Howlin’ Wolf

John Lee Hooker

Muddy Waters

Sonny Boy Williams

Hounddog Taylor

Jimmy Reed

Little Walter Jacobs

Buddy Guy

BB King

Freddy King
