Looking for a blues dance compilation cd

Postby Learningtheblues » Wed Apr 27, 2005 1:15 am

Hello,
does anyone have any suggestions for a blues dance compilation cd? I like dancing to slow blues mostly with a little jazz mixed in.

thanks

I wouldn't call it a compilation CD, but if you're starting out and you're looking for a good album - "Stormy Monday" by Lou Rawls (with Les McCann) comes to mind.

Most Blues Compilation CDs that I can think of don't have all good quality danceable blues songs. Some may have faster songs for Lindy in them or some songs aren't as hot. But I believe Puntamayo Records has a New Orleans compilation with some good blues in it.

Others may have more. It's late here and I'm a bit out of it. I'll post more later if something comes up.

I spoke too soon. I believe the Chess record label has some good compilation albums. They're not as jazzy, but there's some great stuff there.

I think it really depends on what you are looking for. No CD that I know of has all slow blues.

The chess box 4 CD set has many great tunes with mostly medium and slow tempo songs in 50's chicago style blues.

I've been very happy with a 2-disc set called House of Blues:Essential Women in Blues. The CD has a great variety of styles, tempos and artists. Very danceable.

My next purchase may be a compilation called Broke, Black and Blue from Proper Music. If I get it, I'll certainly post my thoughts on it.

Already posted one of my top picks here. And, i second Nando, most of the Chess stuff that I have is really good, probably can't go wrong with them.
Now i gotta go check out Tina's suggestions.

This is a good album, I have used songs from it for both blues room and lindy sets.
