Desert Island Discs-6 

& & by Mike Reilly - Spokane & & & &





Robert Johnson's "Sweet Home Chicago" is one of many outstanding songs played and sung brilliantly by Luther Allison on his Live in Montreux 1976-1994 masterpiece. It contains the best blues ever made.


Not far behind Allison is John Lee Hooker's Best of: 1965 to 1974. Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" is a classic that gets your heart pounding to the bass guitar beat as you sing along.


No collection of blues is complete without a good helping of Eric Clapton. Clapton's two-CD set, Blues includes live and studio offerings. Both contain the soul of Clapton with "Before You Accuse Me" and "Stormy Monday."


For those who like a less electric sound, I recommend the suitable-for-crying-in-your-beer, Unplugged Clapton. "Tears in Heaven" and "Nobody Knows You When You Are Down and Out" will start your blues day.


Last but not least, is a CD named Pavarotti & amp; Friends for War Child. Pavarotti is superb as usual and is joined in duets by Clapton, Elton John, Jon Secada and others. Most outstanding is "My Love" by Italian artist, Zucchero. This is not your ordinary opera music.
