Blues Music & Pool - 07-08-2013, 03:07 PM

I figured to ask here: What are some of the best Blues songs to play pool by ?? All opinions are welcome, but I'm looking for something more like John Lee Hooker than CCR,Stevie Ray Vaugh,ZZ Top, Eric Clapton.

There is nothing like playing a good set with some blues playing in the background !

Believe it or not, my BF enjoys Barry White when he shoots pool ---> HERE.

He even has that as his ring tone on his cell phone. LOL

Nice Jam ! Brings back memories.

I'm looking for blues with a beat, something rockin' in the background....

THANKS !

Check out Chris Whitely. Unbelievable talent and he died way too young and recorded some great down to earth music. I have all of his albums including the Dirt Floor album which I have on 180 gram vinyl. That album was recorded on a 2 track and a ribbon mike in his dad's shop and is consistently in the top 100 best albums for audiophiles in Stereophile magazine.

Other than that, check out the classic guys like Bobby Bland, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin Wolf, B.B., Junior Wells, Little Walker, etc.

If you want to get into some jazz/blues, one of my favorites is Jimmy Smith's album "Back at the Chicken Shack".

As a side note, my vinyl collection is approaching 4,000 albums and are all in pristine condition and are cleaned on a VPI cleaner and played on a setup including a fantastic Music Hall turntable. My cd collection is approaching 3,000.

I also have a bachelors in jazz performance from University of North Texas and went most of my through my Masters at Northern Illinois University before I left to play professional trumpet for 10 years.

If you want some more music recommendations, send me a PM and we can chat forever.

Rack 'em Up by Jonny Lang is a new/old standard. I know you said no SRV or ZZTop but Dirty Pool by SRV is fun and LaGrange is about as old school as you can get. Cheatin' & Stealin' by Texas Johnny Brown is one of my favorites even though it's got nothing to do with pool (it's a "jump blues" written for dance halls; not gritty blues). Bad, Bad LeRoy Brown by Jim Croce is almost a cliche, but fun anyway.

If you're looking for old school I'd recommend Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Elmore James and Buddy Guy (although Buddy does a lot of newer blues too, since he's still among the living).

Can't go wrong with John Lee Hooker:
I'm Bad Like Jesse James
Boom Boom
One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer
Bluebird
You Know, I Know
Think Twice Before You Go
I Can't Quit You Baby (how's that for a pool song?)
etc., etc.

Jonny langs 1st 2 albums are great.
Strong persuader by Robert Cray, really anything by Robert Cray. Gary Moore is really good too, "still got the blues for you " is one of my favorite songs.

Totally agree, blues and pool is like bacon and anything. Personally, I like BB King in the background.

Any Robert Johnson is great to play to. Jimi Hendrix Catfish Blues or the original Voodo Chile. Lightnin Hopkins is also a personal favorite.

All good, but why no women blues singers so far?

Dinah Washington- Birth of the Blues/ I Don't Hurt Anymore and Big Long Slidin' Thing

Koko Taylor- That's Why I'm Crying and I'd Rather Go Blind

Etta James- I'll Drown In My Own Tears and I Sing the Blues

Ruth Brown- Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean and If I Can't Sell It

Big Mama Thornton- Ain't Nothing You Can Do and Everything Gonna Be Alright and Little Red Rooster

Esther Phillips- No Headstone On My Grave and Set Me Free

Billie Holliday- Ain't Nobody's Business

(ok- just saw DoubleD mentioned Billie)


"Black is White, 2+2=5, War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength." -1984 or now?
