    I know this is off topic, but, I'm looking for your used blues music cd's. I know a lot of you are blues music fans, just like me. If you have some CD's that you have already downloaded to your ipod, etc. and have them just sitting in a box somewhere, I'm in the market for them. I'll take one cd, or 100 cd's, depending on what you have. Next to trap shooting, my love is listening to all types of blues. I'm always trying to add to my collection, so, if you have anything available, either PM me, or you can email me at trap2danat yahoodotcom.........Thanks, Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Dan,


    Do you have a Sirius/XM satellite subscription? They have a channel there that is dedicated 100% of the time to the blues. I listen every day on my commute.


    Sat radios have an audio out jack that could be used to record providing damn near CD quality.

    Why ask them to send you the original disks?

    Possibly if they already have them in mp3 format on there computers you might just ask for it that way ... many more per CD and possiby even via e-mail depending on qty of songs at a time sent.

    Dan,
    I know it's not run of the mill Blues type stuff, but check out The Blue's Project group from back in the early 70s, I think it was. They were really good, did some instrumental stuff too, like Flute Thing. Good luck, puablo

    Dan.... me too... try xm radio "Bluesville". They play mostly the old blues. Forget Blues Project, they played what they believed to be Blues which wasn't. You can purchase remix's of old blues recording on Amazon and ebay. I have a cd with remix's of old Chess Recordings. Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf etc. They're around if you look hard enough. Godd luck.

    Dan, I have a studio version of Percy Strother's " A Good Woman is Hard to Find" CD. In 1992 Living Blues Magazine voted it the best blues LP of the year.

    He past away in 2005. Send me your e-mail, I'll burn you a copy, and send it.
    I don't want any money. From one blues aficionado to another. Wayne

    I'm partial to Etta James, Johnnie Johnson, Old Aretha Franklin stuff. Saffire Blues Women, Clapton, John Lee Hooker, Koko Taylor, Lonnie Brooks, Ruthie Foster, Dr. John, Stevie Ray Vaughn (the Santa Cruz special), Janis Joplins original music, (now there was a woman that could sing the blues) James Cottom, Jimmie Reed, just about all the real blues singers. Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers, especially his wife on the piano. Unbelievable stuff. Of course, we can't leave out early Ray Charles stuff, Billy Holiday, and so many ohers. I just like it all. If you have something you wouold likie o share, i will gladly pay for your time and effort to help me keep building the collecion. I am up to about 80 CD's right now, and want at least 100 more......Dam

    I like Blues a lot but my real love is Bluegrass or anything with a banjo in it. I pick on the Jo a little and I have 100's of Bluegrass CD's. I have every album that Jimmy Martin made and all of the Osborne bro's and lots more. Jimmy Martin is my all time favorite. In the late 50's I rode my Triumph Tiger 110 from Ft Wayne Indiana to Nashville TN to watch the Opry at the Old Rymun theatre nearly every weekend rain or shine. Thats about 700 miles on a vibrating piece of sh-- but I loved the music there that much. When I turned old enough I spent a lot of time at the Nashville bars listening to Bluegrass, Country and Blues. It gave me the opportunity to drink a beer with some really famous country musicians and hear some awesome picking and singing
