John Lee Hooker

As you might now, I love the blues. I don't know why it's taken me so long to look for them this summer!
But both of these are a bit meditative blues. Longer passages, less 'hooks'. They build on you, the way Baroque music might, but with a totally different mood and instrumentation.

Hobo Blues from 1967


And Tupelo, Mississippi, also known as Black Water Blues, performed in 1993.
