Merritt Best Slow Blues Songs (77* d) RE: Best Slow Blues Songs 23 Jan 03

Your idea of slow may vary from mine...also a couple these aren't in standard 12-bar blues or standard minor blues form.

~ "St. James Infirmary Blues"
~ Woody Guthrie's "Vigilante Man" really chugs along pretty nicely when slightly reconfigured as a minor blues
~ "See See Rider" done the way Mike Dowling does it is a nice slow country blues
~ Otis Rush's "Double Trouble"
~ "You Rascal You" (1931; Sam Theard) sounds good slow
~ Randy Newman's "Guilty"
~ "I Put A Spell On You"
~ Dylan's "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" done as a kind of funk-shuffle in Dropped D variant
~ "Ain't No Sunshine" Bill Withers
