The Top 30 British Blues Rock Albums Of All Time

teamrock-masthead-beta

Team Rock published a list of The Top 30 British Blues Rock Albums Of All Time. This is a period of music that had a profound influence upon my listening and buying habits. I find it ironic that I would learn about the blues first from England versus its native origin, the United States. Many of the British blues artists recorded songs from such artists as Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, and Robert Johnson (to name just a few American blues legends).

I own 11 of the 30 recordings listed. It will be an enjoyable weekend to play and savor these British blues rock album classics.
