After exploring reggae music for the past 15 years, I find myself wanting to discover more blues artists like the ones I was into before the reggae bug bit--James Harmon, The Bel Airs
, Freddie King, etc. I don't know the right adjectives to describe this kind of blues, but I would describe it as mid-tempo dance party blues, heavy on the groove and with a classic late 50s/early 60s sound--fender tube amps and guitars. (Follow the Bel Airs link for an example.) If you know what I'm describing, please recommend some artists and albums. Thanks!
