The Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album was awarded from 1983 to 2011 and from 2017 onwards. Until 1992 the award was known as Best Traditional Blues Performance and was twice awarded to individual tracks rather than albums. The award was discontinued after the 2011 Grammy season in a major overhaul of Grammy categories. From 2012 onwards, the category was merged with the Best Contemporary Blues Album category to form the new Best Blues Album category.

14. Graveyard Blues - Robert Pete Williams. 15. Silvertone Blues - Joe Louis Walker.
The Moody Blues, who are still helmed by Lodge, Edge and Hayward (whose voice, like that of the Monkees' Micky Dolenz and Bad Company's Paul Rodgers, simply laughs in the face of age), are currently hitting the road to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Days of Future Passed. That's the album-recorded with the London Festival Orchestra-that spawned "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin"-lush, sweet-sounding songs that turned out to be just the tip of the Moodies' innovative, complex and ornate iceberg

Blues Guitar Masters. When one sees Blues Guitar Masters splashed on an album cover, on should expect several tracks from each of the true blues icons of the music. That Little Milton and Pat Hare are included, much less Jeff Beck with the Yardbirds, Robert Cray, Jimi Hendrix, and Walter Trout, one has to question the taste level of the compiler. No doubt truly great pure blues guitarists as T-Bone Walker, Magic Sam, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Elmore James, Albert and Freddy King, Albert Collins and, yes, Roy Buchanan deserve representation. Even Peter Green and Johnny Winter as a stretch are reasoned choices
