    Any blues lover on this forum owes it to himself to check out John Hammond. And don't be deterred by his good looks. Just because he's pretty doesn't mean he's not the real deal! Listen to him here:



    If I had to pick a studio LP to recommend, it would be this one:

    In a perhaps not entirely surprising coincidence, "Source Point" has now been paired with my alternate selection, "I'm Satisfied", on CD:

    I'm very liberal minded about these things you know so go ahead and buy a compilation if you want.

    Here's a good writeup on John:

    And here's a link to his website:

    Very nice Fox, I'll see if I can find a copy of Source Point in my travels, I've heard of JH before, but I'm not the biggest blues fan.

    I remember hearing some of his stuff, very good, wasn't he on the point blank label with Johnny Winter in the 90's?

    Yes he was. Point Blank Records is actually just the blues specialty label subsidiary of Virgin Records. Here's another good John Hammond track:
