Taj Mahal - The Best of Taj Mahal Volume I
This disc of Taj Mahal hits features some very fine down-home folksy blues. My favorite track is "Fishing Blues" because Taj's raspy vocals carry the track better than any other version of the song I've ever heard. I believe it was this album and a little research that introduced me to Howlin' Wolf. Although Howlin' Wolf is superior to Taj Mahal, I still have a fondness for the man that started my serious interest in the blues. This album is always a fun listen, and it'll spin again before a lot of things in my collection.
