Blues Music From Dusty Woods

Ultimate Honky-Tonk isn’t just about country!  Blues music is a natural part of honky-tonk, and Dusty’s blues albums offer you a range of originals and new takes on blues standards.  Blues may be rough and nasty, smooth and insolent, silky-sad, or mellow, but whatever the feeling, this is where you find songs that grab you from the first incredible note.

Dusty's early blues influences include BB King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Sonny Terry.  Dusty's blues albums offer some amazing lead guitar (from his Telecaster, "Gypsy"), a bass line that adds more than just a steady beat, and truly bluesy lyrics.

On The Blue Side Album


Dusty's premiere blues album.  Take a trip on the blue side of life with everything from original jazz-blues with a film noir feeling and lively Chicago blues to new takes on traditional blues songs like "Sitting On Top Of The World".  Uptown or downtown, everybody gets the blues sometimes.

Still Standing Album


Still standing after all these years... it's about hard times and tough knocks and keepin' on going.  Dusty's second blues album takes you to the wrong side of midnight with a wailin' Tele.  Blues from mellow and sensuous to twelve-bar blues to a touch of 20s vaudeville-style blues, plus a tribute to the late, great Ray Charles.

Gypsy Blues Album



"Gypsy Blues" is the blues side of the double album "50", helping Dusty celebrate 50 years as a performer!  Dusty wrote the title song in honour of his Telecaster, "Gypsy".  A smorgasbord of blues styles from funky to country-blues to a jazz-blues waltz.  (Album trivia:  Dusty's funky fuzz-guitar blues "2B2 Funky" is based on one of Dusty's country songs, "B22".)
