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.

"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".)
