We’ve set ourselves another, almost, impossible challenge.

The 100 Greatest Blues Albums

This time it’s to come up with a definitive list of the 100 Greatest Blues Albums…ever. As usual we haven’t just dreamed up this list, we have trawled the net, looked through numerous magazines and books to try to get a consensus as to what the 100 should be. Well, have we succeeded? We are surprised by the breadth of the blues, as well as the sheer number of different blues styles that are represented here. There’s the jazz end of the blues, the folk-blues, blues rock, straight forward, honest to goodness, down home blues, Chicago Blues, British Blues, Country Blues as well as White men playing the Blues Most fans of the blues recognise that it is something that is as often as not best played live and there are some cracking ‘in concert’ performances. We have given you the list alphabetically, having given up trying to do 100 down to #1. Albert Collins Ice Pickin Albert Collins, Robert Cray & Johnny Copeland Showdown!

Suzanne DeChillo/The New York Times Italian Baroque works in the Metropolitan Museum’s European paintings galleries, which have expanded by nearly a third and undergone a reinstallation.

New European Paintings Galleries, 1250-1800, at the Met

The last reinstallation was in 1972 and encompassed a chronological span from Giotto to Picasso. Later, 19th- and 20th-century art was cut loose and sent elsewhere. The rest of the European collection, by then huge, easily could have filled the freed-up space. But the Met decided to reserve the emptied galleries for blockbuster shows. Now comes a change.
