This list is a partial list of the material that is currently in our songbook... At our gigs, you will hear many of these great songs.
Crossroads blues - Yes, of course the Robert Johnson song, covered by many artists... But not quite like this perhaps.
The thrill is gone - The great B.B. King song of course - You will have heard it, but maybe not like this!
King bee - Energetic swamp rock... A real show-stopper!
A quitter never wins - Powerful slow blues written by Tinsley Ellis and Margaret Sampson.
Just got back from baby’s - A great early ZZ Top mid tempo blues number...
While my guitar gently weeps - The George Harrison song - but with a completely new and unique arrangement. You won't have heard it performed
quite like this, I'm sure!
Feels like rain - A soulful, atmospheric reading of a great John Hiatt song.
New coat of paint - Written and originally performed by Tom Waits, and most recently covered by Joe Bonamssa on his excellent ‘Driving towards daylight’ CD album.
Many miles travelled - Wonderful but slightly obscure uptempo BB King song.
To the devil a dime - A powerful, driving blues-rock song originally from Tinsley Ellis.
Lie to me - Written and performed originally by US bluesman Jonny Lang.
Down in the hole - Originally Tom Waits. Famously used as the theme music for the compelling US police drama - ‘The Wire’.
Blues is my business - Our raucous, energetic version of an Etta James song from 2003.
Blueshounds Original songs...
Like a back door man The very first Blueshounds original... Words by Al Lee and music by former Blueshound Steve Buxton,
it’s an ‘ironic’ blues song for the 21st century - atmospheric and soulful. It's become a crowd favourite over the last two or three years.
Pull the wishbone - A new Lee/Hollinshead song. Almost prog-rock in its style and scope. A cool song, and one that seems different each play!
Going down the other side - Lyrics and tune by JP. Thick, soulful guitar riffs and heavy reverb and octave-laden effects by Al Lee.
One foot in the blues - An atmospheric, mid tempo, modern blues song written by Al and Tony.
Swamp dog blues - A sparse, percussive number. A slower more traditional blues song written by Al Lee (music)
and Caz Bailey (words).
Streets full of strangers - Al and Tony have written this... A rockier blues number than is typical for us...
And many more to come...
