BluesMusicFan Radio’s Top 20 Blues Albums of 2017!

2017 was a remarkable year for the Blues genre. Some exciting new artists hit the airwaves, some sad passings, and either way, time does march on. I think I speak for the station when I say we get really excited to hear new takes on traditional blues and we honor and deeply respect those that originated the genre as well. That being said, we are a Contemporary Blues radio station, and we soon start our fifth year in operation bringing you our selections for the Top 20 Blues Albums of 2017, as selected by our DJs.

Support the blues! Buy these albums and of course some of your other favorites. Go out and see them live, you’d be surprised how much these artists are on the road, and how reasonably priced a ticket is. If you click on the album, you can help support this station by purchasing it through Amazon with the link provided.

Here we are listing them from #20 to #1 – but if you’d like to see the list in one shot, please click here or on the graphic to the right. … And here we go!

    Great Top 20 Blues list for 2017 . BMFR DJ’s play only the best Blues in the world. Of course we all have our favorites and mine would be: Rocky Athas, Nina Massara and Billy D & The Hoodoos. #1 is deserved. TajMo
