I would just go with the "Layla" album, but that's just me.

Besides Duane, Derek & Ry...

Any of Johnny Winter's blues albums

Anything by Rick Vito

And, let's not leave out Bonnie Raitt.

And, of course, anything by Elmore James.

For a sort of slide guitar teacher approach, I'd recommend: Sam Mitchel, Art of Slide/Bottleneck Guitar.

George Thorogood's self-titled debut . . . what's that fancy name for self-titled . . . eponymous or something like that?

Particularly the track "Delaware Slide"

Everyone here loves Eat a Peach as well they should. But how about some love for the first two albums, the only two studio albums to feature the original band in its entirety, The Allman Brothewrs Band and Idlewild South.

did someone say rory?
most of his albums featured at least one smokin slide track. my personal favorites are "crest of a wave" from "deuce" and "souped up ford" from "against the grain". live album? "irish tour '74" of course!

I kinda like the slide work on the Mississippi Allstars albums, is it Luther Dickinson?...and you may or may not agree, but, Bonnie Raitt can play slide pretty good also...

Mmertens, you beat me to the punch. I'd recommend these:





And this is a fantastic introduction to prewar blues for under $30:



For something a little more modern, I'd recommend a little Hound Dog Taylor:

Lots of great suggestions already. Papa Mali is possibly the most underrated slide player out there, and his album "Thunder Chicken" is a good representation of his music.

Benji Shanks of Captain Soularcat is another underrated slide player, and their album "Three Rivers Point" is chock full of slide-y goodness.

Tishamingo is a band from Florida with two great slide players, Cameron Williams and Jess Franklin. They have two albums, "Wear N Tear" and their self-titled first album, and both have lots of juicy slide.

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (sp?) is a slide player from India who has a very unique sound, but if you like the Eastern side of Derek Trucks, you would probably enjoy his music.

George Harrison-All Things Must Pass
Little Feat-Waiting for Columbus
Rod Stewart-Never A Dull Moment-especially Twistin' the Night away
Delaney and Bonnie-To Bonnie From Delaney-Some of Duane's best work
Rolling Stones-Let It Bleed/Sticky Fingers
i think I remember a wicked slide on the Jeff Beck album had plynth (Down the Drain)

All pretty mainline, but..

Oh, I LOVE this one. Anyone who hasn't heard "A Meeting By the River" by Ry Cooder & V.M. Bhatt, do yourself a favor & go out & find it tomorrow. Absolutely incredible!!


....by the way, you have great taste, Moid!

"feats don't fail me now," little feat

lowell george is a one-man horn section on slide guitar, and every song on the album is classic IMO and features great sllide work of course. though "dixie chicken" aint too shabby either.


i put my weight behind this!

aussie band called 'the cruel sea' has a few albums which I would highly recommend ...they feature very nice slide work and a side project for lead singer Tex Perkins with Charlie Owen & Don Walker 'sad but true'...very tasty. not sure if they're readily available outside of oz though.

If so, anything by Jerry Douglas.

The two slide CDs I listen to most after Duane:

.

Earl's is a compilation of singles from the late '50s through the mid-'60s. Some of the cuts don't have slide, but you'll like them, too. Get 30-second samples from all the tracks by clicking "Listen to all":
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000001X4N/qid=1146744490/sr= 1-5/ref=sr_1_5/102-8173796-4071367?v=glance&s=music

Sonny's is a live CD cut in 2004. It's all slide:

Is anyone familiar with Dave Hole. the world's greatest Australian blues slide guitarist (probably also the world's ONLY Australian blues slide guitarist)??? I discovered him a few years ago almost by accident. Very high-energy stuff, to say the least. Any of his albums are good, with "The Live One" and "Ticket To Chicago" probably the best examples of his work.
