British Blues – Discography

This selective discography was first published by discographer Les Fancourt in 1989 as ‘British Blues On Record 1957-1970’ and was last published in print in 1992.

The discography has now been updated and covers the late 1950s blues scene, through the R&B boom of the early 1960s, and onto to the British Blues boom of the late 1960s.

A number of the bands and artists in the discography started out playing blues and R&B and many became rock stars in their own right.

This discography only contains details of British artists and bands own recordings and omits their original recordings made with visiting US blues artists.

These artists are covered in other published discographies notably The Blues Discography 3rdEdition.

The discography comprises:

  • Foreward by Neil Slaven
  • Introduction by Leslie Fancourt
  • Images of Record Labels, Artists and Album Covers
  • Discography

The discography is a ‘work in progress’ and will be updated – so readers are encouraged to send corrections, additions, edits etc. to the author Les Fancourt at the email address given in the discography.
