Blues Greats is a 2004 film taking an in-depth look at some of the greatest blues artists of all-time. The 1960s and 1970s saw some of the best blues artists emerge onto the scene. More than likely, the names McKinley Morganfield and Peter Chapman do not ring a bell, but when you call them Muddy Waters and Memphis Slim, you have a different story. Throw in Willie Dixon, and you have three of the most popular bluesmen in the business. The movie includes performances from each of these three, as well as many others such as Amos Milburn, Lonnie Johnson, and Victoria Spivey. Their mystifying musical acts set the stage in the music world and gave the inspiration to major rock and roll bands in the 1970s including The Beatles, The Who, and The Rolling Stones. This film amazes not only classic blues fans, but also the newer generations of music listeners.
