The Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album was awarded from 1983 to 2011 and from 2017 onwards. Until 1992 the award was known as Best Traditional Blues Performance and was twice awarded to individual tracks rather than albums. The award was discontinued after the 2011 Grammy season in a major overhaul of Grammy categories. From 2012 onwards, the category was merged with the Best Contemporary Blues Album category to form the new Best Blues Album category.
The Grammy Award for Best Blues Album was an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 and originally called the Gramophone Awards, to recording artists for releasing albums in the blues genre.
The Pointblank label, at this time a relative newcomer to the blues label recording industry, issued a sampler of its artists ranging from acoustic and electric blues, some funk and rock artists playing blues inflected music. The most convincing bluesman on their roster certainly is the legendary Elmore James and his classic "Dust My Blues," always confused with the Johnny Shines classic "Dust My Broom" but the former is the lyric he does sing.
