The Blues Is My Life is a live album by Australian blues musician Dutch Tilders and The Blues Club, originally released in April 1990 via Blues Club Records.

Dubbed the Godfather of Australian Blues, Dutch Tilders released his self-titled debut album in August 1972, after signing to Ron Tudor's Bootleg Records in September 1970 following his appearance on the talent show New Faces, where Tudor was one of the judges. With backing provided by members of Chain, and production by Brian Cadd, the album featured Tilders playing down-home Mississippi delta acoustic blues on one side, and on the other Chicago electric blues, which would later be described by journalist Ian McFarlane as "the man's mastery of the blues form". After signing to the independent label Eureka Records, Dutch Tilders went on to front The Elks, the Cyril ‘B’ Bunter Band and Mickey Finn, as well as working solo and touring with the likes of John MayallTaj MahalBrownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, and B.B. King

In 1986, Tilders formed Dutch Tilders & The Blues Club with Martin Cooper on lead guitar; Winston Galea on drums and Barry Hills on bass guitar. In 1990, Cooper left the Blues Club and was replaced by Geoff Achison on lead guitar. In April 1990 they released this album, The Blues Is My Life, when it was noted Tilders' was able to display his "rough-edged voice and guitar, traditional blues from the darker side of life." -The Canberra Times, 1990

Recordings were made at Studio 52 in Collingwood in November 1989 and April 1990, and an LP was released soon afterwards. On the album you can hear Dutch Tilders (vocals, guitar); Geoff Achison (guitar); Kenny Sutherland (harmonica); Terry Noone (tenor saxophone); Martin Corcoran (baritone saxophone); Ron Sedgman (keyboards) and Winston Galea on drums.

In May 2012 Australian Guitar magazine listed Tilders in the top 40 on their Definitive Australian Guitarists of All Time.

Check out a couple of tracks. Stop & Fix It and Bad Books.

This 1990 album is released on CD in 1999, housed in a jewel case with a printed insert, pressed in Australia via Blues Club Records.
