I'm a Bluesman is an album by blues guitarist and singer Johnny Winter. This was his first studio album with new material in twelve years, released by Virgin Records on June 25, 2004.
The album is a mixture of original songs and covers of blues standards. As the album's title suggests, the songs have strong emphasis on traditional electric blues over the blues-rock elements on some previous Winter albums.
Music website AllMusic gave I'm a Bluesman three out of five stars. Reviewer Richie Unterberger stated that "... it was about exactly the set you'd expect from Winter, setting energetic if predictably formatted material to solid electric blues arrangements..." and
pointed out the acoustic song "That Wouldn't Satisfy" as providing the album's more inspired moments.
