    Being a technological Luddite I can just suggest, for guitarists, check out "King's Special" from the B.B. King album, "Indianola Missippi Seeds"


    For a real hoot, if you can find it, on a BBC broadcast 'Jethro Tull" did a killer "Stormy Monday"----Blues flute Rocks.

    I don't know how to post Youtube links, as I can't access high speed internet, but remember this name:

    Tab Benoit.

    Man, he can rip up that old guitar.

    That sounds right. I couldn't load more that a few seconds of it, but the first licks sound like the music I have on the MP3 of my phone.

    Great stuff, eh?

    Yes, and I used to own the Live At Newport (1960) album the OP featured. Also owned nearly every album by John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Bo Diddley, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, and a lot of other blues greats. The big labels for the blues were Chess and Vee Jay.

    Unfortunately I played the albums so much that they were extremely worn, but I continued to carry them all over America whenever I moved. When I left California in 1999 I gave all my old albums (including C&W collectibles by Johnny Cash, Carl Smith, Jerry Lee Lewis, etc...) to the women who came in to clean up the apartment. My vehicle was packed to the very limit and I couldn't fit them in. I only learned a few years ago that I gave away thousands of dollars worth of albums.

    The best blues album I owned was BB King's [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Live-at-Regal-B-B-King/dp/B000002P72"]Amazon.com: Live at the Regal: B.B. King: Music@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61FCKPnXpdL.@@AMEPARAM@@61FCKPnXpdL[/ame]

    My vote for best blues song ever: [ame="http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R92piPuwcOQ"]Sweet Sixteen[/ame].
