Charles Caldwell! He only released one album though, but it's a good 'un. I just heard John Hammond's "Wicked Grin" awhile back and thought it was cool as hell. It's pretty rough. Great lyrics too.
And I'm always a good bet. Go listen to me! =D

Another vote for Jonh Hammond & RL Burnside.

Add,,,,

Eric Sardinas - Treat me Right Cd
Fred McDowell
Junior Wells - Come on in this House Cd
That Jr. Wells Cd has got a bunch of great Slide Guitarists on it.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Oct-25-05 AT 01:59 PM (EST)]You got me there, most of my stuff is old vinyl or tapes,with occasional downloaded CDs. Very rocky but full of the Fire is Aerosmith's Honkin On Bobo. You're over there and winter is approaching, which is a shame, as English car boot sales (is that trunk sales?) in the summer often fetch up discarded collections of recent CD releases from a "Collect The Blues" magazine for absolute pennies.

Nice thing if the shop has it is JLH & Canned Heat's Hooker'n'Heat (it is rereleased on CD). Just listen to Peavine Special, like a damn great train straight through your front room.

you'd be surprised--theres a large music store in hollywood that i adore called Amoeba Music. Cheap Cds (usually $7.99 new!) and A LARGE SELECTION.

It even has its own LARGE SEPARATE BLUES/JAZZ ssection. I can definitly find a lot of stuff. If its on CD, i be i can find it.

The artists i listed would most likely be at the store.


If not, tower records online might have em. Great selection.

Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson & James Cotton. Many (including myself) believe Little Walter to be the BEST & most influential of all the harp players. He can do it all & his bands were always top shelf. Roy BB

If I were to build an essential collection, I would include Charley Patton, Albert King and Albert Collins.
