I finally went back and voted for Big Bill Broonzy, though I can't recall hearing his version. His bar's red, I love red, and I felt sorry for him not having any votes.

Aerosmith's got it on "Honkin' On Bobo."

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Mar-31-06 AT 04:15 PM (EST)]Mance Lipscomb and Lightnin' Hopkins perform their takes on "Baby Please Don't Go" on this Yazoo DVD: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004 ... ance&n=130
They've got quite different approaches to it. Both awesome though.

Ted Nugent has a live dvd out called "Full Bluntal Nugity" that has a blues jam on it from some wedding, he's REALLY good. I've seen him live too, and he's insane. Which I knew, but it's a whole new level when it's in person. ;)

Fred McDowell!! I just love the way he finishes his vocal lines with the singing guitar.

My version :P I was messing around the other night and played a few verses in half time, it was lovely. It's one of my handful of tunes ready for gigging.

If Big Bill's done it, I usually go for his version, but Muddy's is the classic in my mind. Otis Taylor has a nice version, and I like the mellow Sonny and Brownie version. Pink's is great, too. Watermelon has a nice one.

Muddy wins, though. Nobody can beat his voice, and his band is just wicked.

i love muddy's version but to me the version that knocks me out is by mose allison..everything mose did in the early years was shaped by his love of the blues. a true delta blues man with a jazz bent, no one sounds like him on piano or singing. i listen to this at least once a week as it makes me smile. he puts such a humorous slant on things. 8)
