Would T-Bone Walker's T-Bone Blues album or the Imperial Recordings be a good recommendation? I've put in hours of listening to T-Bone as well as studying him and I've learned quite some things from his masterful style.

Sorry for not being original but the there are two kinds of blues I listen to:
1. Anything by Robert Johnson
2. Everything else, mostly Chicago blues. Blues from the rest of the US sounds good (and I have lived all over it to gather this experience) but the Chicago blues is the best to me. From the greats like Luther Allison and Buddy Guy to lesser knowns like Hound Dog Taylor and Elmore James (I still cannot listen to 12 year old boy and not crack a smile), these musicians had it all...

If you want to hear a very cool and unique blues artist try Harry Manx!
