Any recommendations on some good blues artists? so far I've got Carey and Lurrie Bell, Elmore James, Joe Kubek, Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters and Rick Estrin on my list. Any other artists I should be checking out and adding to it? I realize there's a lot of sub genres in Blues music, but open to suggestions.

Tks, Adrian

John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers used to be one of my favorites, but I haven't listend to blues in years. Maybe it's time to buy some CD's.

Good suggestions so far and here's a mix of others I like: Guitar Shorty, Corey Harris, Howlin' Wolf, Keb' Mo', Freddie King, Cocoa Montoya, Tinsley Ellis, Kenny Wayne Sheperd, Little Walter, Canned Heat, R.L. Burnside, North Mississippi Allstars, Etta James, Jimmy Thackery, Walter Trout and a couple of my favorite Otis' ... Otis Taylor and Otis Rush.


I knew I'd forget a couple of good ones ... Roy Buchanan, Rory Gallagher, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi.

Adrian, go to CD Baby and take a peek, there are a ton of lesser known artist that produce some amazing music. I've bought several very good albums from obscure artist on that site.

Looks like Mark, Rick and Fred got it pretty much covered.

Lightnin' Hopkins, Sean Costello, Robben Ford, Allman Brothers, Jeff Healey, Charlie Musselwhite, Lloyd Jones, Joe Bonamassa, Junior Wells, Eric Bibb, Koko Taylor.

I've been listening to a lot of Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin lately - some people laugh like you're making a joke when you say Zeppelin was a blues band.
