    the old school of blues is nice. Johnson, muddy and buddy are for sure the ones i would recomend.

    On another note just got back from Montreux Jazz, and watched, Chicago Blues a living History, was a fun concert seeing Billy Boy Arnold, John Primer, Carlos Johnson and Lurrie Bell performing was interesting. Better then the Dylan performance before them.

    **** yes.

    John Lee Hooker is probably my favorite of all time, but love Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins, Muddy, Albert, BB.....I guess I'll throw SRV in here, but not exactly old blues.

    One of my prized possessions are those 1941 Plantation Recordings of Muddy right there on his front porch at the Stovall Plantation. A must have for any fan of old Delta blues and Muddy.

    Yep, can't go wrong with those you mentioned.

    Dylan a big fan of them old blues. Did a couple Blind Lemon Jefferson/Bukka White coverrs on his debut album. Blind Wilie McTell his favorite.

    Hopkins my favorite post war bluesman, his Hello Central Please Give Me 209...stunning. Hookers pre 1960 stuff-riveting!

    Muddy Waters hands down, blues is fun to play on guitar
    "Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace."-Bill Hicks
