    Anything by harmonica player/producer Bob Corritore. Old school blues played with great skill. I was honored to be the bass player for him and Louisiana Red once when they played in Albuquerque.

    I got into the blues when I heard the Allman Bros. Live at the Fillmore album. That record knocked me out. When I looked at the song credits and saw Sonny Boy Williamson and T-Bone Walker, I started digging deeper and that led me down the road to the blues. I started hanging out at the local blues club where I saw Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, Hound Dog Taylor, Bryan Lee, and others playing live blues. Once you get hooked on the blues, you got ‘em for life.

    I went to college with him; he turned me on to Hound Dog Taylor and the then-fledgling Alligator record label, and thankfully siphoned me away from all the British poseurs.

    Too many. Buddy Guy, Albert King, Eric Clapton... the list could go on and on.

    The great classic blues players have been well represented in this thread. I haven’t seen this guy yet, but Joe Bonamassa gets a vote from me.

    I hear those more as parodies than interpretations. The only bunch of limeys that came close was the Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac, and, as much as I hate to say it, the Stones copped the Chess sound fairly well in their earliest days. Perhaps the early Groundhogs as well.

    I worked sound in the Midwest in the 80s and got to meet a bunch of the old greats. Albert Collins and Gatemouth Brown were my favorites back then, but i also got to work shows with John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, Koko Taylor, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, the Kinsey Report, and others I can't recall. Melvin Taylor was coming up then, and Robert Cray came through town with an alto sax player I met again in Portland some years later and hired to play at my wedding.

    There was some legit funky bass playing behind some of those acts. Amazing energy from those artists in their sunset years, still cranking out shows on the nightclub circuit after so many years.
  20. Loved going to see & hear Son Seals, Lonnie Brooks, Koko Taylor, Fenton Robinson in the Chicago blues clubs 1974-1980 for a 5 buck cover & 75 cent beers. Every night you had your choice of great bands.
