sorry if i am repeating a choice, but i havent read all the pages of this thread


Albert King

- anything of his "born under a bad sign" record http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=3679131

- anything of his "blues at sunrise" record http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=1037345


between those two albums above you get a well rounded taste of what Albert can do , his diverse in the studio song tastes and subtle tasteful guitar playing on the "born under a bad sign" album to his all out spine tingling live on stage power on "blues at sunrise" where you get the full gamut of his techniques like his signature double string bends and all that have influenced so many others ..








Buddy Guy

- "stone crazy" album has some of his most vibrant electric playing on it of all imo,,, http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=1011835,


the song " I smell a rat" stands out as a must hear by all those who study electric blues guitar, its pure frantic emotional rage let loose on a electric guitar,,,if your into blues and you have never heard this then you really should check it out,,,and of course turn up the volume ;)

Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady laid down some pretty tasty acoustic blues here:




My sister got this record for me on my 13th birthday and it was a huge influence on me. I'd recommend at least one cut (perhaps hesitation blues) for any blues compilation.

I love this one, but the focus is more on harmonica:



And I've always enjoyed the guitar in this one:


This time it is with Dr. John, so maybe there's a bit less guitar and more keyboard in this particular version.


For more guitar there's videos of her with BB King, SRV, Keith Richards, Robert Cray, and so on.
