Well, Mike - Country Blues isn't really to my taste (I think I prefer electric guitars!), though I'm partial to a little Charley Patton when the mood takes me. Robert Johnson, in small doses - he's too powerful take in large quantities. Stretching the point - the Memphis string bands, (like Gus Cannon's Jug Band) and some of the folks who blurred the line between Blues and Country, like Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams and the Delmore Brothers. Will that do for starters??

Back in the 60's, although it was rare, a blues 45 would sneak up the charts. On WWRL they would play a short cart before playing one: "Come on soul brother, play me some blues!"

"The Jungle" B.B. King
"Baby Scratch My Back" Slim Harpo
"It's A Man Down There" G.L. Crockett
"Shame Shame Shame" Jimmy Reed
"Big Legs Tight Skirt" John Lee Hooker
"Dirty Work Goin' On" Little Joe Blue
"Part Time Love" Little Johnny Taylor
"The Sky Is Crying" Elmore James
