I'm on a Campilongo trip right now. Anyone suggest some other music to get like Jim? I've got the Danny Gatton, Roy Buchanan, Redd Volkaert, and some others like that.

But if you can think of anyone else to get please let me know :D I'm doing an order with Amazon for a bunch of music and would like to get some new stuff also.

Jim's pretty unique and not many do his thing but the above players are equally melodic & burning. There's a lot of talent out there!

Tough call here, try to find Jimmie Rivers and the CHerokees, Brisbane Bop JR is a monster player 1961 - 1964 noted on the CD as the time period, JC ate this guys lines up. Also has the song A Smooth One on it.
It also has Vance Terry on it playing lap steel. A very humbling CD, its live and I would say its a huge influence on JC's playing. I am a huge JC fan.

Some Bill Frisell stuff should interest you. Let me know what you think of Jimmie Rivers.

Good Luck

Go to the source! I've read that Jimmy Bryant and Speedy West were big influences on Jim.

I love Bill Frisell. I've got most all of his albums :) I'll check out Jimmie Rivers

Raymond Chandler ... not a guitarist, but Jim's music always remindes me of a Raymond Chandler novel.

West and Bryant - Stratosphere Boogie is a must have. Also check out Jim's site for his influences.

Jim Campilongo has a creepy exotic side to his playing that I don't really hear in the playing of the cats mentioned in this thread so far except for maybe Marc Ribot and Bill Frisell.
