    Hey guys,
    I am looking for some of that real gritty, dark blues music.
    Stuff like the early Black Keys, Junior Kimbrough, and especially the Buddy Guy Sweet Tea album.
    Any recommendations are appreciated.

    JB Hutto and His Hawks, Johnny Shines, early Son Seals, Hound Dog Taylor, Magic Sam, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, Robert Nighthawk...you should also check out the Sam Charters-produced collections called "Chicago/The Blues/Today!" which were released on the Vanguard label in the '60s/early '70s. You can find them all on CD.
    I also really like this clip of two performers on Maxwell Street in the late '70s...!

    The Howlin' Diablos from Detroit are a lot of fun...
