Albert King: live wire, blues power is very good!
BB King: Blues is King (think that's what it's called?!) is up there for me
The first Indegineous album is not to shabby either.......

Not sure I'd call 3 and 4 blues albums. 1 is iffy too.

Not a blues album, but Allman Brothers at Fillmore East has some of the best blues ever recorded on it.

If you want to get introduced to other artists, Alligator has a bunch of sampler CDs out there. That would be a good way to find out who's out there and who you like.

I like Chris Cain
Lucky Peterson
Johnny Winter
Roy Buchanan
Gary Moore (mainly a rock player, but does some good blues too)
Freddie King
Some of Eric Clapton's blues stuff

I'm going to second "Sweet Tea" by Buddy Guy. I love Junior Kimbrough, as well as guys like RL Burnside, and Sweet Tea is a great tribute to Junior. But that stuff is entirely different form the same old SRV, Clapton, etc. type of stuff.

BB King - Live in Cook County Jail, Indianola Mississippi Seeds
SRV - Texas Flood
Rev. Gary Davis - Harlem Street Singer
Johnny Winter - Johnny Winter, Second Winter, Progressive Blues Experiment, Nothin' but the Blues
Jazzy torch song type blues - Diana Krall

....and lots of ZZ Top and Led Zep songs...



my all-time favorites? Second Winter and Texas Flood
YMMV

Copeland, Collins Cray - showdown (KILLER)
Buddy guy - A man and the blues
Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live

Mayall's Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (kind of moving to rock but still steeped in blues)
I've also got a Mayall Boxed set that is incredible (full of Clapton and Green)

As mentioned about
BB King - Live at the Regal,
Wolf - London Sessions (Some GREAT Clapton work on it)

so many more.

BB King "Live at the Regal" Is the best lesson on how to be a showman/bluesman I have ever heard.

I wore out the double live Albert King album.

Are you talking straight/traditional blues or more of a blues influenced rock? Blues covers a lot of territory. It's a very broad genre.
