    Bobby Blue Bland

    Muddy Waters

    Albert Collins

    Howlin Wolf

    John Lee Hooker

    Mississippi Fred McDowell

    Lightin Hopkins

    My Void is the earlier guys Like:

    Bukka White

    Willie Dixon

    Big Bill Broonsey

    Tampa Red

    What were those guys doing if any in the 50's

    Leave a little Tampa Red. 1929 recording seems way ahead of the time. So 50's, I need to know.
