    I'm slowly acquiring play list favorites for 50's blues. Been more successful for early rock and jive. Would love to fill in void as much as possible.

    A little Jive Bombers:

    But to go into full blown blues. Favorites:

    Albert King

    Freddy King

    BB

    Otis Rush

    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.
