She was just another notch, on my guitar"

For me, I like blues with a strong rhythm section, so like:

BB King- Ghetto Woman
Etta James-Straighten it Out
Albert King- Stormy Monday and Born Under a Bad Sign
Freddie King-Going Down to Kansas City
Led Zeppelin- Since I been Loving You, Black Dog
Koko Taylor/Susan Tedeschi-Voodoo Woman

I think Jimi Hendrix's rendition of Red House at Woodstock is some of the best blues guitar you could ever hope to hear.

Got My Mojo Working - Preston Foster (specifically Muddy Waters cover)
Telephone is Ringing - Pee Wee Crayton

Pee Wee Crayton is a Blues man that doesn't get nearly enough attention in my opinion. I remember I was first introduced to him when I bought a mix taken from Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour show which had Telephone is Ringing on it, practically had to stop the car to listen to it.

Muddy Waters' Live at Newport 1960, which has Got My Mojo Working, is by far one of my favorite blues albums. Hoochie Coochie Man is another great song on that album.

Those are two of my favorites, I'm sure there are others.

I would embed but....I still need 5 more posts before I can link or embed anything into these forums haha.

One of my favorites that I do not think has been mentioned yet is

Bobby Bland - Two steps from the Blues

"I'm so forgiving, I'm so forgiving and I can't go on living two steps from the blues"

Beautiful song, sang by a very soulful singer! You can listen to this song on youtube.
