It would be hard for me to pick any one album but I can reccomend some artist I enjoy.
I do like more of the old acoustic delta blues sound more than anything of the other types of blues.
Artsit I like, Son House, Skip James, Lerpy Carr, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Scrapper Blackwell,Big Bill Broonzy,Sleepy John Estes,Blind Boy Fuller,Mississippi John Hurt,Blind Willie Johnson,Mississippi Fred McDowell,Charlie Patton.

You can't go wrong with Hooker or John Hammond

I enjoy more of the old blues, nothing these days does it for me.
Buddy Guy has A couple out I do enjoy Sweet Tea and Blues Singer. Most of his stuff from the last 20 yrs is pretty solid but all souonds the same, IMHO.

One artist kinda obscure but who I really enjoyed was John Campbell . He has some success inthe early 90's. I really like him. He ended up passing away just after his name was kinda getting out there. Real gritty electric delta blues sound, kinda rockin alittle too!!

If you want some variety check out the American Folk Blues Festival cds/dvd's. They were recorded in Europe and feature a lot of the old blues artists while they were still touring. Excellent quality. I'm pretty sure you can find them at Amazon.

Love that record. While it may not be everyone's best playing it melds the two generations together almost as well as Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Will The Cirlce Be Unbroken (part one)

Been my favorite since I've been in middle school about 17 years ago.

Robert Nighthawk Live on Maxwell St 1964 is a GREAT blues sleeper
Showdown w/ Robert Cray/Albert 'Icepick' Collins and Johnny Copeland is a great disc
My personal fav is Luther Allison Live at the Chicago Blues Fest, although Buddy Guy's A man and his blues is also worthy. And we can't forget the Kings, Albert (I Wanna Get Funky) is a very underrated disc, Freddy's work is all solid, and BB Live at the Cook County Jail is a keeper.

Great thread! I'm putting on some blues tonight!

As for recommendations, start out with Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. The sky's the limit from there! Rock On!

Thanks everyone! I'm picking up Luther Allison. I sampled the disk on Amazon. It has some great covers, great playing and I don't own any Allison yet. Thanks for the suggestions. It was fun to dig through Amazon and sample a bunch of stuff.

You know an entire treasure chest of vintage blues music can be found on a multitude of recordings from the Newport Folk Festivals, mostly released on the Vanguard label. I have the NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL: BEST OF THE BLUES 1959-1968 (Vanguard), which is three discs, and features the greatest performances from the blues artists. As far as I know it's still in print.

This three disc set released in 2002 features great performances from Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Muddy Waters, Jesse Fuller, McGee & Terry, Lightnin Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Butterfield Blues Band, etc. The sound quality is amazing, sounds almost like it was recorded yesterday.

Most people think the Newport Folk Festival in terms of Bob Dylan and how he became the king of the folk/protest movement, and how he went electric. However, the Newport Folk Festivals was also about the blues and other forms of music. This blues compilation album has a companion bluegrass set worth picking up as well.
