Blues Music
Ok, so I saw the movie "Black Snake Moan" and really got into the blues music. Does anyone know of comparable Blues tunes/CD's I could find??

Surely Blind Lemon Jefferson (and his contemporaries such as Lead Belly), after whose song the film is named, would be a good place to start.

You would probably prefer the delta blues I'm guessing.

Taj Mahal, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Big Mama Thornton (who had her tunes lifted by Elvis), Bessie Smith...Good places to start...

Son House is a must. Also check out Guitar Slim, Skip James, Ida Cox, and Ma Rainey.

Son House -- Death Letter

The White Stripes have NOTHING on this original version.

Stevie Ray Vaughan -- Texas Flood

www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAxLgGVRV64

At 4:50 it sounds like his strings are about to die.

Stevie Ray Vaughan -- Scuttle Buttin

www.youtube.com/watch?v=agHM4UC1gxo

^ This song is so brutally fast that it frustrates Kirk Hammett from Metallica. His style is often compared to Jimi Hendrix and I honestly wouldn't be able to tell you who was better.

fourboltmain, have you ever checked out Fat Possum Records? Some fantastic artists have put out albums on that label.

Judging from your interest in Son House you might really like Robert Belfour, Charles Caldwell and R.L. Burnside. Brillinat and raw and very expressive. I mean those three are really soul stunning.

Oh, the Black Keys are signed with them, too. But the label has a fairly wide variety styles from that authentic, acoustic sound (which I adore ) to the more rockish sounding stuff.
