I first got into the blues via the early John Mayall albums, he did so much to bring the blues to the attention of a wider audience - especially here in the UK.

Of all the blues artists I've seen my favourite has to be Buddy Guy - his guitar playing is faultless.

John Mayall indeed - this lots to promote the blues to us po' white boys!
I was in Bucharest about three summers ago and he was playing a gig there!
A real blast form the past to see that poster!
Think he lived in Laurel Canyon at one time too.

Re:Favorite Blues Musicians or Songs 2 Years, 7 Months ago  
Yes he lived in Laurel Canyon - Blues from Laurel Canyon a great album - others to hear before you (do the shopping) are Bluesbreakers (with Eric Clapton) otherwise known as the 'Beano' album, A Hard Road, Crusade, The Blues Alone, Diary of a Band, Bare Wires, Looking Back and The Turning Point - after that he got into jazz (USA Union, etc), good music but my interest went off the boil.

In the 1990's Gary Moore covered a lot of the songs from some of those previously mentioned albums during his 'blues' period and did a damn fine job too it has to be said.

.
Courtesy of Scott Miller and ER:

Son House and Michael Bloomfield discussing the blues. The latter is amusing in places.

There's also some footage of Paul Butterfield with his band.
