    I'll second that. As good as some guys are from a technical standpoint sometimes their tone just kills me. Roy Buchanan is a prime example. I just can't stand how his guitar sounds. Derrick Trucks is another one and I love the ABB. Too bad because I admire both for their talent. But Earl's tone is beautiful. Big and powerful yet warm and fluid too. Love the guy.

    Don't know if you all consider George Thorogood a blue's artist, but I kinda like his stuff.

    How bout some Samantha Fish? Best viewed live, great stage presence.
    The CD reviews on Amazon mention bad mastering, so check out YouTube, bunches there if you like her.

    The more I think about it, the more I think this might be the perfect answer for those who love stuff like SRV. Magic Sam was a giant, IMO.

    I'm also going to throw this one out there. I'm not usually big on tribute albums, but the Hound Dog Taylor one is solid. Some of the previous posts have brought up guys who are on it. It's worth the purchase for the Govt Mule song alone.
    Not all tracks are rippin', but many are. Oh, and skip the reviewers bit about the Thorogood track. It's not a stand out, but it's not as bad as he says. Calling it "thuggish" is a bit much, IMO.

    Yep.......... Her LPs sound better than her CDs. My nephew, Phil Breen, is her keyboard player. We see them about twice a year when they are in or around the Philadelphia area. Wife tells me they are in Europe (primarily the UK this trip) for about a month. They spend about 50% of their tour-time in EU countries.
