    It is a long list.
    Definitely a long list for great blues artists. I recall Johnny doing something with Son Seals too. I have the remastered Black Album. You want to get a copy of the special edition of Second Winter Legacy Edition which has two extra tracks and a whole extra disk which is a concert at Royal Albert Hall.

    Gary Moore is one of my favorites. Check out his tone in the solo near the end of the song. Bliss!

    There are many people who made the blues just a wonderful form of music. But I don't think that anyone did more for the blues than Willie Dixon. Willie played bass, wrote many of the great blues tunes of the 50's and 60's. Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters, the two giants of that era, vied for his songs. Plus he was a great producer of recorded music; truly a legend.

    Here is a tune from Willie Dixon "The Chess Box". This is a great pair of CDs that shows off Willie and some of the blues giants performing his songs. This song that I have chosen is Willie doing his own tune. It's called "Walkin the Blues". I love this song.

    Note that the bass player in this early Johnny Winter band later played bass for SRV.
