Try the Blue Hart Trio on Mapleshade Records, you might also look at the Burnside Records catalog, they have quite a few good acoustic blues.
The biggest problem with acoustic blues is recording quality, which is why I suggested the Mapleshade stuff first.
Csericks suggested Cephas & Wiggins, they have at least one thing recorded on Chesky, which is pretty good.
Weirdly enough some Hot Tuna and Jorma Kaukonen (sp?) fall into this category and you can find good quality recordings of them.
I have been watching this thread for a few days. The problem is that I loaned my most recent Muddy Waters aquisition to a friend and I only just got it back today.
It is called 'Muddy & the Wolf'
guest artists include Eric clapton, steve Winwood, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, Paul Betterfield, Mike Bloomfield, Otis Spann, Hubert sumlin, and Dick Lunn.
It is another Chess recording released on MCA. It was released in 1983 with the London Howlin Wolf Sessions. Great stuff. You won't be disappointed!
