    Favorite...performer....song...style.

    As a lad I could get Chicago stations on a clear night and would stay up all hours of the night listening to the Blues. In the early 60's I started listening to British blues. John Mayall where I first discovered Clapton along with Page. Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac was among my favorites as well.

    Billie Holiday is in my top 5 performers. To many songs to pinpoint one.

    "Train to Nowhere" Savoy Brown is a fine Lp with Chris Youlden on vocals. I enjoy Howlin Wolf 's London Sessions. If you like the Blues you'll need to listen to EC's From The Cradle. Mike Bloomfield is a fine performer as well.

    like everyone you mentioned here.....how about....

    Willie Dixon....IMO if not the best composer of the blues at least top 3......

    Howlin Wolf....

    Buddy Guy......one hell of a guitar player.....

    catch Michael Bloomfield's guitar solo in the song "I Got A Mind To Give Up Living" on the EAST-WEST LP by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.....FUCKING INTENSE.....
