Could I get some suggestions on beginner's blues songs, in other words ones that are more widely liked? Seeing a wall-like list of artists is intimidating and I'm looking to listen to some more bluesy music in conjunction with exploring the genre on guitar.

I errantly posted a request outside of this thread and was "reported", so I'll repost it here.

I've been really enjoying some "newer" (relative) upbeat swing stuff like Zoot Suit Riot and Brian Setzer Jump, Jive and Wail.

Can anybody recommend some other songs/artists in that style?

I wouldn't say Miles' fusion recordings were "acid jazz" per se, though one can assume at least some of the personnel involved through Miles' fusion years were tripping in any literary and metaphorical capacity. but I guess "On the Corner" would be recommendation.

In fact, I highly recommend Bill Laswell's remix of some of the tracks from that album in his suitably chemicalized tribute to Miles' in his Panthalassa album

On a separate note for any of those who might not be familiar with the work of Ernest Ranglin, I highly recommend the albums "Below the Bassline" and "Modern Answers to Old Problems" featuring Tony Allen of Fela Kuti's Africa 70 on drums.

hey guys, could anyone recommend me some musicians similar to Floyd Council or Pink Anderson?

I stumbled upon them when looking into the meaning behind pink floyd, and I have to say Pink Anderson especially has amazed.

thanks
