i got flamed for naming freddie king in a similar thread to this a few months ago. apparently he rates as texas blues despite having spent a lot of his life and career in chicago.

anyways, listen to freddie, i don't care what what category people put him in, he is essentially an electric city blues man.

'sweet home chicago' is a case in point.

^Yeah, Bishop & Bloomfield. Check out the Butterfield Blues Band.


Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, and Muddy Waters were a cooperative collection of kickass too.

Buddy Guy and Junior Wells.

Son Seals.

Lee Gates is another name that comes to mind, my Old Man blew harp with him once for a gig here in Wisconsin... Lee doesn't like harmonica players, but he liked my Old Man.

Everyone mentioned here is good, but I'd like to particularly pull out Jazz Funeral's suggestion of Buddy Guy and Junior Wells. Anything they do together is pure gold, IMO.

Lot of big names missing here! So....

- Freddy King (named by one user, and rightfully so - he's a Chicago blues man through and through. The west side is where he cut his teeth and built his sound.)

- John Little John

- Robert Nighthawk

- Eddie Taylor

- Hubert Sumlin

- Lefty Dizz
