I'm one of those that is not afraid to say that I like a good number
of blues standards done over by blues rockers. Some I dig are:

Serves You Right To Suffer - The J. Geils Band
It Hurts Me Too - Foghat
Good Morning Little School Girl - Ten Years After
I Ain't Superstitious - Jeff Beck
Stormy Monday - The Allman Brothers Band

Killing Floor: Electric Flag.
Rock Me Baby: The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Crossroads: Cream.

I listened to the Jimi version twice yesterday. It's got more life than a 100
other boring versions put together.

As much as I am not a Clapton fan, he pretty much owns "Crossroads". I try to
get into Derek & The Dominos version of "Key To The Highway", but no one can
top Big Bill Broonzy's recording.

Other good cuts:

Born Under A Bad Sign - Rick Derringer
Boom Boom Out Go The Lights - Pat Travers
Hold What You Got - Jimmy Hall

Pat Travers did a nice "Born Under a Bad Sign" too. Nobody realizes the guy can really play! Is he still playing? Haven't heard anything about him in a long time.

Try to find any of the "L.A. Blues Authority" cds. Travers plays on those. He
might even have a cd of his own under that banner. Ive got two of them. Pat
plays "Cold Shot" on one and "The Sky Is Crying" on the other. Then at the end of each cd is a jam where all of the players (Travers. Jon Butcher, Kevin Russell, Leslie West, Tony Spinner, Frank Marino and others) all get to solo.

Jeff Healey's version of As The Years Go Passing By, off Cover To Cover, is a great one too

Jimmy James says:
The ABB -- One Way Out (originally by Sonny Boy Williamson)
Statesboro Blues (originally by Blind Willie McTell)
You Don't Love Me (originally by T-Bone Walker)

But there's also Dave Mason's live versions of St Louis Jimmy Oden's "Goin' Down Slow," and Dave's version of Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me."

The Doors version of "Crawlin' King Snake" takes the song to another level.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 11, 2009 2:01:36 PM PST
I have a suggestion .Its not exactly totally blues but close enogh.Supernatural Delite by Bluestone Company. Another band I would Highly rate is Plankton but they are not blues per say but have blues influences.

serves you right to suffer is also done by the great johnny winter, and in my opinion is by far the greatest

The Song -- "It's My Own Fault"

(4) B.B. King's live version is the classic;
(3) Otis Rush's studio version is a solid effort, and his live version is even better;
(2) Robben Ford's live version is excellent; but,
(1) Johnny Winter's live version is a MF'ing masterpiece !!

Jimmy James says:
The Song -- "Preachin' Blues"

(3) Son House's version is the classic;
(2) Derek Truck's version is a dark, brooding, ominous interpretation;
(1) Delta Moon's version with Gina Leigh on vocals is ecstatic, easily my favorite !!

Shannon Curfman's versions of
Eric Clapton,The Core. Shannon's version with Joe Bonamassa is amazing

Jimmy --

I've enjoyed many versions of You Don't Love Me but never the original. Where can I find the T-Bone version? I do have a 1994 version by Willie Cobbs (the acknowledged author) on Rooster's cd Down to Earth. Looking through the "liner notes", it says he also did the first recording. Regardless of that, I'd still like to hear T-Bone's version; it's a classic tune done so well so many times. Magic Sam, Mayall with Green, even Stephen Stills on Super Session.
