Robert Lockwood Jr, he has a few solo acoustic recordings where he plays out of B, check out "Western Horizon" on the Plays Robert & Robert record, he did a few other tunes with pretty much the same arrangement, such as "Driving Wheel" (off one of the 70s Trix LPs) if memory serves me correctly.

Haven't found any mention of Joe McMurrian on here so I thought I'd post the two clips he's got on youtube for anyone who might be interested.

Definitely not traditional country blues, but...  Related anyway.  Sorry if this is the wrong place for this.
He mostly plays with an electric quartet (bass, drums, harp).  Not really my thing, but all excellent musicians.
I LOVE the first clip which I believe is an original.  His "Last Fair Deal" is interesting, but it doesn't do it for me like the first one.  Worth posting anyway I figured.  Dude's got some unique chops.
I really, really hope he puts out a solo and/or all acoustic album someday.

A good smattering of country blues videos in the 93 this guy has uploaded.  The kind of player that makes you think you should take up stamp collecting instead.  All videos aimed at both hands.  Great voice too.  Sample "Hesitation Blues" and "The Girl from Ipanema" ..at least... 

He prohibits embedding his videos - so here is a listing of all.

This guy Fretkillr Slack mentioned is amazing (thanks)!  I've been back for 3 days now, and I think I've listened to most of his 93.  He's one of Youtube's finest...that's for sure!  Don't miss Greenback Dollar or Jugband (sp).

Not country blues, but arguably a distant relative - check out the YouTube videos by Japanese Hawaiian swing band (I kid you not) the Sweet Hollywaiians.

- is one, but there's a few others you'll see there as well.

Somehow I missed seeing Louie Bluie, so thanks for posting this. Does anybody know what happened to his Bible of Pornography? Was it ever reproduced and published? If not we should put our coins together and make it a Weenie publishing venture. It looks like mmm, mmm over an' out! Yank Rachel doing Diving Duck Blues is IT baby!

I have a friend who's an art book publisher, if anyone is in contact with Armstrong's heirs and they're interested, I'd love to get this happening.

At the time of Armstrong's death there was word going around that his heirs were trying to get the bible back, that it had been used to pay off some debts.  I won't mention names, because i cannot confirm if this was true - and I don't know if it was ever resolved.  Someone would probably need to contact Howard's spouse (I've forgotten her name).

I have two wonderful You Tubes here:

[stream=475,325]http://youtube.com/watch?v=jmmMv22Srpg[/stream]

Japenese version of House of the Rising Sun by Chiaki Naomi

[stream=475,325]http://youtube.com/watch?v=d7cNtjQW4Mc[/stream]

Ang?lique Kidjo singing Summertime in, I think, in Yoruba.

I know that Summertime isn't really Country Blues, but I really like this clip.

There is a great tradition of Japanese vocal music.
iTunes has the record Japan: Traditional Vocal & Instrumental Music on the Nonesuch Explorer Series
with the great Ayako Handa, one of the great singers period! I challenge you not to be deeply moved by her performence here. Talk about soul!

Added Japan: Traditional Vocal & Instrumental Music that you recommended Mr. O'Muck after listening to Handa on YouTube to my already long laundry list of CDs that I want to purchase at some point in time.

Work at home, but have been busy trying to meet a heavy deadline.  Listened to your music from your MySpace page to help things speed along & it worked.
