We knows nothing much about the blues... we called it blues, we called it breakdowns, we called it blues and some people say it's square dances... We didn't know what it was; the achin'-hearted blues is slow, breakdowns is fast - Percy Thomas, who played in the Son Simms Four with Muddy Waters, interviewed by Paul Oliver, from Blues Off The Record

Stumbled on this old thread. After 6 pages of replies there are so many great tunes already suggested, but here are a handful that I don't believe were on the list. They are essential to me:

1) Robert Wilkins - I'll Go with Her
2) Sleepy John Estes - Special Agent
3) Blind Willie McTell - Scarey Day Blues
4) Kokomo Arnold - The Twelves (Dirty Dozens) & Paddlin' Madeline
5) Joe Callicott - Fare Thee Well
6) Peg Leg Howell - Turtle Dove
7) Willie Reed - Dreaming Blues
8) Otto Virgial - Little Girl in Rome
9) Mance Lipscomb - Freddie
10) Fred McDowell - Kokomo
