A Whole Mess o' Bluesmen (A-M)

While driving this morning, I heard this song on 91.7fm Rice Radio, and decided right then to open up an Astral Headspace Juke Joint!

Mississippi John Hurt (1892?-1966) "Nobody's Dirty Business" ~

Rev. Gary Davis (1896-1972) "Death Don't Have No Mercy"

John Lee Hooker (1917-2001) "Boogie Chillun"

Lightnin' Hopkins (1912-1982) "Lonesome Road"

Son House (1902?-1988) "John the Revelator"

Elmore James (1918-1963) "Dust My Broom"

Mississippi John Hurt and Skip
Skip James (1902-1969) "Hard Time Killing Floor"

Blind Lemon Jefferson (1893-1929) "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean"

Robert Johnson
Robert Johnson (1911-1938) "Crossroad Blues"

Leadbelly (1888-1949) "Rock Island Line"

I'm no kind of Blues expert, so I went with classics or songs I knew, and especially focused on awesome stage names and iconic blues-style song titles.
