Stevie Ray Vaughan
SRV drug free and sober in 1989. All of SRV's albums are excellent, this one just happens to be my favorite.
Recorded in Florida in 2000, does a credible job of conveying the live Walter Trout experience. Besides... I was there. Read my full review of this CD at http://www.electricblues.com/archive/2000/livetrout.html

Gary was one of the first hard rock guitarists to cross over to the blues with the release of this CD in 1990, and it still sets the standard for all that follow. Read my full review of this CD at http://www.electricblues.com/archive/1999/stillgot.html
Johnny Winter is at his best on this 1976 live recording, as he cranks through a set of Rock 'n Roll, blues-rock, and blues. This album also shows why Johnny is considered one of the best slide guitarists of all time. Read my full review of this CD at http://www.electricblues.com/archive/2000/capturedlive.html
Released in 1997, this CD features SRV/Hendrix style songs, but done only as Melvin can do them. Amazing speed and precision, and excellent wah-wah work. Read my full review of this CD at http://www.electricblues.com/archive/1998/dirtypool.html
