Also Paul Rogers - Muddy Water Blues - great album. The first track starts quietly and then it just explodes and you have to get up and move. To be played at full volume. Bugger the neighbours.
I will try to contain myself… TRY….
(In no particular order)
John Lee Hooker
R. L. Burnside
Had to stop…
I had a blues-gasm just from trying to compile an admittedly and grossly incomplete list!
Madonna (Just making sure you're still with me! )
The Black Keys (Mmmmmm! Tasty! Get Chulahoma you will not soon stop playing it!!!)
The Stone Foxes (rock/blues blend new band)
Good piece of Paul Rodger's various ventures....
The Utimate Blues - John Lee Hooker and Guests
Eric Clapton - Crossroads
Jimi Hendrix - Red House/Voodoo Chile
Muddy Waters - Mannish Boy
Edgar Winter & White Trash - Roadwork
Johnny Winter (he released a 3 sided album - side 4 blank ?)
ZZ Top - Just Got Paid Today/La Grange
Albert King Live at Fillmore East
Sonny Boy Williamson...fabulous blues harp !
Blodwyn Pig - late 60s British blues rock group
..... and so on into infinity !
Can we perhaps just rewind for a second, to the subject of Blues-gasms ??

I like Sara Connor's music. Christmas in My Heart is my favourite.
Rory Gallagher- 'Deuce' (1971)
Gary Moore- Blues Alive (1993)
Robin Trower- Live in Sweden (1975)
Only three of a vast ocean of great blues records I could sit all night and list :)

"But me and you were not to blame
Love always returns from where it came
Back to black and in the end,
It's all the same."- Terry Allen 'Back to Black' 1996
One of the best blues/blues-rock artists I've heard is Jeff Healey. I think the Jeff Healey Band is quite under-rated and Healey himself was exceptionally talented considering he was blind. I'm not that into blues but I love this guy, my favorite track of his is 'See the Light' from his album of the same name.
Listen to the wind blow,Watch the sun rise,Runnin' in the shadows.Damn your love, Damn your lies,
Charles Mingus's "Blues and Roots" doesn't exactly fit in the "blues" genre, but Mingus does completely dissect the art of the blues and converts it into jazz
An expanded version of Junior Wells' Hoodoo Man Blues was just released - this is an incredible album and should be a part of every person's blues collection
