Tough call. It’s shifted through the years. It was once a tossup between Eddie”clean head” Vinson’s “Just a Dream” and his “Back Door Blues”. I prefer the renditions with Cannonball Adderly’s group backing him up. Nowadays it’s probably the fantastic Glasgow 95 festival rendition of “5 Long Years” by Clapton. The guitar work is un believable. Stevie Ray Vaughn’s Texas Flood is another biggie for me.

Blues Run the Game by Jackson C. Frank is my favorite at the moment.

John Lee Hooker’s Tupelo is right up there. It’s haunting, and close to perfection in it’s simplicity.

Maybe Smokestack Lightning
Hard to say because there are so many good songs in that genre.
