No 2 is Mississippi John Hurt - although I have the same tracks on an album with a different title.

1 sounds like a Blind Willie Johnson reissue, although I know not which.
2 will be the 1928 Okeh sides by Mississippi John Hurt. I have the title of Columbia CK 64986 as Avalon Blues, but there must have been other reissues under similar names
3 is presumably by The Cream.
4 I think must be Bukka White.
5 is probably Taj Mahall
6 sounds very like Charley Patton
7 James Brown?
8 Sleepy John Estes
9 Skip James
10 is Leadbelly. Probably Rounder CD 1044, but I'm sure the name appeared on one of his LP reissues
11 Koko Taylor
12 Fred McDowell
13 Wouldn't even like to guess
14 Muddy Waters
15 Should that be West Side Soul. If so Magic Sam
16. No idea
17. (I think) James Cotton
18 Any number of contenders. Most likely candidate I'v got is a reissue of Son House's 1941-42 Library of Congress recordings. Arpeggio ARB 004
19 Dunno
20 Seasick Steve
21 Too obvious to be a cheapo Robert Johnson reissue. However, Johnny Shines issued a CD under that name, and I think maybe Elmore James did too.
22 I've got nothing under that title by Little Walter, or anyone else. However, he did record a song of that title for Chess. So I'd guess it must be him.
23 Should that be Jake Head BOOGIE? If so, Lightning Hopkins recorded a song of that title, presumably for Goldband. It's on an ACE LP called The Fifties - Juke Joint Blues.
24 Rings absolutely no bells at all.
25 As 24
26 Again not one I can identify, but Rev Gary Davis recorded it several times, so I'd guess it's him.
27. Revolver? The only record of that title I've ever come across was by some Liverpool beat group or other. Or have I missed something?
28 Robert Cray.
29 Dunno.
30 John Mayall?

17 right. The ones I've put as wrong are only because they are not the artists I have as recorded these albums, some may also have recorded albums with these titles as well.
