Floyd Jones (July 21, 1917 – December 19, 1989) was an American blues singer, guitarist and songwriter, who is significant as one of the first of the new generation of electric blues artists to record in Chicago after World War II. A number of Jones' recordings are regarded as classics of the Chicago blues idiom, and his song "On The Road Again" was a top ten hit for Canned Heat in 1968.
Robert Lockwood, Jr., also known as Robert Junior Lockwood, (March 27, 1915 – November 21, 2006) was an American blues guitarist who recorded for Chess Records among other Chicago labels in the 1950s and 1960s. He is best known as a longtime collaborator with Sonny Boy Williamson II, and for his work in the mid 1950s with Little Walter Jacobs.
Little Buddy Doyle
Born probably 20 march 1911 Forest City, AR, USA
Diminutive Memphis (Beale)street-singer and guitarist. He recorded eight sides there in 1939 with the young Walter Horton as the probable harmonica player.
An obscure Delta blues player from Mississippi, Willie "Poor Boy" Lofton falls loosely into the Charley Patton/Tommy Johnson blues camp. His voice was eerily similar to Johnson's, and his most striking song was a version of Johnson's "Big Road Blues," called "Dark Road Blues," which featured Lofton's staccato guitar style, which again appears to have been drawn at least partially from Johnson.
Despite a relatively prolific recording career which yielded upwards of 40 solo sides in addition to a series of celebrated collaborations with vocalist Lucille Bogan, pianist/singer Walter Roland remains one of the blues' most elusive and mysterious figures.
Johnny Young (January 1, 1918 – April 18, 1974) was an American blues singer, mandolin player and guitarist, significant as one of the first of the new generation of electric blues artists to record in Chicago after the Second World War, and as one of the few mandolin players to have been active in blues music in the post-war era. His nickname, "Man", came from his use of the mandolin.
Lazy Bill Lucas (May 29, 1918 - December 11, 1982) was an American blues musician, who was part of the birth of the Chicago blues scene during the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s, before taking his talents to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and becoming an important part of that city's blues history until his death.
