I'm working on a compilation of ground-breaking blues songs...the original versions that set the course for subsequent blues, rock and pop tunes. The pre-War era was relatively easy, but I'm having some difficulty with the post-War era. Outside of Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson II and a few others, it seems the lion's share of innovative songs were either jump tunes (Louis Jordan) or early rock 'n' roll (Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry) numbers. I'm guessing much of this has to do with the dearth of blues recordings during WWII, and the subsequent rise of the big bands, but I'm not discounting that I may be overlooking some important tracks. Making the task even more difficult is that I'm only looking for "original" versions (never an easy task when it comes to blues). That means something like Muddy Waters' "Rollin' and Tumblin'" wouldn't be acceptable, but "I Can't Be Satisfied" would be. So, I'm turning to the experts here: What would you say were the most important, original post-War blues songs?
