Greetings,

If you love Howlin' Wolf and are looking for more classic 50's electric blues, then I would think Muddy Waters might be a logical next step.  There are many, many great records for Chess back in the 50's/60's, his original Greatest Hits has many classics.  But if you really want LOUD I would suggest his late 1970's stuff done with Johnny Winter and his band.  Hard Again is my personal fave... if you don't like the version of Mannish Boy on this, you need to have your ears checked... :)

I believe San Antone had several blues threads here a long while back, you might want to search for those for recommendations as well...

For a singer somewhat reminiscent of Wolf, try Tail Dragger, sometimes known as Tail Dragger Jones. Wolf himself gave him the nickname. Still alive (in his 80s), he used to sit in for Wolf. I wouldn't say he sounds similar to Wolf (I wouldn't say anybody sounds similar to Wolf), but he has a very powerful, gravelly voice that's very much his own, just as Wolf did. I think he took over Wolf's band after his death, or at least employed many of his players from it.

He didn't record until late in life, so it's not an expansive back catalogue. There's also a Delmark live DVD that's a lot of fun. (I think it was also released as a CD. Get the DVD instead if it's in print.)

On the more guitar-oriented side of things, try Blyther Smith. Great voice though it's more mainstream that Wolf's or Tail Dragger's. I think his 1981 Hold that Train album is a blues classic, or at least a lesser-known gem. I've heard a few albums by him and none of them were bad, but everything just works in a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts way on this one. (There's also a live Delmark DVD by him as well.)

He just passed less than a year ago, aged 89.

By the way, are you familiar with Elmore James? If not, go there first.
