How 'bout some blues?

"Evil" Howlin' Wolf

"Hoochie Coochie Man" Muddy Waters

"Comin' Home to You" Sonny Boy Williamson

Also, try some Little Walter. Maybe "Confessin' the Blues," "Roller Coaster" or "Juke." Even if you don't want blues for your CD, try to give him a listen. He's an American harmonica pioneer.

baba o riley doesnt have a harmonica, its called a synthesiser....but "not fade away" by the stones does

The live version of Baba O'Riley does indeed have Roger Daltry playing the violin part on harmonica at the end of the song. You can find it on "The Kids Are Alright."

Heres a fro for Sammy! :afro:
