Another way to expand your learning experience is to create a custom radio station on Pandora. It's free. I just 'seeded' a custom radio station with Matchbox Blues by Blind Lemon Jefferson and although it won't play the song you want immediately, it will play similar stuff. The station I just created is now playing Terraplane Blues by Robert Johnson.[Edit: Here's a tune that should be mandatory listening for students of early American music: Stealin' by the Memphis Jug Band.]

There are some pretty charts showing who gets what when you buy a CD and a description of where your iTunes money goes.
