During the '80s, several blues revivalists, who primarily played Delta and Mississippi blues, decided to amplify what essentially was a country form. Structurally, there was no change from the original country blues; it was simply electrified, and not very loudly at that. It was a rare occasion that country blues was electrified -- most revivalists preferred to stick to the original acoustic form -- but when it was, the only difference was its (albeit subtle) amplification.
