in the 1930s, the invention of Gibson's ES-150 - the first electric guitar - changed popular music forever, & volume 3 of this comprehensive series covers the fertile sixties.

The first generation of blues pioneers played acoustic instruments, but with the invention of amplification, guitar and harmonica players could be heard over the piano, drums & horns, rapidly revolutionising the genre. Blues historian & musicologist, Bill Dahl from Chicago, has produced an incredibly comprehensive history of electric blues, Each 3-CD set comes with a 160-page booklet including biographies, illustrations, original release info, & rare photos
