The Great American Music Co.


Released: 28th Jun 2012


one of blues guitar's leading post-war innovators, His tortured, vibrato-soaked vocal delivery was every bit as riveting as his fiery fretwork.

The infinitely influential slide guitar attack of Elmore James was rooted in one immortal lick, a crashing, shangety-shang barrage that he first unfurled on record on his 1951 classic 'Dust My Broom.' But great & powerful as 'Dust My Broom' is, it's by no means the only reason Elmore is so revered. His blistering slide technique inspired a small legion of Chicago disciples. limited to 500 copies, This LP is a collection of songs appearing on vinyl for the first time in decades.
