Essential Blues Guitar

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Essential Blues Guitar is a celebratory collection of swamp blues, electric blues, and modern blues, and an excellent honor to the guitar -- the instrument that made the blues genre one of the 20th century's jubilant sounds. This stunning two-disc compilation, a sister release to the House of Blues label's Essential Blues Harmonica, showcases famous cuts from Big Joe Williams, Robert Nighthawk, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, and Buddy Guy, as well as rarities from Earl Hooker and Otis Rush. A 24-page book, detailed liner notes, and great pictures are also included.
