Overview

Elmore James (a former radio repairman) spent a good deal of time re-wiring his amplifiers, giving him a raw, distorted, and urgent sound on electric guitar that, coupled with his killer slide style, made him essentially the Godfather of modern electric guitar. This 21-track collection leads off with James' signature tune, a reworking of Robert Johnson's "Dust My Broom." The roaring slide riff from "Dust" is repeated many times on this set, since labels constantly demanded it, and James delivered it under a range of different titles, and amazingly, no one ever seems to get tired of it. Truthfully, James never recorded a lame track (even if dozens of them were variations on "Dust My Broom"), and that signature, roaring slide guitar sound will forever be his calling card.
