Elmore James - Rollin' And Slidin' (CD)
Release Date: 05/06/14
Elmore James is one of the most important artists in the history and development of the Blues. With his slide guitar, his metallic voice and thumbing bass line, Elmore James embodied the essence of Chicago Blues in the heydays of Blues music in the 1950's. His version of Dust My Broom has remained one of the most enduring Blues classics of all times, and he's effectively been credited with inventing Blues-Rock by virtue of electrifying primal riffs with a raw, driving intensity. Throughout his career Elmore James wrote and recorded a number of immortal songs which have since come to be regarded as Blues classics, and were covered by The Rolling Stones, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, The Allman Bros, Eric Clapton, Steve Ray Vaughan and George Thorogood.
