One of the most important and influential figures on the post war blues scene, singer, guitarist and songwriter Elmore James was the unchallenged king of the electric slide guitar, updating the legacy of the country blues to post-war Chicago. His music, and particularly his guitar playing, has been a major source of inspiration for countless blues and rock musicians over the years. Eric Clapton, Duane Allman and Jimi Hendrix are just a few of the rock legends who have acknowledged his influence. This collection includes every complete master he recorded at his last 2 sessions for Bobby Robinson's Fire/Fury Label in New York City in February 1963, just 3 months before his untimely death from a heart attack at the age of 45. Packaged in a digipak. Charly.
