This essential LP release includes the cream of the crop of Elmore James’ inimitable discography – 20 superb recordings from the peak of the blues legend’s career. Although James had been on the scene since 1939, he recorded the lion’s share of his finest work between the early ‘50s and ‘60s, for different labels like Trumpet, Flair, Kent, Chief, Chess, and Fire Records. Including here are 20 blues classics like his signature tune “Dust My Broom" (an electric updating of Robert Johnson's "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom"), as well as classic numbers like “Shake Your Moneymaker,” “Standing at the Crossroads,” and the soulful ballad ”The Sky Is Crying.” (The latter tune has become a blues standard, performed by many artists, such as Eric Clapton, Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and The Allman Brothers Band, to name a few.) The aforementioned tracks, and other great songs, have been included on this remastered collector’s edition. This is a solid introduction to one of the post-war blues' biggest icons.
Recorded between 1951 and 1961.
