Elmore James was undoubtedly the most influential slide guitarist ever to play the blues. From the 1950s to the early '60s, he recorded a long string of tunes that would become blues classics, including "The Sky is Crying," "Dust My Broom," and "Rollin' and Tumblin'." They would be covered for decades to come, by countless blues and rock artists, but you can hear them in their original form on this 20-track collection, which offers a solid introduction into the work of this blues pioneer.
