Radio repairman Elmore James 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 the Godfather of modern electric guitar, and few gunslingers can match his intensity or powerful, dirty sound (even when armed with a train-load of stomp boxes). This double-disc set provides plenty of evidence and it also shows James' versatility as he toys a bit with jazz and R&B forms, but it is that signature, roaring slide guitar sound that will forever be his calling card, and when it hits the speakers it explodes like a force of nature. You'll hear it everywhere in this interesting set. ~ Steve Leggett
