Product Description

Rarely has the primal excitement of the electric blues guitar been so voraciously and expertly illustrated on one compilation than on Screaming And Crying, renowned British blues buff Neil Slaven s monumental homage to the music which shaped both his life and a whole generation. Over three discs and 75 tracks, the set straddles the spectrum of the electrified blues which fuelled the British R&B boom of the 1960s and beyond, mixing much-feted names such as Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley with more deliciously obscure outings by the likes of Doctor Ross and Guitar Shorty. Slaven s liner notes outline the story behind the roughshod classics which bust out of the set, whether screaming with the joy of musical release, or crying in a pool of despair, both amplified through jacked-up guitar strings. Selections are explained using a thread which shows how the trail-blazing T-Bone Walker (represented by tracks which avoid overlap with Fantastic Voyage s much-lauded T-Bone collection You re My Best Poker Hand, FVTD099) influenced the likes of Pee Wee Crayton, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Johnny Copeland and Johnny Guitar Watson, whose aptly-named Space Guitar was obviously a big influence on Hendrix (as were many of the names on show). Noted guitar abusers are present and incorrect, including over-loading Pat Hare in James Cotton s band, Johnny Otis Pete Guitar Lewis distorting through Midnight In The Barrel House , while the mighty John Lee Hooker and Elmore James display their inimitable axe attacks on several outings. The fearsome triumvirate of Kings - B.B., Albert and Freddie - get three tracks apiece, as do Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry, whose lesser-known Mad Lad is a lesson in controlled virtuosity. Other guitarists very much plugged in through the fifties to the sixties include Buddy Guy, Little Milton, Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Tiny Grimes, Earl Hooker, Hop Wilson, Magic Sam, Lowell Fulson, Jimmy Reed s Eddie Taylor, Mickey Baker, Guitar Slim, Goree Carter and Ike Turner (showing how underrated his savage guitar style was). Neil Slaven has constructed a veritable dizzbuster of a collection, exuding the kind of glow and continuity which can only come from knowledge and passion. As he says in his notes, Some of these recordings have become cornerstones of a long life and not one of them has diminished with the ensuing years. That s something for you to look forward to.

Format: Audio CD
This is a lot of music for just under a tenner - 75 "masterpieces" by 35 "blues guitar heroes" on 3 CDs. The selection concentrates very much on post-war electric blues of the 50s, 60s and 70s and and all your favourites and major players - B.B., Albert and Freddie King, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Lowell Fulson, T-Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley - are here. We also get a good selection of 'second division' players including Johnny Guitar Watson, Guitar Slim, Eddie Taylor, Magic Sam, Little Milton, Johnny Copeland and Clarence Gatemouth Brown. There are also some slightly more obscure (overlooked?) players Tiny Grimes, Morris Pejoe, Hop Wilson, Rudy Green, Lafayette Thomas etc as well as a couple of tracks that I personally wouldn't have included on a 'guitar' compilation - such as Doctor Ross, who is an excellent one-man band and harmonica player but hardly an outstanding guitarist.

As with most compilations the selections are shaped by what tracks are available to the compilers - in this case the renowned Neil Slaven - and so I think that while the tracks that represent Freddie King are excellent, clearly some of his best work, the tracks for B.B. and Albert King while OK are not their best or most representative work. Again you could argue on who has been included and who has been left out (Hubert Sumlin, Lightnin' Hopkins, Albert Collins, Robert Cray etc) but overall this collection contains some great music and is a really good introduction to the electric blues. As someone who has been listening to blues for over 40 years I still found this an enjoyable listen, it included some all-time classics as well as many tracks I hadn't heard before (Mad Lad by Chuck Berry), although invevitably there were also quite a few tracks that I already own.

This three piece cd set incorporates all the early blues that influenced the great British blues movement in the sixties. Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Peter Green, John Mayall, Rolling Stones and many many more. What's more the popularity of British Blues started to make names like Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Bo Diddley, Elmore James, T-bone Walker, Albert King, Otis Rush, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Guitar Shorty household names otherwise they were a minority in the music world and found their fame mainly in the U.K. thanks to the upsurge of British Blues. Of course after their fame in the U.K. the U.S.A. stood up and took notice.
This cd set has them all here and is an excellent way of introducing yourself to the blues and also here are a lot of the songs that influenced our stars of British Blues. A very informative and entertaining 3 cd set.

good mix of this genre -worth including if you are a listener to many different genres. Maybe not for the purist.
