5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Elmore James, 3 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Definitive Elmore James (Audio CD)
This double cd set includes the complete Elmore James recordings as lead vocalist from 1951 (starting with the original recording of "DUST MY BROOM") to 1957, as well as 7 where he was a mere guitarist - 4 instrumental tracks, 2 tracks by singer Little Johnny Jones, and one with vocals by J.T.Brown. EJ wrote or co-wrote no less than 26 of the 41 tracks.
Here are the original EJ recordings of "STANDING AT THE CROSSROADS", "IT HURTS ME TOO" and "DUST MY BROOM", all of which he re-recorded between 1959 and 1963.
More great news - all 41 tracks are in recording date order!
I highly recommend this excellent, value for money, product.

I hope you are can access this link and find the information you require.
Cheers

Thanks for the review Colin! Which collection do you think works best as a complement that covers the rest of his career 1958 to 1963?

Hi Magnus,
I'd go for the 3 cd set "For Collectors Only - Complete Fire & Enjoy Recordings". As far as I can see this covers all EJ's recordings from 1958 until his death in 1963 apart from a handful he recorded for Chess in April 1960. And it looks like they're in recording date order. If you buy it please let me know what you think of it by posting a review.
Cheers
Colin

Thanks for the tip-off Colin,
If I do buy it I might write a review.

Cheers back to you!
Magnus.
