Electric Blues Box set
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The roots of electric blues came out of necessity rather than deliberate styling when acoustic musicians made the transition to urban bars and found their sound was unable to be heard in the raucous venues. Enter the amplifier and after 'plugging in', the sound that we now know was born. 'Electric Blues' is a collection of some of the finest tracks and defining moments in the early days of the genre. With contributions from the likes of Muddy Waters, B.B King, John Lee Hooker plus many more, these 50 digitally remastered tracks will take you back to the smoky bars and juke joints where it all began!

As I get older I keep finding myself listening to the Blues more and more and although I do already have quite a few tracks out of these fifty presented here, I haven’t got them all and not necessarily by the artiste playing them here. Of course there are many types of Blues but probably nowadays, most people instantly think of this particular sub-genre as it has become so popular. Bringing electric guitars and amps to the Blues was really a way so that it could be better heard at venues, but it then sort of grew from there, giving a certain distinct sound, especially when you have artistes such as T-Bone Walker, who came from playing predominantly Jazz before hitting the Blues scene.
This compilation would be great as an introduction to someone relatively new to the Blues, and especially the Electric Blues. In all this is great to listen to.
and the cd was very noisy in the drive - which again, may be down to my machine !!
