Although there is nothing previously unreleased on this album, the sound quality is astoundingly improved having been mastered from newly-discovered session master tapes. Elmore James was at his peak at this time and the visceral power of his singing and playing is all the more remarkable for his off-stage shyness and fragility. His band, the Broom Dusters, and the Maxwell Davis Orchestra, provide magnificent support.
Blues After Hours, with its distinctively sexy album cover, came out on Modern's mid-price Crown label in 1960 and comprised a carefully programmed 10-track selection of singles, including 4 B-sides, that had come out in 1954 and 1955 on the Flair subsidiary, all taken from two sessions (in Modern's own studio in Culver City, Los Angeles CA, in August-September 1954; and in J&M Studios, New Orleans LA in August 1955), except for Dark And Dreary, which came from an August 1953 session at Universal Studios, Chicago IL.
The CD is fleshed out with eight bonus tracks including the other singles from the same sessions and a further five recordings from various Chicago sessions of the period that were unreleased at the time, all in super re-vamped sound

This is easily the best quality sounding Elmore James CD I've ever heard. Apparently the original master tapes were re-discovered recently deep in the vaults of Crown records and this is them in all their glory.
There is none of the ever present reverb on Elmore's vocals and the Broomdusters sound crisper and clearer than ever before.
If you're looking for just one Elmore james CD - this is it. If you're a big Elmore James fan then buy this - you won't be disappointed by this excellent CD.

Much better value than the LP because of bonus tracks!
For me this version of 'Dust My Blues' (Broom) is the best version.Excellent sound quality.
