The Definitive Elmore James
on 3 November 2010
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.
