King of the slide

Moving from one great guitar player to another. Elmore James. This man is often referred to as "the king of the slide guitar". I don't want to get into the discussion if he really is the greatest slide guitar player ever, but he definitely is the one who made slide on the electric guitar to what it is today. This album is a complilation of some of the stuff he recorded for the Fire label between 1959 and 1961. And believe me...It is hot stuff. Listing to this man play. But take your time to listen to his lyrics as well. Beautifully and powerful lyrics combined with his guitar made this man to what he is today. One of the great legends of Blues.
Please listen to the wonderful "Dust my broom". There is something odd about this song. I'll get back to you on that.
