Album Review

James, Elmore – “Final Sessions, The” – [Charly Music Ltd.]

Cousin Mary   4/5/2010   Blues, CD

These tracks were recorded in 1963, just a short time before the death of Elmore James, who was sometimes known as the “King of Slide Guitar”. James experimented with electronics to make his groundbreaking sound, and many musicians such as the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones considered him an inspiration and influence.

Excellent guitar and moving vocals, most backup musicians are unknown. Solid, meaningful blues.

PGM: Track 22’s interview contains language.
