Something Inside Of Me, by Elmore James (1960).
Early Grave, by Eddie Boyd (1964). For more by this late, great bluesman, check my archive for his Third Degree (6/29/2010) and Five Long Years (8/17/2010).
Pickin’ The Blues, by Memphis Minnie (1929). Lizzie Douglas, more commonly known as Memphis Minnie, was one of the most accomplished blues guitarists early on. Check out her technique on this number, one of her first recorded efforts.
Call My Name (Going On Down The Line), by Earl Hooker. No less an artist than B. B. King once said of Earl: “To me he is the best of modern guitarists. Period. With the slide he was the best. It was nobody else like him, he was just one of a kind.” Source: Sebastian Danchin via Wikipedia. Also, go to my archive to hear his Wah Wah Blues, my song of the day for May 19, 2011.
Something To Remember You By, by Eddie “Guitar Slim” Jones (1926-1959). About a year ago, I blogged Guitar Slim’s biggest hit, The Things That I Used To Do, a 1956 number that featured Ray Charles on piano.
