Elmore James
The Sky Is Crying - The Ultimate Collection

Elmore James - The Sky Is Crying - The Ultimate Collection

Elmore James is known as the “King of the Slide Guitar.” He was inspired by the local performances of Robert Johnson to take up the guitar. In fact, it was a number by Johnson ("Dust My Broom") that became James’ signature song and laid the foundation for his recording career. First cut by James in August 1951, “Dust My Broom” contains the strongest example of his stylistic signature: a swooping, full octave opening figure on slide guitar. His influence went beyond that one riff, however, as he has been credited with practically inventing blues rock by virtue of energizing primal riffs with a raw, driving intensity.
