Having studied and absorbed British blues over the last decade or so, I’m now feeling increasingly drawn to the roots in early American blues. Never really crossed paths with Elmore James much except Bleeding Heart by way of Hendrix. I started doing a YouTube search last week and loved what I was hearing. But I’ve learned that diving into an American blues catalog isn’t the same as doing a deep dive into, say, The Who. Those early blues guys often had chaotic recording schedules, and it can be difficult to piece it together into a coherent linear story. So I’m asking for subject matter experts - what do you think are the essential Elmore James tracks (esp for the slide playing even if the song isn’t the strongest)? And while we’re at it, would love to know about good covers of his work as well. Thanks all!
