Elmore James - I Believe B/W I Held My Baby Last Night - Meteor 5000 MINT Blues
Elmore James follow up to "Dust My Broom" on Trumpet. It is the same song (as are most of his fast shuffles) as Robert Johnson's "Dust My Broom" but with a different title. "I Believe" and a few changes in the lyrics in this case. It's been said he only knew one song and three guitar breaks but he owned them and no one has yet to surpass his intensity of singing and playing slide guitar. I know there are dozens of blues greats Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters, B. B. King, Buddy Guy, the list goes on but for my money the finest exponent of real electric blues is Elmore James. Period!
