Various Artists, Strange Angels (The Songs Of Elmore James)

An interesting take on the songs of Elmore James in celebration of what would have been his 100th birthday. A stellar array of music’s finest get together to rock out to some classic tunes.

Overall, I’d have to say that it was a bit too guitar-hero for my tastes, and I’d always prefer to go back to the original, but there were a few tracks where something quite different came through and it’s still a fine homage to a blues master.
