The roots of electric blues came out of necessity rather than deliberate styling when acoustic musicians made the transition to urban bars and found their sound was unable to be heard in the raucous venues. Enter the amplifier and after 'plugging in', the sound that we now know was born. 'Electric Blues' is a collection of some of the finest tracks and defining moments in the early days of the genre. With contributions from the likes of Muddy Waters, B.B King, John Lee Hooker plus many more, these 50 digitally remastered tracks will take you back to the smoky bars and juke joints where it all began!
