Show #597: Elmore James Centennial!


January 27 is the 100th birth anniversary of bluesman Elmore James, and we'll celebrate it on Adventures in Sound that day!

Originally from Chicago, James began recoding in 1951 with the classic "Dust My Broom."  (He rerecorded it several times over the years). 

We'll hear many classics from James, and some of his influences, too!
