• Goree CARTER - His Guitar, His Hepcats and his rocking Rhythm Orchestra - Let's Rock Awhile, 1949-1951

Goree Carter was one of the great blues guitarists to emanate from the state of Texas. His playing style was influenced by T-Bone Walker from which he carved his own sound in an attempt to go off in his own direction.

Although Goree's career and success was limited he obviously kept the jukebox operators and consumers happy and released a steady stream of great singles which can be heard here. Most notably is 'Rock Awhile' which has gone on to be one of those recordings that 'experts' like to cite as 'the first rock and roll record'.

Jasmine has done a superb job with this 28 track collection showcasing one of the long-forgotten greats of Texas blues and blues in general. This exciting set will keep new and old fans of the genre happy indeed.
