Rene Hall is quite possibly the most underrated musician in America's pop and blues history.
As a guitarist he is certainly amongst the very best and is as equally important as an arranger and conductor on myriad classic pop, rock and R&B recordings to come out of Los Angeles.
Jasmine have chosen to feature as many of Rene's recordings released under his own name as possible at the expense of his contributions to scores of hit records that are easily available today on digital services, CD and vinyl.
Covering just one decade of his career in the studio from 1950 - 1960 these 29 excellent recordings run the gamut of Blues, Jazz and Rock and Roll.
Hopefully this compilation may in some small way redress the balance bringing this man's remarkable career back into the perspective it so truly deserves.
