• Pee Wee CRAYTON'S Golden Decade - Texas Hop and Selected Singles As & Bs, 1947-1957

Here Jasmine Records have another tribute to the great Texas blues guitarists this time focusing on Pee Wee Crayton.

As with many Texas blues guitarists he was influenced by T-Bone Walker. However unlike many other T-Bone followers he managed to imbue his style with considerably more original elements which gave him an enviable chart run in the late 1940s.

Includes his singles recorded for Gru V Tone, Modern, Recorded in Hollywood, Imperial and VeeJay between 1947 & 1957. This set showcases some of the best examples of his work such as his #1 hit 'Blues After Hours' plus 'Texas Hop' 'I Love You So' and many more.

Considering how influential his guitar techniques became Pee Wee Crayton is a generally underappreciated talent. In recent years his importance has certainly been reappraised and here are 55 examples of his exemplary art.
