Let's Rock Awhile CD
Let's Rock Awhile - His Guitar, His Hepcats and His Rocking Rhythm Orchestra CD
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 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 is often cited as “the first Rock 'n' Roll record”.
Carter's over-driven electric guitar style was similar to that of Chuck Berry from 1955 onwards.
This superb 28 track collection showcases one of the forgotten greats of Texas Blues
Accompanying booklet includes detailed liner notes.
