BLUE GUITAR

Latest update on 10/10/2013

Artist: Earl Hooker
Author: Earl Hooker
Label: Age
Year: 1961

Instrumental on Chicago subsidiary of Mel London's Chief label. His only (local) hit. Earl first cut a Blue Guitar in '53 for Sun (with Pinetop Perkins on piano), but that reording was shelved for a Sun Blues Archive comp and surely wasn't Muddy's example for You Shook Me, let alone for Led Zeppelin's. See also: You Need Love.
