The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 196

Legends Mix

In today's show, you will get one of the pioneers on the electrical guitar - depending on definition of what a guitar solo is, he done the first or one of the first electrical guitar solos on record ever. But he was also a great composer and arranger for the famous bands in the thirties.

There's more to enjoy of course - how about Louis Armstrongs version of a classic blues, the one and only real Sonny Boy Williamson, and we end in style with an acoustical recording of one of the greatest female blues singers. Beware, it's a more than ninety year old record on that turntable, and back in 1923, nobody ever heard of hi-fi.
