Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing including bonus tracks. Fabulous guitar slinger, vocalist and songwriter, Pee Wee Crayton was one of the most imaginative guitar innovators during the post-World War II years, before rock 'n' roll took America by storm. He is thought to have been the first blues guitarist to use a Fender Stratocaster, playing an instrument given to him by Leo Fender. An important link between T-Bone Walker's blues and Chuck Berry's rock, Crayton never got the popular attention he deserved during his lifetime, even though many guitarists still cite him as a primary influence. This essential LP presents the bluesman's first long play, Pee Wee Crayton, in it's entirety. Originally issued in 1960 by Modern Records' subsidiary Crown label, it has been long unavailable on vinyl. In addition to the original album, this limited collector's edition includes two bonus tracks from the same period: the sumptuous "I Love You So," one of Crayton's biggest hits, and the electrifying "Poppa Stoppa," a guitar instrumental with exhilarating staccato picks on the high end of the neck. These seminal recordings show Pee Wee Crayton to be a capable and exciting performer in both the uptempo and ballad styles, as both a vocalist and instrumentalist. This set provides ample proof of Crayton's stature as a significant bluesman, and an important exponent in the transition from the earliest electric blues to a harder R&B style.
