A special treat for the country blues enthusiast.

""Solo" presents John Hammond at his best as a master of the country blues. Besides his heartfelt renderings of Robert Johnson classics, John includes some moaning and wailing tracks like "Drifting Blues" and "The Sky is Crying" that will surely carry the listener into the deep delta blues. John also gives us a glimps of his early Jimmy Reed influences with his sparkeling rendition of "Honest I Do". And if all this isn't enough to get your toes tappin', "Truckin' Little Baby" and the encore track "Got My Mojo Working" are sure to get you jumpin' and jivin'. If you love the country blues, then John Hammond is your man. And if you're a fan of John's, "Solo" is a must for your collection."
