More about this programme

This final programme in the series illustrates how, whereas the early Blues players simply used their electric guitars to amplify their acoustic sound, the next generation of musicians viewed the electric guitar as a completely different instrument. Sit back and enjoy the results, which were recorded in Chicago.
