A Record Store Day 2020 Release
Limited Edition Vinyl LP Of 500 Copies
Virtuoso blues guitarist Bobby Parker inspired John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jimmy Page and many others yet it has taken 66 years since his recording debut for a vinyl LP compilation to be issued under his name. The opening track Watch your Step was played on stage by the Beatles in their Hamburg days who by their own admission, took its riff to fashion the opening to I Feel Fine. And let’s not forget Led Zeppelin’s Moby Dick, which borrowed that same riff. Here are 15 unforgettable vocal performances plus two instrumentals that showcase his unique way of playing the blues.
