Elmore James: Something Inside Of Me (Bell MBLL104)

Max Jones, Melody Maker, 21 December 1968

A LOT HAS been written of late about Elmore James, one of the big men of post-war blues, who died in May of '63. His recordings are being issued at a nice rate, too, and the newest Bell release, Something Inside Of Me (MBLL104), brings the Elmore admirer a good deal of previously unheard stuff (four of five tracks, I think) as well as some fine things that have been out before.
