about

This collection of archive recordings offers a glimpse into the development of Elliott's playing styles. In his words: "Playing the clubs in my teens and early twenties was a fantastic experience; in those days it was common to play six nights a week, five or six sets a night. Basic training at its best!

"My interest in the blues (and its simplicity) grew naturally out of the 'pop' radio tunes I played night after night. Bill Haley and The Comets, Elvis, Ritchie Valens, The Isley Brothers, Ray Charles - virtually all their material led back to blues roots.

"By 1967, I joined my first psychedelic band, and found myself in the midst of New York's 'in' music circle - a small cellar club on West 46th street called 'The Scene'. Between '67 and '70 it truly was the scene, with late-night-to-early-morning jams with an endless list of luminaries including Jimi Hendrix, Johnny & Edgar Winter, Buddy Miles, Spirit, Led Zeppole... Blues and psychedelia mixed to a perfect blend; experimentation and innovation were encouraged and applauded.

"It was in this atmosphere that my 'styles' developed. The music on this CD goes from rural blues recorded in a garage in Mississippi, to live performance at New York's Fillmore East, 'after-midnite' studio time in funky four and eight track studios above the old RKO Palace theater on Broadway..."
