Joe Guitar Hughes: Texas Bluesman

2006 NR

Captured in concert in the Netherlands in 1988, legendary Houston bluesman Joe Hughes demonstrates the stinging guitar and passionate vocals that have inspired a generation of blues performers. Blending blues and soul, Hughes's music resonates with the influence of fellow Texans T-Bone Walker and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown but exerts its own unique pull. Also included are a Hughes biography and a documentary about the Swingmaster record label.
