Listen to Dust my broom (well, some of it)

Elmore Brooks
Born 27th. January 1918 - Richland, Mississippi
Died 24th. May 1963 - Chicago, Illinois

Probably his most famous track but, like most blues it seems, not an original. Certainly recorded by Robert Johnson in the '30s and that may not even be the first. Anyway, for electric slide guitar you can't beat Elmore.

A few covers of Elmore's tracks:
Dust my broom - Canned Heat

Dust my broom - Taj Mahal
The sky is crying - Eric Clapton
Dust my broom - Robert Johnson
