Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown was more than just a blues musician; throughout his long career he embraced many of the tributaries of American music. As well as being a superb guitarist, influenced heavily, like B. B. King, on the style of T-Bone Walker, he was also a proficient violin, mandolin, fiddle and harmonica player. The 2CD set features the A and B side of all his releases between 1947 and 1961, and brings together all of his earliest singles for the Peacock label on one collection. Despite receiving very little chart success many of his singles were highly original and are now so famous it becomes difficult to understand why, "Boogie Uproar" "Okie Dokie Stomp", "Gate Walks To Board" and many others were staples for bar bands for years to come and were a huge influence over guitarists like Johnny Winter, Anson Funderburgh and Stevie Ray Vaughan. He didn't like to be called a bluesman but whether he liked it or not he was undeniably a major influence over the genre throughout his lifetime.
