Sparklers: “Rollin’ Blues” by Lowell Fulson

This is the fourth installment of this category featuring recordings of outstanding performances by noteworthy guitarists – or outstanding guitarists giving noteworthy performances.

Ladies and gentlemen! Let me introduce to you…

“Rollin’ Blues” by Lowell Fulson.

Give a listen. (You’ll be glad you did!)

 

I discovered this piece on an LP I purchased at the University of New Hampshire Bookstore some time in the late 1970’s. The album was titled: America’s Musical Roots.

It was produced by Jim Pewter and Rick Donovan and released by Festival Records in 1976.

Mr. Pewter writes in the liner notes: “Lowell Fulson was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma of Indian descent on his guitarist father’s side. He took up the guitar as a boy and by 1938 had his first regular musical job. ‘Rollin’ Blues’ is a down home instrumental recorded in 1955.”

Singer, guitarist & songwriter Lowell Fulson was born on March 31, 1921. He is best known for his songs “Reconsider Baby” and “Three O’Clock Blues.”
