Virtuoso blues guitarist Bobby Parker inspired John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jimmy Page, and many others yet it has taken 66 years since his recording debut for a compilation to be issued under his name.

The opening track "Watch Your Step" was played on stage by the Beatles in their Hamburg days who by their own admission, took its riff to fashion the opening to "I Feel Fine". And let's not forget Led Zeppelin's "Moby Dick", which borrowed that same riff.

What a great soulful blues singer Bobby Parker was too. From his 1956 recording of "Titanic", to 1969's "It's Hard But It's Fair", Soul Of The Blues features unforgettable vocal performances and instrumentals that showcase his unique way of playing the blues.

Parker settled permanently in the DC area in the early 1960's.
