This is one of the classic blues albums that have entered the general rock mainstream together with Live At The Regal by BB King and a few others.
In the late 1950s Waters was revolutionising the blues by playing amplified electric guitars and when he toured the UK in 1958, he inspired artists like The Rolling Stones and The Animals to develop their R&B/blues sounds.
Things of course have moved on a long way since then and what was then groundbreaking for its sound, still emphasises the blues in the vocals and the song structure rather than wailing guitars.
