Kirk "Eli" Fletcher is young African American man from Los Angeles who has embraced and thoroughly immersed himself in the music of his parents and grandparents: the electric blues sounds of the '50s and '60s. In an age when his contemporaries are immersed in hip hop, Fletcher's heroes are people like B.B. King and Muddy Waters. Fletcher's talent on the guitar has catapulted him to the very top of his field. On this 17 track CD, he's joined by special guest artists Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) on harmonica/vocals, and Janiva Magness and Finis Tasby on vocals. This CD is now available for the first time in the U.S. with 3 previously unreleased tracks.
