Pee Wee Crayton was an icon and pioneer of modern blues guitar. With inspiration from jazz legend Charlie Christian and lessons from T-Bone Walker, Crayton helped define the emerging West Coast blues scene and electric blues guitar, and became a patriarch of both. In his heyday (late '40s to early '50s) his popularity was second only to his mentor, T-Bone Walker, and his success preceded that of Lowell Fulson, Gatemouth Brown, and B.B. King.

To the end, Pee Wee's chops and licks were all there. This CD represents the best of his last recordings, produced by Rod Piazza in 1983 and 1984. Early Hour Blues showcases the deepest and most jumping blues from Pee Wee's final two albums, and serve to reaffirm the greatness of a vital and dazzling artist.

"Though he recorded prolifically throughout the late 1940s and 1950s, he never quite garnered the attention he deserved. That's a shame, as Early Hour Blues--collecting several cuts from Crayton's final two albums--attests." - Genevieve Williams, Amazon.com Editorial Review
