John Hammond - Sooner Or Later (1968 us, classy electric blues rock)

"Sooner Or Later" is John  Hammond's second Atlantic LP originally released in 1968. The material selected did testify to his good taste. Ten songs of electric blues boogie with a rocking band featuring songs written by Chester Burnett, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Willie Dixon, Sonny Boy Williamson - all done the funky and electrifying. A respectably hard-hitting electric blues set, comfortably integrating piano and (on occasion) Willie Bridges' saxes into the arrangements. “Sooner Or Later” was Hammond’s final effort in the sixties.

1. Crosscut Saw (R. G. Ford) - 2:43
2. How Many More Years (Chester Burnett) - 3:13
3. Sooner Or Later (Jimmy McCracklin) - 2:14
4. Shake Your Moneymaker (Elmore James) - 1:56
