More Info:

In a brief career, terminated by his imprisonment in 1963 for double-murder, AUBURN "PAT" HARE was influential almost beyond measure. An incendiary guitarist, he had an instantly recognisable style, alternating heavy power chords with single-string, Bluesy runs, which perhaps anticipated the sounds that Jimi Hendrix would elicit from his Stratocaster, fifteen years hence. His playing on James Cotton's memorable 'Cotton Crop Blues' famously featured one of the first-ever recorded solos which demonstrated the potential of an over-amplified electric guitar. Built around Hare's infamous 'I'm Gonna Murder My Baby' (which, of course, he eventually did), this compilation features him playing on sessions for Walter Bradford, Rosco Gordon, Little Junior Parker, James Cotton, Billy "Red" Love, Bobby Bland, Muddy Waters, etc. After murdering "his baby" (and the cop who came to arrest him), Hare spent the last sixteen years of his life in jail, dying just before he was due to be paroled.
