.... h t t p s : // w w w . you tube . com / channel/UCNScev0pawK4wl1PneKoHxg . .... As of this date (December, 2018) Ely James and the Backtrakkers has twelve original LP music compilations to deliver on. The year-end goal is ambitious, vaulting up twelve LP compilations and three more original Hits compilations to the two we have today. Rock covers are available for mngrs/venues desiring them but the concentration is in alignment with forte that is the production of guitar-centric powerhouse Blues music, all Ely James and the Backtrakkers originals recorded at Ely's Lights Borealis Studio Musica Raptura. Expressive rock, strong and progressive yet of standard Blues format variety that satisfies the modern feel that we believe some of yesterday's artists might produce today and that today's- will find intelligent and stimulating. The selected gig occurence and rehearsal frequency listed on this sight is in reference to gigs with and rehearsals for other outfits, most of which were played on the East Coast, several at The Decade, Nick's Fat City, Hardrock Cafe (Pittsburgh and Santa Monica), outside festivals like Freedom Fest and Blues Festivals, several once and twice a monthers, all of which were paying events.
