After 15 million albums sold worldwide, more than 8,000 live shows, and an uncompromising catalog of hits that has certified him as one of rock's most relentless entertainers, the bad-to-the-bone icon has returned home to Rounder Records to release the first solo record of his 40+ year career. Party Of One is Thorogood's long-awaited tribute to the artists that shaped his musical consciousness. Produced by Grammy-winner Jim Gaines - known for his work with John Lee Hooker, Luther Allison and Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as several of Thorogood's biggest discs - the 14 cuts (plus a bonus CD-only track) on Party Of One are a potent platter of traditional blues, classics, and modern blues benchmarks. The album sees Thorogood covering blues masters such as Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, and Elmore James, as well as other legends, including The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan. The primarily acoustic instrumentation - including slide, Dobro, and harmonica - is performed entirely by Thorogood live in the studio with minimal overdubs. As Thorogood himself says, 'This record is what I was, what I am, and what I always will be.'
