Raw Solo Recordings On Vinyl LP!
First-Ever Solo Album!


George Thorogood releases his first ever SOLO album titled "Party of One".

The collection features 14 solo recordings of George's raw and stripped down performances of traditional blues, classics, and modern blues songs.

Party of One features John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer", Hank Williams' "Pictures From Life's Other Side", and The Rolling Stones' "No Expectations".

PARTY OF ONE was produced by Grammy-winner Jim Gaines (John Lee Hooker, Luther Allison, and Stevie Ray Vaughan), who reunites with Thorogood on the debut solo project, having produced several of Thorogood’s biggest albums to date (RIDE ‘TIL I DIE, THE HARD STUFF, THE DIRTY DOZEN). The album’s primarily acoustic instrumentation – including slide, Dobro, and harmonica – is performed entirely by Thorogood, raw and stripped down, with an intimate one-on-one feel.

Says Thorogood: "I think this is a project that’s long overdue. Maybe it should have been the very first album I ever made. After playing with the band for all these years, I had to kind of reverse my hands and my head in order to do this thing justice." Thorogood continues, "But I think Destroyers fans – and hardcore blues fans, too – are ready for the unexpected. My whole career, I’ve always said, ‘Just give them what you are, and they’re either going to dig it or not.’ This record is what I was, what I am, and what I always will be."

PARTY OF ONE is Thorogood’s return to Rounder Records, the roots label with which he first signed in 1976 to record the three hit albums that launched his recording career, beginning with his debut, GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS. Says Rounder co-founder Ken Irwin: “George’s coming back is a nice completing of the circle. This record shows his talent as a storyteller in a very different setting, with all the emotion in his guitar and vocals. It’s a really intimate record, but it’s unmistakably a George Thorogood record, too.”

On the album, Thorogood delivers the full spectrum of modern blues masters.
