George Thorogood's first-ever solo album!

Rounder Records presents George Thorogood's first-ever solo album, Party Of One. The album features 14 cuts of traditional blues, classics, and modern blues songs, from John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" to 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."
