Manufacturer Description

Directly or indirectly, Sonny Boy (a.k.a. Rice Miller) influenced every blues harmonica player after him-Junior Parker, Little Walter and Junior Wells to name a few. But he was also a major contributor to the blues repertoire, leaving behind songs that would inspire generations of artists. This collection features 15 of his classic songs, including Don't Start Me Talkin'; Keep It to Yourself; Help Me; Bring It On Home; One Way Out; Fattening Frogs for Snakes , and more.

This is Sonny Boy Williamson II, whose 1940s Mississippi Delta radio broadcasts for King Biscuit Time made him one of the most influential of all blues musicians. A master harmonica player, he created relaxed songs, often humorous, that reminded urban listeners of their country roots. These tracks are from his years at Chess, beginning in the mid-1950s until his death in 1965. His recording bands feature Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, and Robert Lockwood Jr., among others. Perhaps his best-known track here is "Don't Start Me to Talkin' (I'll Tell You Everything I Know)," but his signature sound is evident on every high trill he played. --Robert Gordon
