Overview:
With its rich history as a blues town of unusual depth and verve, Memphis has produced a significant crew of players and this knock out collection, focusing on mid-century Bluff City harp bosses, emphatically re-asserts that reputation. With classic workouts from the mighty likes of Walter Horton (doing business here, on his first recordings, as Mumbles), Willie Nix and one man powerhouse Joe Hill Louis, the material ranges from lowdown, piercing harp and impassioned vocal pleas to raw, stomping, rhythm heavy instrumentals. With Sun Records visionary Sam Phillips overseeing almost every song here, and irresistible numbers like Hortons Wolf Call Boogie and Woodrow Adams Wine Head Woman, its a priceless snapshot of a critical moment in blues history.
