An Intimate 1963 Collection of Solos & Duets! Includes Matt Murphy & Memphis Slim!
An American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter, from Mississippi, Sonny Boy Williamson was one of the greatest bluesmen ever. His harp, vocals and songwriting have never been surpassed. All his records are classics, but this one is truly unique - it's the cream of two rare, acoustic albums cut in Denmark in 1963. Gentle, personal blues with brilliant harmonica, accompanied by only Matt "Guitar" Murphy and Memphis Slim on piano. Original LP listed on Stereophile's Record To Die For list.
"An intimate 1963 collection of Sonny Boy Williamson in solo and duet (with guitarist Matt Murphy) formats; on three tracks, pianist Memphis Slim hops aboard. This delightful addendum to Williamson's electric output of the same era was cut in Denmark..." - Bill Dahl, allmusic.com
