Little Walters ascent to becoming one of the greatest exponents of the sound known as Chicago blues began in 1951 when he became a fixed member of Muddy Waters band Two years later he established his own group and rocketed to the top of the rhythmandblues charts with smash hits such as Juke Sad Hours and My Babe Along with his virtuoso technique and his love of experimenting with echo effects Walter is noted for his clear unfussed style which occasionally brings back memories of Louis Jordans saxophone melodies thereby taking up influences from popular jazzIt is astonishing that Walters heritage is so small Of the 100 recorded titles he recorded only about half of them were ever released The present album offers a portrait of the King of the pocket organ and covers the whole spectrum of his playing his instrument sometimes sounding like the human voice a saxophone or a snarling electric guitar Harp fans and lovers of traditional blues certainly shouldnt hesitate to secure their copy of this album
