"Little Walter, The Best Of Little Walter - 180 Gram"

LITTLE WALTER THE BEST OF - FACTORY SEALED LIMITED EDITION 180 GRAM HEAVY VINYL Little Walter is the best blues harp player there ever was - period, bar none. His style, his tones, his solos were absolutely revolutionary and forever changed the landscape of blues harmonica. The man could make a tiny harmonica sound as big and versatile as a saxophone. Marion Walter Jacobs' 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 rocketed to the top of the charts with the smash hit "Juke." From there, he established his own group and scored more hits like "Sad Hours" and "My Babe." Along with his virtuoso technique and his love of experimenting with echo effects, Little Walter is noted for his clear, unfussed style which occasionally brings back memories of Louis Jordan's saxophone melodies, thereby taking up influences from popular jazz. This album covers the whole spectrum of his playing. "Now we're talking...now we're talking! This IS the BLUES...It's a great pleasure to have this stunning album on quiet, 180 gram vinyl...The sound, in glorious mono, is to die for. There is nothing I can say other than buy it!" - 1.
