As a harmonica player he was rhythmically freer, and a lot less unvarying than most blues harpists of his time. Little Walter stood out and made his way to the top, yet his musical triumphs couldn’t save him from himself.
The track comes from their upcoming album, ‘Blue & Lonesome,’ scheduled for release on December 2nd.
Little Walter inducted into the Hall of Fame, the monumental recording session held in Aurora, Illinois, and much more in This Week in Blues Past!
Little Walter was the landmark harmonica player with a wild reputation and a pioneering harmonica sound that was as untouchable in the 1950s as it is today. One song in particular has withstood the test of time.
