LITTLE WALTER TO THE MASSES-REMEMBERING LITTLE WALTER-BILLY BOY ARNOLD, MUSSELWHITE..AT THE ALTAR OF HARP

lw front

This album is important. The reason being, it will introduce a whole new audience to Little Walter’s music.

You have to remember this is blues music that is hugely accessible. Heck, even my wife likes this blues album.

Just like the music of  Jimmy Reed and  Muddy Waters. When Mark Hummel blasts out I Got To Go, and Charlie Musselwhite gets down and dirty on Just A Feeling that’s when you realize these are damn good songs

Elsewhere Billy Boy Arnold continues his huge comeback with a gorgeous rip roaring take on Your So Fine, while Sugar Ray Norcia really lets you feel the barroom vibe of Mean Old World.

There is not a weak track on this disc which features a closeout stomp on My Babe. have a few “pop’s and let this rip on your summer patio.
