"No mincing words: This is one of the best-sounding blues LPs ever. Recorded in Denmark for Storyville in 1963, it dates from the period when harmonica deity Williamson toured and released albums with British blues bands, The Yardbirds and The Animals. Here he's backed by bluesmen Memphis Slim, Billie Stepney and the great Matt 'Guitar' Murphy, who passed away in June and who is remembered for playing with The Blues Brothers. Via 45rpm double LP, the sound is vivid and natural, the small group nestling in an atmospheric seting, playing loose and easy. A superb cover of Elmore James' 'The Sky Is Crying,' familiar to Hendrix fans, opens the set. Magnificent." — Sound Quality: 90% — Ken Kessler, Hi Fi News, November 2018
An American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter, from Mississippi. 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 2 Die 4 list.
Now with Analogue Production's 45 RPM release, the best-sounding version of this historic album gives listeners an even richer sonic experience. The dead-quiet double-LP, with the music spread over four sides of vinyl, reduces distortion and high frequency loss as the wider-spaced grooves let your stereo cartridge track more accurately.
