Opinião do álbum

Baby Face Leroy Foster's chronological recordings overlap and intersect nicely with those made by Muddy Waters during the late '40s and early '50s. Both men hailed from rural Mississippi. Foster made it to Chicago in 1945, two years after Muddy. Foster shows up on some of Muddy's Aristocrat recordings from 1948 and 1949. Muddy in turn participated in six of the nine sessions reissued here. While Muddy stuck with Aristocrat beyond the point in 1950 when it turned into Chess Records, Foster's recorded musical output landed on the Aristocrat, J.O.B., Regal, and Parkway labels.

This amazing compilation is packed with the sort of undiluted Mississippi/Chicago blues that'll cut right through you like a hot knife through a butter lamb.

Unfortunately, he wasn't around long enough to enjoy the fruits of his labors. The Mississippi native came to Chicago in 1945 in the star-crossed company of...
