Bringing It On Home To You

SBW-2 was the best harp man after the Two Walters (Little Walter and Big Walter Horton). This is his best stuff for newbies. Enjoy!

Sonnyboy Williamson II

This is a great single disc comp from a pillar of electric era blues. It can be confusing though, this is NOT the "Original" Sonnyboy Williamson who wrote Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, and it is not the Sonnyboy referenced in the review on this site. THAT Sonnyboy Williamson was great too, but this one is better. This Sonnyboy Williamson came 15 or so years after the original delta bluesman, and stole the first guy's name to sell records. This is not a value judgement on the music though, it is just useful info for interested buyers. Just listen to Bring It On Home on this record an you'll be hooked. To get music by this Sonnyboy be sure to put a II after the name, otherwise you'll (probably) be looking at records by the other guy.

Sonny Boy Williamson II

Sonny Boy had it going on, and you need to just listen to his tracks and you will love it, Sonny Boy was way ahead of his time.

Sonny Boy Williamson was, in many ways, the ultimate blues legend. By the time of his death in 1965, he had been around long enough to have played with Robert Johnson at the start of his career and Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Robbie Robertson at the end of it. In between, he drank a lot of whiskey, hoboed around the country, had a successful radio show for 15 years, toured Europe to great acclaim and simply wrote, played and sang some of the greatest blues ever etched into black phonograph records....
