Pre-order the album:
John Lee Williamson, better known as 'Sonny Boy 1' revolutionized the role of the blues harmonica. He is joined on Bluebird Blues (1937) by Big Joe Williams and Robert Lee McCoy. Sonny Boy 1 was a first rate song writer and effective vocalist. His most successful tunes include 'Shake the Boogie' 'You'd Better Cut That Out' 'Sloppy Drunk' 'Early in the Morning' 'Good Morning Little School Girl and Hoodoo Hoodoo'. He has influenced other blues harmonica players from Sonny Boy Arnold, Sonny Terry, Junior Wells, Little Walter, Snooky Pryor and many others. Tragically, Sonny Boy was murdered on the streets of Chicago in 1948, whilst returning home from a gig at the Plantation Club. He was 34 years old. Visuals made using Power Director, a piece of papier mache that i made and the video was lit by candlelight to get that flickering ole time feeling...バックの映像は、なんじゃ??
