The story of Sonny Boy Williamson could fill a book in itself - not least because there were two of them! The first, John Lee Williamson, was a master of cross-note tuning, playing the harmonica a fourth key above that of the music and by using drawn, rather than blown, notes produced a slurred, almost vocal melody line. The second, real name Aleck 'Rice' Miller, is better known in Europe for, unlike the original who died in 1948, this Sonny Boy, whose music you will hear here, was around until 1965 and able to come to Europe to cash in on the British blues boom. He may not have been the first Sonny Boy, but Aleck 'Rice' Miller certainly made a name for himself. His recordings will remain popular for as long as the blues is played; enjoy some of the very best on this 2LP Gatefold 180g vinyl edition.
