Synopsis

Amazon.com
Billy Boy Arnold was the first major Chicago blues figure who was actually born and raised in the Windy City and hadn't simply moved up from the South. As a teenager, Arnold got personal harmonica lessons from the first Sonny Boy Williamson and joined Bo Diddley's street-corner band. He was only 19 when he recorded his first single in 1955, however, and at a surprisingly youthful 57 last year, he recorded his first album in 16 years, "Back Where I Belong." Arnold hasn't lost anything to the years. He still blows his mouth harp in the wah-wah riff style of his mentor Williams, and his vocals have grown deeper, darker and fuller with age. --Geoffrey Himes

Solid blues album!

"Billy Boy Arnold has never received the attention he deserves. He's been on the scene since the late 50's but is probably much better known for a couple of classic songs that were covered by rock groups. "I wish you would" and "I ain't got you".This early 90's album shows him in good form,playing some great harp,and with a rockin' band backing him.If you don't have any of his records this is a great place to start. He's still recording and performing but never seems able to reach the level of acceptance that other chicago blues performers have acheived. Keep at it Billy!"
