CD Reviews

Acoustic, primitive Walter
wednightprayermeeting | Bellview, CA | 10/16/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Acoustic, primitive Little Walter at age 19. Extremely raw and stripped clean of frills. Straight blues. Features Muddy, JB Lenoir, and Sunnyland Slim. If you like Little Walter, this is a must. Great early versions of "Rollin' And Tumblin'.""
Essential for die-hard Little Walter fans
Jimbeau Harp | New Jersey | 02/09/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Die-hard Little Walter fans will find much to like about this CD. Just having "Rollin' and Tumblin'(Part 1)" is worth the price of the CD alone. Another outstanding song is "I Just Keep Loving Her". Walter also plays guitar on this CD, a fact that surprises some people. His guitar work isn't in the same league as a T-Bone Walker, Jimmy Rogers or Muddy Waters, but it shows another side of his talent. For folks looking for their first Little Walter CD, this is not for them - go for one of the "Best of" Chess titles instead."

"If you have any regard for or knowledge of Chicago blues at all, you will already know that these are classic, seminal performances with a young Muddy Waters and the great Leroy Foster. If you think this music is less than essential, you need to abandon the Blues join the Barry Manilow fan club.

As for JB Lenoir - he was one of the most innovative of the second line Chicago bluesmen, and a highly unusal lyricist. I had the privelage of seeing him perform in the 60's and my high opinion of him is far from unique.

So ignore Pepper and buy into classic formative Chicago blues."
