CD Reviews

Harmonica Blues: the Original Masters
Richard Malone | Bloomington, IN USA | 11/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a "must-have" CD for those interested in early harmonica technique. It begins with a mind-blowing harmonica "train" by Freeman Stowers. This is unlike anything commonly found on post-war recordings. What follows is a wide-ranging sampling of virtuostic harmonica playing by artists both obscure, Chuck Darling, and famous, De Ford Bailey. This CD highlights harmonica techniques might otherwise have been lost. This would make a fine addition to the collection of any serious blues harmonica player."
Essential for harp players
Flattop-Tomm | Oklahoma | 07/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd is essential for all acoustic harp players, and even for electric harp players. These are the dudes that influenced Sonny Boy Willaimson II, Junior Wells, Little Walter, Big Walter, Kid Thomas, and other great electric blues harp players from the 50's on. This cd concentrates on the 20's and 30's, which is essentially the pre war blues period. Not all the songs are strictly blues there's some hillbilly, and jug style tunes too. However the main stars here are the harp players, and thier amazing solos. Jaybird Coleman might very well be the most well known of the harp players here, but they are all great and so is the sound quality. I am a harp player myself, and I recomend this to all harp players as well as anything by the logn forgotten Harmonica Fats."
