If you love the blues, and I mean blues as it should be, guitar and harp, then you will love this album. Being a sonny fan anyway and a blues harp player myself this is a very inspirational album. Love it.

This was a great CD of rocking music from the early days before Sonny Boy Wiliamson came to London. It made a seventy three year old guy dane again.

His Finishing School, Before He Made His Chess Legend 9 Jun. 2001
By BluesDuke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For hearing the man born as Alec (Rice) Miller as he had rounded into near-complete game shape, in the years immediately preceding the seminal sides he would cut for Chess beginning in the mid-to-late 1950s, there is no better package than this of Sonny Boy Williamson's incandescent, embryonic recordings for the ancient Trumpet label. Many of these songs would get the Sonny Boy makeover when he re-cut them during his Chess years, and it's intriguing to compare between the Trumpet originals and the Chess refineries of such signature songs as "Eyesight To The Blind," "Cross My Heart," "Nine Below Zero," "Mr. Down Child," and "Mighty Long Time." Then again, the tandem treat is to hear a good enough dollop of some of Sonny Boy's more personal material, particularly the slightly haunting "West Memphis Blues," which he wrote about the fire that actually burned down the house he had bought with his wife.
Then, there are the bonuses: one of the last broadcasts of the legendary "King Biscuit Time" on which Sonny Boy would appear before his death; and perhaps the earliest known version Elmore James would cut of his signature "Dust My Broom," this one with Sonny Boy (who was long reputed to have tricked him into cutting it for Trumpet) sliding in with some fills showing he was a deft an accompanist/partner as he was a harmonica virtuoso. Accompanying the cantankerously poetic Sonny Boy, mostly, are such legends of Memphis/Helena blues as guitarist Joe Willie Wilkins (Robert Jr. Lockwood he ain't, but for laying a sensible support and spitting out the occasional fill and run he acquits his own self very nicely), bassist Cliff Bivens, drummer Frock, and pianist Dave Campbell, and they deliver yeoman's work.

The REAL King of Rock 'n' Roll? 13 Sept. 2002
By William E Donoghue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sonny Boy somehow gets swept into a corner because he only had a few records that were "hits" in the 1950s, "Don't Start Me To Talkin'" and "Mighty Long Time," his masterpiece on this CD. However, when he died, artists including The Moody Blues, Jack Bruce, Jimmy Reed, Paul Jones of Manfred Mann, John Maysll, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton and others recorded tributes to him. He recorded with the Animals and Yardbirds, Jimmy Page, jazzmen Chris Barber and Roland Kirk and others. The real story is that Sonny Boy II (not the same Sonny Boy Williamson who recorded "Good Morning Little School Girl"} was Alex Miller, a blues harp player, songwriter and singer who had been playing in the Mississippi delta since the late 1920s with people like Robert Johnson and Robert Lockwood Jr., Joe Willie Wilkins, Pinetop Perkins, Ike Turner and others. He was THE star of the Delta, so popular he didn't need to record until 1950 when he started to record these sides with Jackosn Mississippi's Trumpet Records. He was an escaped convict who became an international blues star using another man's name (John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson among others) and another's as his alias (his brother Willie Miller). He was truly hiding in the spotlight.

Traveling Harp Wizard Needs Home 10 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rice Miller was a man of many faces, tones, and zip codes. THis disc packs some of the fiercest, most downhome sounds that Mississippi had to offer. Includes a radio broadcast from the KING BICUIT FLOWER HOUR and definitve versions of such tunes as "She Brought Life Back To The Dead," "Cool Blues," and "Eyesight To The Blind." As well, "Mighty Long Time" is a marvel. Wonderful harp with Willie Love on piano, and Elmore James on guitar for most tracks. Some of the best Sonny Boy available in the States.

FORGET THE "BISCUITS" SONNY BOY IS "KING" !!!!! 27 Feb. 2010
By lptf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This cd is AWESOME FROM START TO FINISH! If you need one cd of Sonny Boy's THIS IS IT! You'll want more, of course, WHO DOESN'T?! Why Chess doesn't have an affordable box set of this man is a true enigma! I digress, just BUY THIS! 'Nuf said!

an angel plays harp 17 April 2000
By Little paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are picking up the harp buy this I have played for twenty years and this is one of the first albums I bought.Check out the AbWaaahs. A Mighty Long Time is the closest I have ever heard to heavenly music. I hope I get to hear him up there.
