Amazon.co.uk

This beautiful album was engineered by Rudy Van Gelder in his Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, home studio where so much jazz history was made. It features guitar innovators Lonnie Johnson and Elmer Snowden together for the first time--despite a friendship going back to the 1920s when both appeared on some of the earliest jazz and blues 78s. Johnson, the father of single-note six-string soloing, is in marvelous voice on this selection of blues, ballads, and jazz, crooning the double-entendre "Jelly Roll Baker" and the heartache-laden "Back Water Blues" (a Bessie Smith tune he first cut in 1927) with a marksman's sense of pitch and chilling nuance. Snowden serves mostly as accompanist. But these men play so closely that they seem to be sharing every breath. --Ted Drozdowski

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this CD believing it was by Lonnie Johnson and Elmer Snowden - as the information on Amazon suggests. It is, in fact, a compilation featuring the likes of Muddy Waters, Little Walter and Howling Wolf - but definitely no Lonnie Johnson and Elmer Snowden! So, my one-star review is not for the actual CD (which I would probably give, say, 3 stars as there are much better compilations of Chicago blues out there) but for Amazon who I have contacted twice asking them to update their info (they promised to do this but haven't as of 14.2.2015). So, please beware if you are tempted to buy this record - you might not get what you expect.
