Although there are many cheaper single disc `best of' compilations available of Little Walter, this now deleted 2CD set is without doubt the most comprehensive collection available of his best work at Chess Records (barring the ultra rare Charly 4CD box set: The Chess Years 1952-1963 released in 1992 featuring 95 tracks in total but this now very difficult to get hold of).

Featuring 46 tracks in total in superb sound by Chess, this 2CD box set comes with a 16 page booklet giving recording details of all 46 tracks and informative sleeve notes about the man who transformed blues harmonica in the 1950's and who is widely regarded as the King Of Blues Harmonica - the 46 tracks here back that statement up and apart from the hit version of `Last Night' and the incredible `Blue Light' which both have been curiously left out here, this box set features all of his essential titles: `Juke', `Off The Wall', `My Babe' etc and features most of his breathtaking instrumentals, check out the amazing `Boogie', the beautiful `Fast Boogie' and the rip-roaring `Back Track'.

A must have for any serious blues fan and also a great source point for harmonica players.
