A 2cd set showcasing the talents of no fewer than 26 different 'harpmen' wailing the blues, covering the period from post-war 1940s to the early 1960s.
Including well known artists like Little Walter, Jimmy Reed &Sonny Boy Williamson, to lesser luminaries such as Lazy Lester, Robert Richard & Sammy Myers, plus many more, all first class exponents of the genre.
You'll find upbeat boogies, slow blues numbers & many more examples of this exquisite art, 50 tracks in all, a veritable feast of harmonica wailing.
If you like blues harp, you'll love this. Enjoy!

If you like your blues to have a heavy dose of harp, get this double album - you will not regret it. Whilst many of the artists are well known, there are a few who were new (in a very pleasant way) to me and whose performances are every bit as good as their more well known counterparts.
