The original Sonny Boy Williamson was John Lee Williamson. Sonny's barking, moaning harmonica is startling in its originality and beauty. He sang with incredible emotion and conviction.
Updated May 31, 1997 including a discography of his work

... then there is Marion Walter Jacobs better known as
Little Walter
who, no matter how you cut it, has few if any traditional influences. He was one of the finest bluesmen in the early stages of what is known as Chicago Blues. Update now includes LITTLE WALTER & HIS JUKES Discography 1952-1963

Aleck "Rice" Miller (Sonny Boy Williamson II)
one of the most interesting, creative and original artists in the blues...frustratingly little is known about Sonny Boy and he has made the search more difficult by giving out widely contradictory accounts of his life history and accomplishments...He claimed his recording debut began as early as 1929 and continued into the next decade, working with Blind Lemon Jefferson, Jim Jackson and Big Joe Williams...he was well known in the South....wide travels...regular broadcasts over radio station KFFA in Helena, Arkansas, which was sponsored by the Interstate Grocery Company...Sonny Boy quickly became identified with the firms King Biscuit brand of flour, even billing his group as "Sonny Boy Williamson and his King Biscuit Entertainers".. In 1948 he recorded for Trumpet in Jackson Mississippi and signed with Chess in 1951...moved to Chicago and continued wide tours through the south... his recordings with Chess are significant: ironic, devastatingly witty songs...laconic wry singing...dry, spare harmonica solos all played with simplicity of means and a understated approach, attained to the highest level of artistry. The blues world was deprived of one of its finest, most original voices in his death in Helena, Arkansas, May 25,1965...Pete Welding

.....has essays by others as to what the Blues are, styles of Blues along with a short introduction as to who I am and a few sample .wav files for your listening pleasure. FAQ's, plus links to BLUES-L, HARP-L are provided here. Here you will find a color photo of Detroit Jr. (14k) taken Sept/95 in San Francisco. John Lee Hooker & Ry Cooder (14k), also September 95

On November 27, 1936 Robert Johnson recorded Crossroads Blues along with a number of other songs that are a reminder of his life and will be a legacy that will always be with us.

Help preserve Chicago's Maxwell Street!

The University of Illinois at Chicago has destroyed a lot of property in the area but enough is left at the old Maxwell Street area to restore it as a Historic Preservation District. The University, with a private developer, is planning on tearing down the entire area to build a new luxury mixed use development using public money. The remnants of Beale Street, Memphis's blues district, was preserved and turned into Memphis biggest tourist attraction. The University needs to be convinced it is important to preserve America's rich multi-cultural past.
