Sonny Boy Williamson - The Blues (2018)

Sonny Boy Williamson, Peter Chatman

Sonny Boy Williamson

Iconic Blues Singer, Songwriter and Harmonica Player Sonny Boy Williamson (died 1965) returns to Native DSD Music with his second DSD release from 2xhd Mastering - Storyville Records. The Blues features 10 tracks recorded to Analog Tape at the Ivar Rosenberg Studio in Copenhagen on November 1, 1964, with Producer Karl Emil Knudsen and Recording Engineer Ivar Rosenberg. The album features Sonny Boy Williamson (harmonica and vocals), Memphis Slim (piano), Matt Murphy (guitar) and Bill Stephney (drums).

Whenever Sonny Boy Williamson began to play, any generational or cultural barriers that might have existed quickly crumbled. His harmonica spoke a language of our time, tortured, wailing, crying – and strangely beautiful; its effect was powerfully human and its appeal penetrated national, racial, and economic frontiers. His artistry, therefore, forged a link between himself and his newly won audiences, winning them over with his personality. The popularity of Williamson is exceptional.

Sonny Boy Williamson

When ‘Willie’ Rice Miller, aka Sonny Boy Williamson, made these intimate, casual recordings in 1963, he was already (probably) 66 years old. Most of his long career was over; only two years later he would die in his little apartment in Helena, Arkansas. He was recognized as a giant throughout the blues world as a harmonica player, vocalist, songwriter, prolific recording artist, live performer and wildly colorful personality.
