Description

John Lee Curtis Williamson - "Sonny Boy" Williamson I (March 30, 1914 - June 1, 1948) was an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter. He's not to be confused with Sonny Boy Williamson II, a later blues harmonica star, who "stole" his name. (That's a story worth googling).

Williamson's harmonica style was a great influence on post-war performers. Later in his career, he was a mentor to many up-and-coming blues musicians who moved to Chicago, including Muddy Waters.

He's often referred to as "the father of modern blues harp", these are his essential recordings.

External Reviews

" . . . it's this Sonny Boy who came first, and though the songs on this album are mostly recorded in the acoustic "Country Blues" style, many of them have gone on to become standards since their electrification by the more widely known stars of the "Chicago Blues" era. Awesome collection of John Lee the original Sonny Boy Williamson recordings, a must for blues harp fans," - Google Review.
