Legendary blue harmonica player Little Walter was born Marion Walter Jacobs in Marksville, Louisiana and learned to play the guitar as a youngster, subsequently focusing more on his harmonica work when the bookings increased. Initially something of an acoustic harmonica player, his later switch to amplified harmonica was revolutionary; he first introduced the sound on Muddy Waters recordings, and even after leaving Muddy’s group, would invariably be brought back for recording purposes. His own recording career began in 1947 and like numerous other blues musicians, consisted of little more than a series of single releases. Indeed, the only album released during his lifetime was a compilation of his best known work, as can be found on this album.
