This album, something of a companion volume to the earlier released The Best Of Little Walter (713682), never actually existed as an album, being a collection of tracks Little Walter recorded for Chess Records. Like many of his contemporaries Little Walter didn’t release many albums during his lifetime (in Walter’s case just the one), his career comprising mainly of single releases alongside almost non-stop touring and performing. To many Little Walter is the king of all post-war blues harpists. He devised a unique way of projecting the harmonica above and beyond the rest of the band and in so doing developed a unique sound. As such he proved influential, with a slew of later bluesmen all owing some degree of thanks and copying his style to a certain extent. The seventeen tracks that make up this particular compilation showcase his talents to perfection.
