Good intro to Walter, and a rare treat to find the Blues boosted by JazzWax. (First, Gioia's book and now a nod to Chi Town from Myers--what's this "Mean Old World" comin' to?) For non-completists the years-ago 3CD set from Chess is still a solid sender... Yeah, "Last Night" I had me the "Blues with a Feeling," so I turned the "Lights Out", poured a little taste of "Thunderbird" and, whoa chile, didn't I just "Mellow Down Easy"?

Do you know if it's possible to get a copy of the 1953 elmore james, sonny boy williamson, tommy mcclennon, little walter photo used in this article? I can't find publishing rights anywhere...
