1 - WILLIAMSON, SONNY BOY - DOWN AND OUT BLUES - (CD) 
HALLMARK


Down And Out With The Blues is regarded as one of the greatest blues albums of all time as well as a landmarkfor artist Sonny Boy Williamson. Having commenced his Chess recording career in 1955, Sonny Boy (in fact thesecond artist to go under the moniker of Sonny Boy Williamson) released a succession of singles for the label,several of which were gathered together for the purpose of the album Down And Out With The Blues.Therefore there is no noticeable theme or thread running throughout the album, merely a collection of twelvetracks that had previously been available for purchase as singles. This, however, does not detract from the overallfeel of this album; Sonny Boy had already established a reputation as a master story teller, and the final tracklistingchoice showcased his abilities to perfection. Whilst the album was originally issued in the US in 1959, a Britishrelease wasnt forthcoming until 1964, following a change in distribution rights to Pye Records. Despite the fiveyear delay, Down And Out With The Blues still managed an appearance on the chart, proof of its enduring qualities.

2 - WILLIAMSON, SONNY BOY - DOWN AND OUT BLUES - (LP) 
RUMBLE


Sonny Boy Williamson's debut album, originally released in 1959, combined many of his early singles into one complete package. Though he may not be as much of a household name as Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, or John Lee Hooker, Williamson is every bit an equal to his Chicago contemporaries. Featuring backing, in fact, from Waters, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon, this is a truly essential piece of Chicago blues reissued on Rumble.

5 - WILLIAMSON, SONNY BOY - VOLUME 1 - (CD) 
HALLMARK


The first and dare we say the better of the two artists to use the Sonny Boy Williamson moniker, John Lee Williamsonlanded his first recording contract in 1937 at the age of 23 and over the next decade or so establishedhimself as one of the leading blues artists.His initial recordings were in the country blues style, but over the next few years he relied more upon the use ofthe harmonica and became acknowledged as the father of the modern blue sharp. He recorded some 120 sides(all of which were singles, rather than albums) over that ten years or so, and a representative collection is presentedon this compelling collection.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Good For Nothing Blues 02. Thinking My Blues Away 03. Life Time Blues 04. Miss Ida Lee 05. Springtime Blues 06. Coal And Iceman Blues 07. Drink On Little Girl 08. Mattie Mae Blues 09. Jivin The Blues 10. I Been Dealing With The Devil 11. War Time Blues 12. Train Fare Blues 13. Decoration Day Blues No. 2 14. Early In The Morning No. 2 15. Welfare Store Blues 16. My Little Machine
