Tuesday brings The Blues…Sonny Boy Williamson II-King Biscuit Time


In the beginning, we said we were going to post the best of the old and the new. For me that includes The Blues. The harmonica has always been one of my favorite instruments and that being the case, Sonny Boy Williamson is the Man .

King Biscuit Time features Sonny Boy‘s early Trumpet sides from 1951. The original “Eyesight to the Blind,” “Nine Below Zero” and “Mighty Long Time” are Sonny Boy at his very best. Added bonuses include Williamson backing Elmore James on his original recording of “Dust My Broom” and a live KFFA broadcast from 1965.
