Who's the king of all post-war blues harpists, Chicago division or otherwise? Why, the virtuosic Little Walter, without a solitary doubt. The fiery harmonica wizard took the humble mouth organ in dazzling amplified directions that were unimaginable prior to his ascendancy. His daring instrumental innovations were so fresh, startling, and ahead of their time that they sometimes sported a ... Read more in Amazon's Little Walter Store

Little Walter Jacobs doesn't seem to get the respect he deserves. Let's fix that right now: it says here that "Hate to See You Go" is one of the top five blues studio recordings...ever! First off, there's the huge, steely sound of Little Walter's harmonica, amplified (he was the first in Chicago to do so) and drenched in lonely reverb. Then comes the biting lead/rhythm guitar of Walter's pal Muddy Waters, along with primitive, powerful drumming. This is a fine set of songs, very diverse by blues standards, mostly written by Jacobs or Willie Dixon. But best of all is Walter's vocal approach: raw, primal, but controlled, full of personality. He emotes the pain of a Robert Johnson or Billie Holiday, and the aggression and power of Muddy. This is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in Chicago Blues.

Little Walter has been considered THE best modern blues harmonica player to this day by just about any-and-everyone who is connected with the Chicago blues scene. I don't think he has been treated or referred to without respect since the day he died, except by a few jealous contemporaries.

For many years, this 1969 compilation, "Hate To See You Go," was the only album in print collecting a body of Little Walter Jacobs' own recordings. So although "The Best of Little Walter" was out of print when I started playing harmonica at 13 y.o. I certainly was thrilled, ecstatic and altogether blown away by this collection which includes Mellow Down Easy, Roller Coaster, Blue And Lonesome, Everybody Needs Somebody and Blue Midnight. No complaints did I make!

("The Best of Little Walter" was a 1958 album of Walter's chart-toppers during the 1950s. His 1952 "Juke" was #1 on the Billboard R&B charts for 8 weeks that year. "The Best of Little Walter" was also issued in a "stereo" edition, but also went out of print for decades.)

While Walter was probably not the first to record harp "amplified" ** he was arguably the first to fully exploit the explosive effect of close, hand-cupped harmonica amplification with over-driven, distorted microphone-guitar amplifier combinations and specially effects like the tape-delay machine called the Echo-Plex.

Check out the excellent page on Walter: wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Walter

There is also an extensive written biography on Little Walter called "Blues with a Feeling: The Little Walter Story"

Also, look up modern harpman Mark Hummel's recordings and his new memoir "Big Road Blues - 12 Bars On I-80". Mark, I believe is the Ultimate Little Walter Geek.
