Generous and vital collection of the "first" Sonny

mr. mark

Not to be confused with Rice Miller, the second and better-known artist of this name, John Lee Williamson recorded for a major label (RCA/Bluebird)in the 1930's and early '40's. He was murdered by a mugger in Chicago. As well as the name, the two men shared a keen sense of humor and fantastic harp skills! Williamson's music usually featured Big Bill Broonzy on accoustic guitar. He is considered one of the earliest "Urban" blues artists, often singing about life in the city rather than on the farm. (As opposed to more rural contemporaries like Robert Johnson.)"Schoolgirl" became a blues and rock standard, and many of these tunes were race hits in their day.Nice transfer from the sixty-plus year old 78's. Any blues fan needs plenty of both Sonny Boys!
