Little Walter "Sad Hours"

Ich weiss nicht, ob's an der Aufnahmetechnik alleine liegt, aber die Harmonika klingt einfach schaurig-schoen!

"Walter's eternally vicious temper led to his violent undoing in 1968. He was involved in a street fight (apparently on the losing end, judging from the outcome) and died from the incident's after-effects at age 37. His influence remains inescapable to this day -- it's unlikely that a blues harpist exists on the face of this earth who doesn't worship Little Walter." ~ Bill Dahl
