The first great harmonica player of the modern blues era, Sonny Boy Williamson stood right at the junction of country blues and the rapidly emerging urban blues sound, and Williamson's signature songs like "Good Morning School Girl," "Sugar Mama Blues, " "Ground Hog Blues" and "Stop Breaking Down" became virtual templates for the Chicago blues. His call and response harmonica lines were a huge influence on Little Walter, Junior Wells, Rice Miller (who actually billed himself as Sonny Boy Williamson following the original Williamson's death in 1948) and literally every blues harp player who ever picked up the instrument in the later half of the 20th century. He was also a disarmingly good singer, managing to sound casual and approachable (a trait he may have picked up from Sleepy John Estes, a one-time traveling companion on the Southern juke circuit) even as his harp continually brought the heavy gravel. Williamson recorded over 120 sides for RCA's Bluebird Records between 1937 and 1948, and this two-disc set has most of the essential ones, including the above mentioned template pieces.

Fleetwood Mac: The Blues Period

Fleetwood Mac led two consecutive lives: a blues-driven outfit from the 1960s led by Peter Green, one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, and another, a pop-rock band that became one of the most acclaimed groups of its era. Their 1977 album, “Rumours”, remains, forty years later, one of the best-selling records of all time and yet the band’s lesser-known early years are no less captivating.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.

Eric Clapton's stocking filler

A Christmas album (“Happy Xmas”) including an EDM version of “Jingle Bells”, “Lonesome Christmas” or a bluesier “White Christmas”: sound like a good idea? Well, Eric Clapton's gone and done it. After all, if even Bob Dylan has ridden roughshod over tradition (on “Christmas in the Heart”), why not "God" himself? This is far from the first time that the English musician, coming up on 74 years of age, has taken a step back from more or less traditional Blues, but this is something else...
