Some of the most exciting sounds on the Chicago blues scene during the 1950s feature the harmonica. Big Walter Horton's "Hard-Hearted Woman"/"Back Home To Mama" was his first Chicago record under his own name. Willie Dixon produced and from then on Horton played on many Dixon-produced sessions and toured with Dixon's band for many years. Big Walter was an internationally famous bluesman, who continued recording and touring until his death in 1981. Alfred Harris remains a mystery man, but more than forty-five years later, his lively, raw harmonica playing and singing will win him blues fans around the world. Contains three previously unissued alternate takes.
