Description

Big Walter Horton was recognised as one of the blues' most creative harmonica players. Supremely gifted, he was dedicated to the music rather than his career. He could reach emotional extremes with little apparent effort and then somehow dig even deeper into the expressiveness of his instrument. Here, as leader and in bands led by other artists, is some of his best work. Here also is 'Deep Blues' - his famous collaboration with fellow harpist Carey Bell - on CD for the first time.

Reviews:

1. AllMusic - Steve Leggett
Big Walter Horton was a giant on the amplified harmonica, bringing the electricity of the instrument into the modern blues era with his works as a sideman and as a bandleader. This three-disc box does a great job of looking at the length, breadth, and scope of his career with a disc of Horton solo and as a bandleader in the 1950s; a second disc of him working with the likes of Joe Hill Louis, Willie Nix, Mose Vinson, Johnny Shines, Tampa Red, Sunnyland Slim, and others during the same decade; and a third disc featuring Horton's 1970s work with Carey Bell. It’s a nice and rounded overview of a remarkable musician.
