Memphis Slim & Sonny Boy Williamson: Live In Europe

Bill Wasserzieher, Reelin' in the Years/Hip-O/Experience Hendrix DVD, 2004

MEMPHIS SLIM AND Sonny Boy Williamson - even their names, their performing aliases, have a bigger-than-life aura. And though both passed away decades ago, time has not diminished their stature. If anything, they are to the blues world what Wild Bill, Bat Masterson, Calamity Jane, and Billy the Kid are to the old West - the stuff of legends, real-life characters grown to mythic proportions.
