Hoodoo Hoodoo

One of the first great Blues harmonica players John Lee (Sonny Boy) Williamson recorded over 120 sides for the Bluebird/RCA record label between 1937-1947. He was only 34 years old when he was murdered on Chicago's South Side in 1948. He was know as Sonny Boy Williamson 'No1' as Rice Miller another superb harp player who would later call himself Sonny Boy Williamson throughout his legendary career. This wonderful 'fairy tale' track can be found on the CD 'Complete Works Vol 5 1945-1947' on Document Records.
