Little Walter Plays Blue Midnight

This is a fantastic recording of the master, Little Walter, playing Blue Midnight.  What could I possibly say about Little Walter that hasn’t been said before?  I can only agree with decades of historians, musicians, and listeners to say that this man was one of the original gods of blues harmonica.  His bends are the stuff of legends and his playing is so emotive that you can’t help but to feel the depth of his soul in his notes.  I don’t really need to intro this song much, just sit back and enjoy!  (Bonus video follows of Little Walter’s induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, including a short 2 minute documentary)
