• Little MILTON - Chicago Blues and Soul Via Memphis and St Louis - His Early Years 1953-1962

Little Milton is one of the very few blues artists who ever managed to stay at the top of his game in a career that lasted from the late 1940s until his death in 2005 at the age of 71. In the pantheon of blues greats only B. B. King and Bobby 'Blue' Bland have comparable careers.

This collection features all of his notable 45s recorded for Sun, Bobbin and Chess between 1953-1962.

The 29 tracks on this superb set feature Milton's stunning vocals and guitar. Listening to the earlier tracks you will hear elements of Fats Domino, B. B. King, Bobby Bland and even Elmore James, then as the material moves into 1957 Milton really finds his own unique vocal style.

Fully detailed liner notes covering his career.
