• Eddie TAYLOR in Session – Diary of a Chicago Bluesman 1953-1957

FEATURING: JIMMY REED; JOHN LEE HOOKER; SUNNYLAND SLIM; JOHN BRIM; FLOYD JONES; LITTLE WILLIE FOSTER

Eddie Taylor was considered one of the greatest of all guitarists active during the heyday of Chicago blues scene. However despite featuring on numerous hit records he never had a hit under his own name, he was to be forever in the shadow of the artists he performed with during the period covered by this CD collection.

Tracks such as 'Ice Cream Man', 'Lifetime Blues', 'Bad Boy', 'Big Town Playboy', 'Dimples' exude a real quality and despite them not initially achieving hit status have now quite rightfully gone on to be Chicago blues classics.

Eddie Taylor never really achieved the stardom he so richly deserved he was though a very important element in the sub-genre of Chicago blues and without his presence on so many hit records would have been notably poorer. This great CD set from Jasmine showcases his early contributions and what a great guitarist and musician he was.
