Sunnyland Slim opens the Deep Blues today on a show that has many of his contemporaries through to more recent recordings of Keb Mo and Bob Dylan.
In on recording session at Chess Studio’s Sunnyland Slim brought in a young guitarist by the name of Muddy Waters. The rest is history. The list of people Sunnyland played with reads like a Who’s Who of the Blues: Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Big Walter Horton, Jimmy Rogers, Snooky Prior – many of whom listeners will have heard on the Deep Blues here on Eastside.
