We kick off a short "blues LP" season on Be Bop Wino with this 1982 Italian release of "Confessin' The Blues" by Little Walter. At the moment I don't really have time to write up extensive notes, so you'll just have to take these posts as they are and dig around the web for further information!

This is a good compilation with only one or two tracks which could be classified as "filler." The rest is killer.

Tracks recorded 1953 - 1963. Musicians include: Little Walter Jacobs (vocal, harmonica); Louis Myers, Dave Myers, Robert Lockwood, Luther Tucker, Freddie Robinson, Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy (guitar); Otis Spann, Lafayette Leake (piano); Willie Dixon (bass); Fred Below, George Hunter (drums)
