Long before he arrived in Chicago, Horton
was knocking 'em dead with his amplified harmonica wizardry in Memphis. Sam Phillips
produced the classic sides that comprise much of this album in 1951, when Horton
was billed as "Mumbles." Sizzling backup by guitarists Joe Hill Louis
and Calvin Newborn urged the introverted harp giant on to dazzling heights on his earliest sides as a leader.
