Two of the biggest names in blues deliver a set that blends the traditional delta blues sound with modern electric blues rock on Telarc's Legends, with Pinetop Perkins on piano and vocals and Hubert Sumlin on acoustic and electric guitars and vocals.
These two blues masters provide some of their most fulfilling moments in song as they reflect on their earliest musical experiences. Both were born in the Mississippi Delta and remain firmly rooted in their musical and cultural heritage. Both genius bluesmen moved north to Chicago to perform with two of the most distinguished artists in the electric blues genre—Perkins through his association with Muddy Waters and Sumlin in the company of Howlin' Wolf.
Together here for the first time, Perkins and Sumlin awaken the spirit of an incredible era.
