Down and Out Blues/In Memorium

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
In 2004, the Beat Goes On label reissued two legendary Sonny Boy Williamson aka Rice Miller albums, Down and Out Blues and In Memorium, originally released on Chess Records in 1959 and 1965, respectively. Both albums combined deliver 23 raucous cuts of Chicago blues, including the standards "Don't Start Me to Talkin'," "One Way Out," "Bring It on Home," "Fattening Frog for Snakes," and "Your Funeral and My Trial." While this is a quick way to pick up both of these albums at one time, keep in mind that numerous Sonny Boy compilations are available on Chess with remastered tracks. One way or the other, you can't go wrong with this material.
