Record Label: Blues Boulevard/Music Avenue
Format: CD

Billy Boy Arnold is one of the first Windy City Blues singers actually born in Chicago.  Arnold learned to play his 'Mississippi Saxophone' from the original Sonny Boy Williamson in the late 1940s.  By the early 1960s, he was performing with Bo Diddley.  His songs have been covered by Eric Clapton and the Yardbirds.  This album was recorded in London and shows Arnold and the Groundhogs tearing through the songs with a rawness and energy previously unheard of on recordings by white Rock bands backing African -American blues musicians. Justly, at the time of it's original release in 1977, the then influential magazine Black Echoes voted the record "Blues LP of the the Year".
