Robert Jr. Lockwood & The Aces: Steady Rollin' Man
(1970 'Delmark') (41:06/14) Lässig-entspanntes Chicagoblues-Album, begleitet von der besten Rhythmsection aller Zeiten, THE ACES; plus zwei alternative Fassungen/beautiful laid-back Chicago style blues album, backed by the greatest ryhthm section of all time, THE ACES; including 2 alternate takes.
Robert Jr. Lockwood's music shows the influence of not only his stepfather,
Robert Johnson but also that of jazz guitarists Charlie Christian and Eddie
Durham. By the mid-50's he found himself in the enviable position of being
THE studio guitar player in Chicago. He can be heard on classic blues songs
like Little Walter's "My Babe" and "Boom, Boom, Out Go The Lights"; Sonny
Boy Williamson's "Nine Below Zero" and "Eyesight To The Blind." He also recorded
with Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, Eddie Boyd, Willie Mabon, Sunnyland Slim, Roosevelt
Sykes and others. This 1970 session was Robert's first album as a leader!
