Love Me With A Feeling !

A West-Side blues guitarist of the same graduating class as people like Otis Rush, Magic Sam combined a blazing guitar with a wonderful soulful voice to do some of the best blues to come out of Chicago in the late 60s.
He went on to record a few albums for Delmark that showed the beginnings of a brilliant career that ended up being a major influence on modern blues artists.
But he died of a heart attack at 32, and we'll never know where Magic Sam might have gone.

This is so great. I`m ashamed to say I had never heard of Magic Sam before. Now I`m off to buy some of his stuff!

Try "The Essential: The Cobra and Chief Recordings 1957-1961" & "Rockin' Wild in Chicago" (live-crap sound but essential) to start!
