  • Little Walter,Baby Face Leroy,Muddy Waters unissued Parkway alternate takes released!Louis Records from the UK has recently issued two limited edition collector's 45rpm vinyl records of great interest to fans of classic Chicago blues. In 1950Parkway Records produced a session featuring the amazing trio ofLittle Walter,Baby Face Leroy andMuddy Waters. Most of these have been reissued onDelmark Records compilation called The Blues World of Little Walter. But low and behold, thanks to UK blues artist and collectorBig Joe Louis and hisLouis Records, we are now treated to some previously unheard material from this historic session, . One single features previously unreleased alternate takes ofLittle Walter's "Just keep Lovin' Her" andBaby Face Leroy's "Boll Weevil". A second single features extended versions, without fade outs of parts 1 and 2 ofBaby Face Leroy classic version of "Rollin' and Tumblin" with the amazing harmony of Leroy, Walter, and Muddy all moaning the melody line! This is simply top shelf blues that was inovating at the moment it was being recorded. To hear these great sides, and to order, you can clickhere. If you live in the USA it might be easier to order these fromNorton Records. Thanks Big Joe for making this priceless music available!
