Various - Chicken Stuff Houston Ghetto Blues

Some wild Texas blues recorded in the early to late 60's. 6 tracks from Hop Wilson, 2 from Big Walter and 4 from Juke Boy Bonner. My favourite been Juke Boy.
Hop Wilson also has a cd out called "Houston Ghetto Blues"which includes the tracks here plus more from the same session. I haven't heard it but if it's more of what's on the lp then go for it.

Let me know if you want any of these.

Just in case anyone gets confused the Big Walter on this album is not Walter Horton but Big Walter Price (The Thunderbird) one of his tracks here "My Tears" features blistering guitar by the then relatively unknown Albert Collins.

@ Bob Mac,

The first 2 albums have been posted in the past and I'll get around to reposting them soon.
Steel Guitar Flash would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry Xyros it's low bitrate 128kbps, I know you only like the higher bitrates.

A lot of the early stuff I was collecting in MP3 is lower bitrate as I was backing up to CD, then to DVD. These days I use 500gig and 1 Terabyte externals so file sizes are no longer an issue.

No problem, it turn up one day. I've also got a ton of mp3's that are at 128 or lower. Back at the end of the 90's I was glad to get a rip at 128. Times have changed.
