If you love the real things, the RAW blues, you cant miss with this. --Jimmie Vaughn

A fresh, exciting, thoroughly electrified guitar sound exploded across Chicago's west side during the late 50s. Future legends pushed the stylistic envelope, taking the ensemble approach perfected by Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf adding their blazing lead guitar solos to the mix. But the king of West Side blues guitar was a young gent named Sam Maghett, better known by the singular stage name, Magic Sam. He had a style all his own, laced with vibrato and rapid fire barrages of bent notes. His soul steeped vocal delivery was every bit as distinctive as his fretwork. The precise date when this performance was captured at Silvio s has been in question over the years. December of 1966 is sited by one reliable source and that seems realistic.
