    Personnel: Little Milton (vocals); Bobby Manuel (guitar); The Memphis Horns (horns); Lester Snell (keyboards); Big Joe Turner (bass guitar); Caleb Emphry, Al Jackson, Jr. (drums).
    Though he had a patchy recording career, the guitarist and singer Little Milton was a master at performing slow blues, and it's this aspect of his music that is highlighted in this entry in the STAX PROFILES series. Classics like "Blue Monday," "Walking the Back Streets and Crying," and "Little Bluebird" (check out the remarkable extended vocal note just before the fade on the latter track) feature Milton's vocals at their finely expressive best, and while his guitar playing isn't as instantly recognizable as, say, B.B. King's or his fellow Stax label mate Albert King, it's creative, funky, and often stunningly subtle.
