Sonny Boy Williamson was born Aleck Ford and known as Aleck Miller before adopting the familiar moniker. An earlier bluesman, born Rice Miller (1914-1948), went by the same name, though he died before this one showed up on the scene. Though this second Sonny Boy was prone to wildly contradictory biographical "facts" and unreliable self-mythologizing, his musical legacy is quite solid. His edgy singing and harmonica playing was like a dagger lunging forward in the teeth of a rhythmically insistent bear. His use of dynamics was subtle but insistent, allowing a relatively quiet number like "Bring It On Home" to simmer with an unshakable air of drama and danger.
These two albums appeared after his death in 1965 and cemented his reputation for subsequent generations of blues musicians. Williamson's influence was also key to the development of the various British blues bands in the '60s (The Yardbirds, John Mayall, etc.).
