    Sleepy John Estes was an influence to such artist as Big Bill Broonzy and Arthur Crudup. In 1919, harmonica player Hammie Nixon teamed up with Estes and they remained partners until the 1950's. Estes moved to Chicago from his native Tennessee in 1930 where he recorded for the Decca, Bluebird and Champion labels.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (11/92, p.138) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a rich collection..."
    Option (Nov.-Dec./92, p.114) - "...represents the wealth of musical riches Estes recorded during his heyday...a rhythmically entrancing set of country blues...The playing is dynamic and propulsive throughout..."
    Living Blues (Sept.-Oct./92, p.77) - "...If you don't have any prewar Estes, this set is a logical choice; it samples the string band sides and gives you an overview of his prewar career..."
