(1999 'Delmark') (65:03/14) Ein überraschend schönes Album, das im Wesentlichen die Stile Jimmy Reeds und Slim Harpos zusammenbringt. Duncan, 65 Jahre alt, spielt simpel doch mit viel Gefühl, und die Band liefert den perfekten Background. Schlicht doch ergreifend! Harmonica-Blues im Stile der 50er und 60er Jahre / this is a great record from a virtually unknown. Duncan's 65 years old, lived on the Westside most of his life, and plays harp in the styles of Jimmy Reed and Slim Harpo. Mostly originals, excellent support. Simple but superb! LITTLE ARTHUR DUNCAN - hca/voc, ROCKIN' JOHNNY - gtr, BILLY FLYNN - gtr, SHO KOMIYA - bass, KENNY SMITH - drums. MARTIN LAND - hca (4 cuts).
With the Rockin' Johnny Band and special guests Eddie Taylor, Jr. and Billy Flynn. Little Arthur Duncan is a powerful blues singer and harmonica player who pounds away at you with his voice, reminiscent of the heavy, unpolished blues singers like Floyd Jones. Arthur has been surrounded by the classic postwar sounds almost all of his life. At sixty five, he's part of the second generation of Chicago bluesmen, just behind Muddy, Wolf, Sonny Boy #2 and Elmore James. Singin' With The Sun showcases Little Arthur's talents as dynamic performer and singer of unique urgency.
