Old Friends Honeyboy Edwards, Floyd Jones, Kansas City Red, Sunnyland Slim, Big Walter Horton

Honeyboy Edwards, Floyd Jones, Kansas City Red, Sunnyland Slim, Big Walter Horton

Old Friends…together for the first time…nearly fifty years after their paths first crossed, a legendary group of old blues friends from Memphis and the Mississippi Delta finally gathered in a Chicago studio to record together for the first time. Sunnyland Slim, Big Walter Horton, Floyd Jones and Honeyboy Edwards knew each other since the early 1930s: Kansas City Red, the youngster of the bunch at 54, met the others one by one during the 1940s, and over the years, in Chicago and down South, the bluesmen worked with one another off and on in various combinations. Not until 1979, at a prestigious Carnegie Hall concert in New York, did all five play together on the same stage, and it was 1980 before the quintet recorded as a unit. This recording session and the Carnegie Hall concert were the only times these musicians played as a quintet.
