 Blues Kingpins
James and harpist Rice Miller-renowned throughout the fertile Delta as Sonny Boy Williamson despite the existence of another harmonica ace by the same name up in Chicago--worked as a duo during the late '30s, but the guitarist's musical pursuits were interrupted when he was drafted into the U.S. Navy in 1943.
Elmore's last offering on Flair from the same session paired the similarly insistent "Blues Before Sunrise" with a comparatively mellow "Good Bye," the latter marking the first--and in all likelihood, the last--time the harmonies of a doo-woppish vocal group cushioned James' rough-edged vocal delivery (somehow it didn't come off as sounding incongruous).
James was rooming with Homesick and his family when a final heart attack fatally felled him on the evening of May 24, 1963.
