The plural "kings" comes from the fact that this CD is divided between Alfred "Blues King" Harris and Big Walter. You'll hear Walter's first Chicago recordings under his own name ('54); he plays Hard-Hearted Woman; Back Home to Mama; Card Game; Remember Me, and more!

Big Walter Horton's 'Hard-Hearted Woman' /'Back Home To Mania' was his first Chicago record under his own name, though he had recorded earlier. Willie Dixon produced the session and from then on Horton played on many Dixon-pro-duced sessions for Chess, Cobra and other labels, and toured with Dixon's band for many years. Big Walter, of course, was an internation-ally famous bluesman, who continued recording and touring until his death in 1981  . Interpret: Walter Horton & Alfred Harris.
