Here's some weekend musical poetry: my choices of the best harmonica players of popular music. I made a list of 13, which I culled down to 5, which was no easy task. Here it is:
Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller)
Special mention goes to Alan Wilson of Canned Heat as one of numerous great neglected harp players . I couldn't come up with any decent video for Alan. Too bad.
Obviously, a list like this couldn't be more subjective. I'm willing to listen to other nominations for best harmonica players. Meantime, enjoy the above.
