Magic Sam - Black Magic

Magic Sam was born Sam Gene Maghett in Mississippi. He learned how to play guitar and sing from listening to Muddy Waters records. When he was 19, he moved to Chicago and signed with Cobra Records (the label that launched Buddy Guy's career). He recorded the remarkable "Black Magic" and released it in 1968 on Delmark. He had a phenomenal performance at the Ann Arbor Blues Festival in 1969 that got him bookings all around the U.S. and Europe. He ended up dying of a heart attack at 32 before he left for the tour. With his death, blues and music in general lost an influential and perhaps soon to be star blues guitarist and songwriter. This record is one of my favorites, from the swinging "I Just Want A Little Bit" to the straight up blues tune "I Have The Same Old Blues", this record is awesome from start to finish.
