Summary:
"Earl 'Lil' Choo-Choo' Johnson left home at the age of 10, with only his father's guitar, and stepped into the world of Delta blues. A guitar prodigy, his music led him to play with blues legends, like Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Son House, Howlin' Wolf, and Muddy Waters. Lil' Choo-Choo's story is a history of the blues, from sharecropper's shacks on Dockery's Plantation and whiskey-soaked juke joints in Depression-era Mississippi to the swinging clubs of post-war Memphis and Chicago. It encompasses the heydey of Delta blues, the birth of rock and roll, the British invasion, the blues revival of the 1960s, and beyond. " --from cover.
