[Acrobat3250]
$17.00

Born on the same Mississippi plantation as Muddy Waters, and a half-brother of Memphis Slim, Boyd moved to Memphis in the late '30s and in 1941 headed for Chicago, working in steel mills to finance his music activities. He played on many musicians' sessions, and from 1947 recorded under his own name, initially for RCA, but subsequently for Regal, J.O.B., Herald and most notably Chess, before working with several other labels at the start of the '60s. His combination of boogie and jazz-tinged styles brought him an R&B No. 1 in 1952 with Five Long Years and subsequent Top 3 R&B hits with 24 Hours and Third Degree. This set comprises selected sides from the 66 tracks he released on singles across this era for the RCA-Victor, J.O.B., Herald, Chess, Bea & Baby, Keyhole, Mojo & Art-Tone labels.....................
