Robert Nighthawk was one of the most distinctive slide guitarists and blues vocalists ever, with a supple, emotive style that bridged pre-war acoustic and post-war urban electric styles. This exceptional live recording offers a more complex view of Nighthawk than his small discography had previously suggested. Alongside several extended slide workouts, Nighthawk plays several pieces with a raucous, slashing approach that is encouraged by the shouts of his audience in the street. Here is an exciting and rare glimpse of vintage blues music played by a master in a relaxed, spontaneous setting.
