Experience Hendrix and Reelin' In The Years Productions, one of the most respected sources of archival music footage, have joined forces to create Blues Legends, a series of video releases which showcase classic performances by some of the greatest blues artists of all time. Memphis Slim and Sonny Boy Williamson (aka " Rice " Miller) remain two of the greatest and most influential blues performers of all time. This third instalment in the acclaimed Blues Legends series features never-before released footage from the early-1960's filmed for European television (much of it during the famed American Folk Blues Festival tours ) . This DVD features complete performances of such favourites as " The Blues Is Everywhere " and " I'll Just Keep Singing The Blues " by Memphis Slim and rare live versions of such unforgettable Chess Records era sides as " Keep It To Yourself", " Your Funeral And My Trial " and " Bye Bye Bird " by Sonny Boy Williamson. As a special bonus, Blues Legends also includes rare bonus footage of three songs by blues pianist extraordinaire Otis Spann filmed live at the 1960 Newport Folk Festival.
