CD Information

Little Victor's rowdy, joyous showmanship, larger than life personality, and deep understanding of the fine points of the down home tradition have made him a popular international festival attraction. This album finds Little Victor in Phoenix, Arizona, utilizing some great musicians to create a beautiful ensemble sound and a great support for Victor's wonderfully "back in the alley" guitar, harmonica, and vocals. This is new blues composed within the traditional genre: lyrical, snakey, lush, inventive, sleek/swamp/slope head-jive, rang-a tang, blue-gum, blue balls, blue blood. "He's got a black cat bone ... look out for your happy home." - Tav Falco

Artist Video

Little Victor-I Ain't Got No Place To Go TV3 (04:51)
"Victor began singing at the tender age of 14 -- hence the name "Little" Victor. His first band mostly featured songs from the Sun Records vaults. At 16, he picked up the blues harmonica and started to wail in the style of Jimmy Reed and Junior Parker. He learned the real blues from playing with real bluesmen in Memphis, Tennessee when he was still a young man. He played on Beale Street six days a week with High Water recording artist Uncle Ben Perry, the "King of Handy Park." Beale Street wasn't yet the tourist trap it is today. This is why Little Victor is sometimes billed as The Beale Street Blues Bopper. He also learned from Herman "Alabama" Alexander, Ben Wilson and Wilroy Sanders. Most of them were irascible characters and few other musicians wanted to play with them. They used distorted sounds, didn't make the "correct" changes and always seemed to be grouchy to their accompanists. Victor didn't mind. He knew this was the real stuff, the music that won't be found in any tablature books and can't be learned by sitting at home listening to records. Drifting down river to North Mississippi, Victor jammed in a variety of deep blues guitar tunings in juke joints with RL Burnside, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Junior Kimbrough, Frank Frost, Willie Foster and a host of other backwater bluesmen. He soaked up the blues feeling of these great men and women, applying it to his own repertoire and style... "
