I couldn't help myself. I just had to post this vid of Little Walter playing the fire out of his harp. Those that speak of LW's skills deteriorating late in his career should listen carefully to what the master's doing here. I say that he was in total command of his sound and the instrument before he died. He might have slipped a bit in his overall performance, but he ruled over the blues harp.
