Big Walter Horton
This short discography of blues harmonica mostly concentrates on  postwar Chicago. It is based on the list of recordings in my instructional book "Blues and Rock Harmonica,"
If the harmonicist was a sideman, the vocalist's name is listed below the title.
New titles will be added periodically.
