Jesse Anderson (born in Paris, Ak. on August, 21st, 1940) has lived in Oklahoma and Wichita (Kansas) - where he led the Blues Toppers - before going to Chicago during the early 60's. A forceful and impassionate singer, Jesse became part of a group of young innovative bluesmen like Fenton Robinson (with whom he co-wrote Somebody loan me a dime), Earl Hooker, Otis Rush, Syl and Jimmy Johnson. He recorded a handful of great 45s during the 1960's for several labels (Federal, Cadet, Thomas, Outta Cyte) in which he mixes perfectly the sounds of the then uprising Soul Music with the gritty, harsh and gutsy feeling of the Chicago blues. Despite the very high quality of his music (I got a problem is a small hit), it was too down home for the new black public of the 70's and too "Soul" for the mostly white and international public of the blues revival! And Jesse didn't do too much musically after the early 70's. But this fine singer is still around, willing to perform and record the first rate blues album that he is certainly able to make.

Johnny Twist (Johnnie Lee Williams) is a singer-guitarist from Mississippi (born in the 1930's) who was a very familiar figure of Maxwell Street Market and the Chicago blues clubs. He has substantially been in the studios during this decade, recording behind several big names (Koko Taylor) and a handful of 45's under his own name. He is also still around, keeping a shop (and museum), "Old Dusty's Records" which gained him recently an article in the South Side Weekly. It should be nice if Johnny could be interviewed in depth and record the complete blues album he certainly deserves to make.

Willie Mc Neal (or should I say Willie Mc Neals?) is quite a mysterious artist. Although several specialists think that it's the same man who recorded under the names of Boll Weevil, Willie Mc Neal and Big Mac, it is hard to be affirmative when comparing the voices. If Rough dried woman is well known and is in fact Big Mac putting his vocal over an older instrumental track by Willie Williams (see an article about this bluesman in this blog), his other 45 is harder to find. There are other people that recorded under the Big Mac's moniker, namely a Milwaukee blues singer. Who is who? You can make your choice. --- Gérard Herzhaft, jukegh.blogspot.com
