Blues and R&B legends Little Willie Littlefield and Champion Jack Dupree had much in common.

Both had extensive recording careers stretching back into the 1940s and recording for independent record companies; both decided to live in Europe;
both recorded albums in Europe - and they headlined at the first ever Burnley Blues Festival in the UK in 1989.

Blues fans were treated to a weekend of blues, R&B and boogie with Willie topping the bill on March 23rd and Jack the following evening - backed by the Big Town Playboys, who perfectly recreated the type of rhythm and blues Willie and Jack recorded in the late 1940s and 1950s.

The tracks here come from their shows at Burnley with the exception of three tracks Willie recorded with the Playboys at the Belgium Blues Festival in 1986 - later broadcast on national BBC radio on the Paul Jones show.

“Little Willie Littlefield was on the best form I’ve ever seen in him. He gave us a selection of straight blues and boogie.” Tony Collins, Juke Blues magazine

“Jack Dupree and the Big Town Playboys proceeded to tear the place apart with ‘50s classics - the packed audience cheered him on after every number.” Tony Burke, Blues & Rhythm magazine
