Robert Nighthawk and his Flames of Rhythm: Robert Nighthawk (vocals, slide guitar); Johnny Young (vocals, guitar); Carey Bell (vocals, harmonica); Robert Whiteshead (drums).
Recorded live on the corner of 14th & Peoria, Chicago, Illinois in September 1964. Originally released on Rounder (2022). Includes liner notes by Peter Guralnick.
Digitally remastered by Don Ososke & Norman Dayron.
Blues archivist Norman Dayron recorded this set by Robert Nighthawk and his small ensemble in 1964. Three years later, Nighthawk died from heart failure, leaving these recordings to sit unreleased until 1980. This album was recorded live on a street corner in Chicago, and Nighthawk's playing and singing are still in peak form. This is made all the more riveting because of the energy of the crowd, which becomes more and more excited as the set moves along.
Nighthawk is joined by rhythm guitarist Johnny Young and drummer Robert Whitehead throughout, and harmonica player Carey Bell on a few selections. LIVE ON MAXWELL STREET is a no-frills, no-nonsense, honest, and committed performance. This and BRICKS ON MY PILLOW, which captures some of Nighthawk's late-'40s and early-'50s studio recordings, are stunning introductions to this vital bluesman.
