An American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter, from Mississippi. One of the greatest bluesmen ever. His harp, vocals, and songwriting have never been surpassed. All his records are classics, but this one is truly unique — it's the cream of two rare, acoustic albums cut in Denmark in 1963. Gentle, personal blues with brilliant harmonica, accompanied by only Matt Guitar Murphy and Memphis Slim on piano.

When 'Willie' Rice Miller aka Sonny Boy Williamson, made these intimate, casual recordings in 1963, he was already (probably) 66 years old. Most of his long career was over; only two years later he would die in his little apartment in Helena, Arkansas. He was recognized as a giant throughout the blues world as a harmonica player, vocalist, songwriter, prolific recording artist, live performer and wildly colorful personality.


Starting in 1951 and continuing into the '60s, Sonny Boy made some of the most influential blues records of all time; Help Me, Eyesight To the Blind, Nine Below Zero, Mighty Long Time, One Way Out, Don't Start Me Talking, Keep It To Yourself, Bring It On Home, and dozens more. But he had never recorded before like he did on this one night in Copenhagen: in a totally acoustic setting, sometimes with just his voice and harmonica, sometimes with only Matt "Guitar" Murphy backing him, sometimes joined by his old friend Memphis Slim on piano. Drums appear on only one song. These recordings capture a personal, improvisational side of Sonny Boy's music that has been rarely heard on record.


Analogue Production's definitive 45RPM pressing of Keep It To Ourselves spreads the essential album over four sides of vinyl, reducing the distortion and high frequency loss as the wider-spaced grooves let your stereo cartridge track more accurately. Mastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio, pressed at Quality Record Pressings and featuring deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket from Stoughton Printing.
