Eddie Boyd was a blues pianist, singer and songwriter who made his primary impact on the Chicago scene during the 1940s and 50s, before becoming a popular figure in the American Folk Blues tours of Europe during the 60s and beyond. Born on the same Mississippi plantation as Muddy Waters, and a half-brother of Memphis Slim, he moved to Memphis in the late 30s and in 1941 headed for Chicago, working in steel mills to finance his music activities. He played on many musicians sessions, and from 1947 recorded under his own name, initially for RCA, but subsequently for Regal, J.O.B., Herald and most notably Chess, before working with several other labels at the start of the 60s.
