I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Five Long Years - Eddie Boyd

Edward Riley Boyd was born on Frank Moore's Stovall Plantation near Clarksdale, Mississippi, on November 25, 1914, although a birth certificate later put the date at November 13. As a youth, he taught himself how to play piano and guitar, and he worked the juke joints in and around the Mississippi delta and then moved to Memphis in 1936. In Memphis he often played on Beale Street with his band the Dixie Rhythm Boys. Hoping to record, Boyd left Memphis for Chicago in 1941. There he worked in the city's blues joints with Johnny Shines, " Sonny Boy Williamson, and the famous Muddy Waters. Boyd played in the recording studio regularly.
