Big Walter Horton

The following clip of Big Walter, Honeyboy Edwards and Johnny Shines was part of the session held on September 3, 1969, at the Thunderbird Motel in Chicago. Johnny Shines called Big Walter in for the session, and Adelphi sent a taxi to pick him up from home and deliver him to the motel. Upon arrival, Horton apologized for his appearance. It seems he had been in a fight the night before and had just returned home from the emergency room when Shines called. The white stuff you see on his hand is medical tape.

Big Walter takes a Big Yawn.
