Known for his distinctive slide guitar style of playing the blues, Hound Dog Taylor was a musician with an electrifying mastery of his trade and has achieved legendary status within Chicago blues circles.

It’s been 45 years since his untimely death, but his legend lives on in this fierce live performance. Joining him on stage, guitarist Brewer Phillips and drummer Ted Harvey find a perfect balance in their supporting roles to let the talent of Hound Dog Taylor speak for itself and pour out of the record.
