I'm interested in how many different suggestions we get to this one, but....

If you had to choose one - just one - harp-based song to listen to, what would it be? Remember, just one.

Evening Sun by Johnny Shines. If Big Walter had never recorded anything else, this song would have labelled him as great. His hapr playing is as bad as they come, plus the Johnny Shines exhibiting some fabulous vocals. It's a perfect blues tune.

That's a tough one,but I really like "Last Night",by Little Walter. Some great lyric playing and a real smorgasbord of staggered rhythms and tone variations, from delicate warbles to power trombone sounds.
