Remixed blues songs Little Walter Rhythm and Blues hit “Up The Line”

Little Walter’s music is good material for a remix. His biggest Hit “My Babe”, has earlier been remixed successfully by JPOD and other DJ’s. Recently I walked into another great remixed blues song of the blues harmonica king. I share with you Little Walter’s “Up The Line”, which was remixed by Catalist and featured on the Electro-Blues Vol.2 album.  

Electro Blues Vol. 2 Album

Electro Blues vol 2. was released by Freshly Squeezed Music, and is full of danceable songs of artists like Freddie King, Etta James, Wynonie Harris and Amos Milburn.  Freshly Squeezed Music is a British independent record label and music publisher.  The Label is currently sitting atop Europe’s  booming electro swing scene, 

Little Walter “Up The Line”

Little Walter’s “Up The Line”, is a song that in its original version would fit in every dance hall today. The driving sax, melodic harmonica and grooving piano really make this song. On top, we add the soulful vocals of Walter and you’ve got it all!

Compilation album of Blues remixes

This album is featuring one side of vintage and another of vintage-influenced sound. Taking a fresh look at what constitutes the blues, both musically and in terms of attitude, this album is not one for the purist. Side-stepping the cliches (and taking the inevitable flak), it aims to breathe new life into a genre that once defined as Cool!

“Up The Line” was written by Little Walter and Willie Dixon and released as a single by Checker Records in 1963.
