"I knowed the Mississippi Sheiks. Yessir. Walked ten
miles to see them play. They was high-time...makin'
them good records, man.
" - Muddy Waters

The Mississippi Sheiks were the most popular blues artists of the 30s. Their repertoire drew upon all facets of black and white rural music: hard-edged blues, pop music, hokum, white country and traditional songs. Their rendition of "Sitting on Top of the World" has become an enduring standard.
