      in Los Angeles at age 61. Harris recorded and toured with John Lee
      Hooker, Frank Zappa, Harvey Mandell and John Mayall and released a
      number of solo efforts. Check out "Fiddler On The Rock" on Music-Disc,
      and "Sugarcane`s Got The Blues" on BASF.
      ---------------------------

      The great Chicago Blues guitarist Magic Sam (Sam Meghett)died on this
      day in 1969 in Chicago at age 32.Sam Maghett was on his way to stardom
      when a heart attack cut his life tragically short.Still, Magic Sam left
      behind a legacy of Blues recordings that are tremendously influential to
      this day. Sam had a staccato, fingerpicking style that helped create
      Chicago`s "West Side" sound, a syle he and fellow West Siders Buddy Guy
      and Otis Rush popularized in the 50s and 60s.Sam began to rise to
      prominence in the late sixties and his albums for Delmark, "West Side
      Soul" and "Black
      Magic" are true classics and are highly recommended. Two discs on the
      Flyright label, "Magic Rocker" and "Otis Rush and Magic sam" are also
      recommended, along with "1957-1966" on Paula.

      law that required blacks to sit toward the rear of buses, (there
      actually was one), was eventually struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court.
