Chicago guitar player by way of Mississippi, Samuel “Magic Sam” Gene Maghett lived a short life (February 14, 1937 – December 1, 1969), but left a legacy of sweet soul blues. His guitar playing so unique for the time that the prolific blues songwriter Willie Dixon said of him, “Magic Sam had a different guitar sound…Most of the guys were playing the straight 12-bar blues thing, but the harmonies that he carried with the chords was a different thing altogether. This tune ‘All Your Love’, he expressed with such an inspirational feeling with his high voice. You could always tell him, even from his introduction to the music.”
