Mick Rainsford of "Blues in Britain" states: Lil’ Davy Max plays vintage Chicago blues the way they should be played, steeped in the Windy City tradition replete with guitar, harp and piano melding as one in the ensemble style that was a feature of the town’s blues in the 50s and 60s.
Many times as a young boy I stole out of my second story bedroom, jumped off the back door overhang, ran down the highway and hitch hiked 90 miles to Madison, WI. After all, where can a young farm boy who loved the blues see and hear the likes of Muddy Waters, Magic Sam, Otis Rush or John Lee Hooker? Marsh Shapiro's " Nitty Gritty" offered just such a venue. There was only one catch. I couldn't go inside because I was only 14. There was a large window by the corner and I could see the bandstand. I would stack some boxes and crates that I found behind the building and listened to every note. I would have to hitch hike back. Sometimes I crashed at somebody's house because after all the times I had been there people kind of got to know me as " The Kid" who loved the blues but was underaged.
