Personalities | Little Milton | Sixties | Jazz & Blues

(Guitar, vocals, 1934–2005)

Born to sharecroppers in Inverness, Mississippi, the country music Milton Campbell heard in radio broadcasts from the Grand Ole Opry shaped his soulful sound as much as gospel and blues. After regional success, he signed to the Chess Records subsidiary Checker in 1961 and cut the classics ‘If Walls Could Talk’, ‘Feel So Bad’ and ‘Grits Ain’t Groceries’, among others. Up until his death in 2005 he was a major artist on the chitlin circuit, recording for Jackson, Mississippi’s Malaco Records.
