Currently celebrating 30 history-making years together, LIL' ED & THE BLUES IMPERIALS ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor's edge. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil' Ed Williams and his Blues Imperials -\-\ bassist (and Ed's half-brother) James "Pookie" Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton -\-\ deliver gloriously riotous, rollicking and intensely emotional blues.

Their newest release, THE BIG SOUND OF LIL’ ED & THE BLUES IMPERIALS is musically electrifying, emotionally intense and downright fun. It features Lil’ Ed Williams' incendiary guitar playing and soulful, passionate singing, with the ragged-but-right Blues Imperials cooking like mad alongside him. Williams wrote or co-wrote all but two of album’s 14 songs (those two being written by Lil' Ed's legendary uncle, Chicago slide guitar king and master songwriter J.B. Hutto).

With THE BIG SOUND OF LIL’ ED & THE BLUES IMPERIALS (the group's ninth Alligator release), the band continues to bring their blistering Chicago blues to “Ed Heads” new and old.
