Artist Biography by

"Mistreated Baby Blues" and "Little Milton's Boogie" are among the Little Milton sides performed in tandem with this artist, a guitarist and singer who may have also done a bit of drumming on the Mississippi blues scene. Any speculation regarding the latter would be the result not only of casual crediting: as would be expected there are a large number of people named Eddie White in the music business. In terms of this particular genre, the surname at least proves that White men can indeed play the blues.

Eddie White's vocal on "Boogie Woogie Woogie Baby" is effective enough to be considered his greatest legacy, the rhythm guitar work steady and insistent enough to suggest White's ability to assume frontman status. The record maintains an obscure status due to several compilation releases focusing on sometimes downright marginal independent blues recording sessions in the '40s and '50s. Labels such as Delta and Esoldun were originally responsible for this stage of Little Milton miking.
