"In the mid-'60s, former Sun rockabilly artist Billy Lee Riley made an odd detour into instrumental harmonica music, of which Big Harmonica Special is his second album. Riley's repertoire is admirably "authentic" given his rockabilly pedigree, encompassing rock and R&B tunes of the sort any hepcat would approve. Riley takes songs from sources like Chuck Berry, Dale Hawkins, Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Leiber & Stoller, and others, then interprets them through his harmonica as swampy, stomping rockers that sustain the intensity from start to finish."
