British born guitarist Snowy White (Born Terence Charles White) first became interested in music at the age of eleven when he was inspired by blues musicians Buddy Guy and B.B. King. He pursued his blues style in a number of bands however during the seventies Snowy made a reputation for himself playing numerous sessions for a wide variety of musicians such as Al Stewart, Cliff Richard and Peter Green. More famously Snowy toured as second guitarist with Pink Floyd augmenting the bands sound on the tours to promote the Animals and The Wall albums. By late 1979 however tiring of the session scene Snowy accepted the offer to join the rock band Thin Lizzy. Snowy recorded two albums with Thin Lizzy (Chinatown and Renegade) and completed a number of successful tours before deciding that the bands music and more importantly their lifestyle wasn't to his taste.
He formed his own band featuring drummer Richard Bailey
and bassist Kuma Harada. With this band he recorded his
first solo album entitled white Flames. A single lifted from
that album (Bird Of Paradise) became a surprise hit
reaching the British top ten in early 1983.
From here Snowy White recorded a number of blues based
albums all of which were warmly received by the blues
audience his records are aimed at.
Little Wing was originally released in 1998 and was highly successful in Europe at the time of release. This version now adds bonus tracks of previously unreleased recordings made by Snowy and The White Flames around the time of recording.
