Phil Man didn’t eclipse his older sibling Buddy’s status being a blues superstar, and the truth is, Phil’s funky make of blues had not been captured correctly for posterity. But he continued to be an active appeal for the Chicago circuit, pursuing in his sibling’s footsteps and patiently looking forward to his own superstar to rise until his loss of life. Like his sibling, Phil Man used harpist Raful Neal (for ten years) before departing the Baton Rouge picture for Chicago in 1969. There he used his brother’s high-energy firm aswell as behind harpist Junior Wells (Phil managed guitar responsibilities with Sammy Lawhorn on Wells’ underrated middle-’70s Delmark record On Touch). Phil Man cut albums of his very own for JSP; these were generally without originality if not really spirit. Phil Man lost his struggle with liver organ and kidney tumor in August of 2008.
