Liner Notes
OUT OF OBSCURITY, HAVING DISAPPEARED FROM THE BLUES SCENE FOR ALMOST FIVE YEARS, COMES THE TRUE BOSS MAN OF THE BLUES. THE AUTHENTIC AMBASSADOR OF THE DELTA BLUES, SINCE THE EARLY 1950'S, JIMMY REED'S MUSIC ROSE TO, NATIONAL FAME IN THE. R&B MARKET, AND CROSSED OVER INTO COUNTRY AND POP MARKETS. HIS TRUE COUNTRY STYLE AND THE SIMPLICITY OF HIS LYRICS MADE HIM UNIQUE, AND HIS EKERY PERFORMANCE UNPARALLELED. THROUGHOUT HIS TWENTY YEAR RELATIONSHIP. WITH MODERN AND URBAN BLUES MEN AND HIS BIG CITY ENVIRONMENT, JIMMY HAS MANAGED TO HOLD ON TO HIS HERITAGE. DESPITE THE EMERGING OF ROCK AND ROLL WHICH COULD HAVE EASILY OVERSHADOWED HIS LAZY, CASUAL, COUNTRY STYLE; JIMMY STILL RETAINED THE ROOTS OF HIS BEGINNING, JUST AS IT WAS WHEN HE RECORDED SOME OF HIS FIRST SIDES FOR VEE JAY. THIS ALBUM WILL DISPLAY ONLY ONE THING, THAT JIMMY REED IS ONE OF THE WORLD'S TRUE -INNOVATORS OF THE BLUES, AND LEAVES NO DOUBT THAT HE IS A LEGEND IN HIS OWN TIME. HOPEFULLY THESE SIDES WILL ASSURE JIMMY REED OF HIS WELL EARNED PLACE IN THE BLUES HALL OF FAME.--ED WINFIELD ALL SONGS PUBLISHED BY SHERLYN PUBLISHING CO. BMI AND SABARCO PUBLISHING CO.
