Jimmy Reed - Rockin' With Reed


The complete album + 6 bonus tracks - 180g virgin vinyl - limited edition. There is simply no sound in the blues as instantly recognizable, and as easy to play and sing as the music of the great Jimmy Reed. Even though he is one of the bestselling bluesmen of all time, most blues historians consider Reed to be a minor figure in the Chicago blues pantheon. Despite being a merely average guitarist and harmonica player (in a city littered with talent), he possessed a warm, friendly voice, lyrical phrasing and a sense of melody that appealed to record buyers. Presented here is Reed's second album, Rockin' with Reed, originally released by the Vee-Jay label in 1959.


4.5 STARS - AllMusic:

"Slow blues, ballads, boogie numbers, Reed could do it all, and with Eddie Taylor's restrained flourishes the impressive playing is spread around these recordings in large, healthy portions."
