Jimmy Reed - The Vee-Jay Years Disc 5 & 6 (Disc 6 special outtakes)


The final two discs,numbers 5 & 6 and one
of the
greatest blues songwriters ever.He actually
blurs the line between old fashioned blues

(Southern Delta style transplanted to Chicago
urban blues)
and rhythm & blues.He sets the
standard when he
sang Bright Lights,Big City.
Reed's guitar playing,
singing and songwriting (a triple threat)
inspired
a lot of the earliest The Rolling Stones,The Animals,
and
countless other British Invasion bands,
and
reminded Americans how important their
blues
artists were and still are.What a wealth of
music,made in America.
