Blues Blasters Boogie: Selected Classic Sides 1946-1955

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Blues and R&B pianist, singer, and songwriter Jimmy McCracklin recorded for a dizzying assortment of labels during his career, including sides for the Globe, Modern, Swing Time, Peacock, Irma, Checker, Chess, Mercury, Art-Tone, Imperial, and Bullseye Blues imprints, and undoubtedly many others, but what is remarkable is how consistent his output was, both as a singer and as a songwriter in spite of his nomadic label hopping. This four-disc, 98-track box set from JSP Records collects a healthy sampling of McCracklin's early sides, all recorded between 1945 and 1955.
