Classified [Remixed and Expanded Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
While there has suddenly been a flood of CDs featuring masterful New Orleans keyboard wizard and vocalist James Booker, his best release arguably remains Classified. The 12-track set was a landmark album, as Booker displayed every facet of his distinctive style. He did up-tempo blues, quasi-classical, rock and R&B, making them all sound easy while performing frequently awesome keyboard feats.
