Overview

JSP's Devil's Jump compiles four CDs with 100 tracks containing a mixture of both rare and classic blues recorded between 1946-1957, on several indie blues labels of the era such as King, Deluxe, Okeh, and Jubilee. Highlighted throughout this set are 20 previously unissued recordings by Jimmie Gordon, Johnny Temple, Smokey Hogg, John Lee Hooker, Kid Thomas, Lee Brown, and Eddie Kirkland. These historic recordings have been remastered, and the majority of this material sounds decent as most JSP sets do. The liner notes are informative, listing personnel, dates, and concise history without going on ad nauseum. Since this is a budget-priced set, it is highly recommended for both the blues novice and collector.
