Jimmy Witherspoon...Plus

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
When it was issued as an LP in 1958, Jimmy Witherspoon was just a random -- and short -- roundup of ten tracks from 1949-1951 singles he'd done for Modern. As is typical for the Ace label, however, the CD reissue adds a lot of value, tacking on eight bonus tracks from other 1948-1951 singles, as well as lengthy historical liner notes.

This isn't necessarily a lesser companion piece to Blowin' in from Kansas City, including as it does four national R&B hits "Ain't Nobody's Business," "No Rollin' Blues," "Big Fine Girl," and "Once There Lived a Fool". It's not up there with the singer's best recordings, as it doesn't have the most forceful of the jazz-blues fusions he'd make. It's respectable early R&B, with a bunch of sides recorded in concert including "Ain't Nobody's Business," "No Rollin' Blues," and "Big Fine Girl" with a spontaneous rawness unusual even by the standards of this earlier, more rudimentary era. "Jump Children" aka "Good Jumpin'" is a pretty transparent imitation of "Good Rockin' Tonight," however.
