Juke Joints

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Four discs of ragged, rocking blues and R&B that might have blasted from a jukebox in the 1950s South, this generous set features both familiar names and not-so-familiar names, and that's part of the fun of it. From the first track on the first disc, Slim Harpo's classic Excello Records side "I'm a King Bee," Juke Joints roars into life and never lets up. Welcome to Saturday night.
