Sonny Boy Williamson's original 1959 album made it to digital reissue but has now been supplanted by MCA's exhaustive The Essential Sonny Boy Williamson. Still, for a budget price, there are a dozen unforgettable tracks: "Don't Start Me to Talkin'," and his Checker debut; "All My Love in Vain," "Wake Up Baby," "99," "Cross My Heart," "Let Me Explain," and "The Key (To Your Door)."
AVID Roots here presents two classic Champion Jack Dupree albums plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. 'Blues From The Gutter' and 'Champion Jack's Natural & Soulful Blues' from 1958 and 1959 respectively are complimented by a host of Singles from the 1940's and 50's, many of which are finding their way onto CD for the very first time courtesy of AVID! We kick things off with Jack's first two albums, 'Blues From The Gutter' recorded in New York in 1958 and considered by many to be his finest work to that point and perhaps his finest work ever! We follow this with an album dear to British blues enthusiasts hearts and recorded in 1959 in London using such stalwart British bluesmen as Alexis Korner and Jack Fallon……'Champion Jack's Natural & Soulful Blues'. Concluding side one and onto side two we have a selection of Jack's singles recorded in the 40's and 50's for such diverse labels as Continental, Red Robin, King and Groove & Vik. Unlike many bluesmen born around the early 1900's Champion Jack Dupree went on to have a very long and full life, travelling extensively around Europe and recording for many different labels as witnessed on this fine double CD. He finally settled in Germany where he died in 1992 having recorded over 40 albums!
