"this is a great CD from Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, recorded in 1969 (on the Delmark label out of Chicago)with T Bone Walker, Jay McShann, and Hal Singer. This guy sure knew how to belt out the blues, and played a pretty mean sax, too. Cleanhead had been recording since the late 40's, and I guess you would have to categorize his earlier stuff as "jump blues", similar to Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, Joe Turner. Anyway, this CD holds up and you will enjoy it a lot."
Another good one....

"Never heard of Cleandhead?? It's time you had. And if you do know who he is, then you already own this album. I'd say this is second only to "Cleanhead and Cannonball", and it's prime Cleandhead. People are always ranting about Muddy Water's voice, but this guy has it in spades. And he plays sax!!
Check it out....."

"Its nice to have this recording again readily available on CD. I would not call this an essential release (saving that for some of his original sessions), but it is certainly a most enjoyable session that originally was issued on the French Black & Blue label. The session had the shouter-alto saxophonist with an all star band that included Jay McShann on piano, T-Bone Walker on guitar and tenor saxophonist Hal Cornbread SInger. Its a good mix of classic songs that Cleanhead made famous like the title track, 'Somebodys Sure Got to Go', 'Juice Head Baby,' Big Bill Broonzys 'Just a Dream,' 'Old Maid Boogie,' along with Joe Turners 'Wee Wee Baby,' Percy Mayfields 'Please Send Me Someone to Love,' and Duke Ellingtons 'Things Ain't What They Used to Be.' Vinson is in terrific form both vocally and instrumentally and the band swings wonderfully for a most enjoyable session that is welcome to be readily available.
