"Check out JSP's box set: Memphis Shakedown: More Jug Band Classics, and compare this track list with that of Disc One. It's the same! So buy that one! You'll get four discs of primo Jug Band for the price of this one disc. The sound is much better on the JSP set too!"
Up there with the best

"I did not know about Jack Kelly, but the name "The South Memphis Jug Band" sounded promising. And the music here more than lives up to its promise !
Jack Kelly has a great blues voice and phrasing. He is accompanied by the best Memphis musicians of his time - Will Batts and Dan Sane - who were also working regularly with Frank Stokes and The Memphis Jug Band.
Jack Kelly is the bluesiest of the Memphis musicians - more than Stokes, Jim Jackson, and even Furry Lewis. He sticks to the blues form - applying his rough voice in a timeless fashion.
I love this music and I am sure any blues fan will feel the same."
