The much under rated Jimmy 'Handyman' Jones

"This Cd has Jimmy's 4 charted Billboard hits, but there is much much more. A showcase of a true star. With 48 tracks it is a true "anthology",
the booklet is a little disappointing, it is a fold out type. Forget that, the music is just great. If you enjoyed, Good Timin' - Handyman, you'll be become lost in the magic of this double CD."

"Jimmy Jones two huge mega-hits "Good Timin'" and "Handy Man" give the impression this was the extent of classic songs from this groundbreaking artist to the casual listener but nothing could be further from the truth as this highly entertaining double Anthology illustrates...filled with great songs, clearly many pop/r&b artists who followed borrowed heavily from this sadly overlooked giant who should be acclaimed in the United States like he is in Europe! Great songs like two-sided "That's When I Cried" b/w "I Just Go For You" winning combo should have topped the charts but for some reason didn't receive exposure...hit sounds continue throughout awesome collection of varied and amazing songs happily containing no filler. Jimmy Jones a influential great singer/songwriter from the wondrous musical era where you had to have a real voice to make it and Jimmy Jones can sing up a storm...sensational collection a must-have for any true music lover!~
