Synopsis

Amazon.com
Jimmy Reed gets three discs to show his stuff, which is probably more than plenty for most but not enough for some. Reed wasn't the larger-than-life sort that many of his contemporaries were, which kind of adds to his modest appeal. Stylistically, he didn't range far and wide, but his stuff accommodated rudimentary reinterpretation, so everyone from Elvis Presley to the Grateful Dead stuck a little Jimmy Reed in now and then. It swung, it made sense, and it felt good. Exceptional liner notes by the late Pete Welding. --Steven Stolder

Reed in style
12/13/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Reed, man, he's GOT it. Listen to that voice! It's the kinda beat that'll grab you from across the room, pick you up, and shake you around. This Box Set is the best collection of his material available. No blues/soul/rockandroll fan or live human being should be without him."
