Yet another South Side star shines brightly...

"Like his Muddy Waters Band contemporary, Little Walter, some of Jimmy Rogers' best work was done before he went solo. After "Luedella" broke in 1956, Rogers had already become yet another star in the galaxy that was launched by Waters' seminal band. Although the two Chess "Muddy Waters: His Best" would serve as the ideal introduction for both Rogers and Little Walter, I think this disk would be a good buy for anyone interested in Rogers guitar style or anyone that might be interested in hearing the Muddy Waters Band without Muddy Waters on lead vocals. Recommended, but not essential though the craftsmaship is, of course, superb and influential throughout."

"This is Jimmy Rogers complete output of work from Chess Records. Muscians take note in the many styles that Jimmy encompasses throughtout his work which shows through the sophistication of the songs(learning from the likes of T-bone Walker and Tampa Red).Just a very enjoyable body of work by one of the Blues greats who influenced people like Freddie King and Otis Rush. Excellant singer also!!!!!"
