Synopsis

Amazon.com
Junior Parker learned his harp at the knee of Sonny Boy Williamson, but his singing deserves at least as much attention. Despite its smooth delivery, Parker's voice never lacked power, and I'm So Satisfied is proof of that. Though all of this material was previously issued, this is the first time it's been collected on CD; I'm So Satisfied is 31 tracks of Parker's best work, including "Just Like a Fish" and "Sometimes I Wonder." "Baby, Please" is as soulful a ballad as one could wish, and "Come Back Baby" has a sassy, sensual appeal. Parker's backing musicians are strong without ever overwhelming his lead, allowing him to take a relaxed attitude toward even the more up-tempo songs, such as "You Ain't Got No Heart" and "Wish Me Well." So little of Parker's recorded work is available that this album is a real treasure. Though various greatest-hits collections exist, I'm So Satisfied is one of the most comprehensive. --Genevieve Williams
 

CD Reviews

Great renditions of true memphis blues.
08/24/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Junior Parker sang in the back of my father's furniture store in West memphis Arkansas when I was growing up. He knows the world he sings about. He thrilled us then and this recording captures it all. This is a great value album"
