CD Reviews

A blues violinist of unparalleled mastery
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was captivated by Papa John's violin mastery when first hearing this album in 1971. On special occasions I still play the original vinyl 33 rpm disc. Imagine my delight that a CD is available and that I can save my original without fear of scratches. The playing is as adroit and the sound as imaginative as ever. Some of Papa John's friends who collaborated on the album went on to become very famous: Grace Slick and Jerry Garcia to name two. It occurs to me that the sheer joy and exhilaration of Papa John's playing is infectious and is why the Blues are as popular as ever."
A Long Search Ended
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had this album almost 30 years ago on vinyl. I have kept it even though I haven't had a turn table for years. I have scoured "record" stores for this album on CD and even tried to have it ordered for me several years ago. Papa John's violin playing is unbelievable. String Jet Rock does just that ... rocks! Papa John's Danny Boy will bring tears to your eyes. This is the premier rock violin album of all time. I can't wait to listen to this truly great album again. (Mrs.) James Sain"
Violin like you've never heard it

"Blues, Jazz, Ragtime, Bluegrass. Papa John is the master of all.Over the Rainbow is one of my favorite cuts of all. Danny Boy comes in at a close second.Papa John has the violin down to its last fret. You will nowhere hear the violin played with such expression and mastery even with Prokofiev, Bartok or even Tchaikovsky.There are no words to describe the elegance and virtuosity of this CD."
