Great old time blues by a young man
JEAN-MARIE JUIF | BESANCON France | 06/06/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"At the time of this session, Pete FRanklin was in his early thirties. That was in 1961, but Pete didn't play like the blues players of his age, Magic Sam, Freddie King, Otis Rush or Jimmy Rogers. His music goes back to the thirties, and pays tributes to Leroy Carr,Scrapper Blackwell, Tampa Red or Walter Davis. Franklin has a beautiful,smoky voice, and plays piano and guitar with great skill and taste. There is some melancholy in this album, great playing, and talented versions of old standards like "black gal", "six white horses", Curtis Jones' "lonesome bedroom blues" and Tampa's "grievin' me". If you're a lover of pre-war blues, and if you like blues from Naptown, you'll sure enjoy this record."
