CD Reviews

Another Excellent Release By Roosevelt Sykes
Daniel B. Pepper | New York | 03/02/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Roosevelt Sykes was the best of the Blues pianists. His work was more consistent than that of Memphis Slim, and his lyrics were more creative than those of Otis Spann. has gotten the track listing for this album all wrong. Below is the correct track listing for this album which was recorded in the studio, and not live!

1. Big Ben 2:58
2. Boot That Thing 3:33
3. Springfield Blues 2:57
4. Henry Ford Blues 2:58
5. I'm A Dangerous Man 2:04
6. True Thing 4:00
7. You Understand 2:24
8. Whole Lot Of Children 3:26
9. The Last Laugh 4:35
10. Gold Mine 2:23
11. 44 Blues 3:00
12. Sugar Cup 2:29

"The Last Laugh", "Springfield Blues", "Big Ben" and "44 Blues" are particularly good. This is a highly recommended release that is available at a very cheap price. Pick it up!"
