Jimmy Reed Rocks CD

This is the first collection to gather Jimmy Reed's rockin', up-tempo recordings on to one CD album!
This collection includes all his big hits like Big Boss Man, Bright Lights Big City, I Ain't Got You, Shame Shame Shame and many others.
Jimmy Reed was an important part of the rock 'n' roll era, his music rocks in the original sense.
Everybody covered Jimmy Reed songs: Link Wray, Bill Cosby, Charlie Rich, Betty LaVette, Dale Hawkins, Ronnie Hawkins, Etta James, The Texas Tornadoes – the list would go on and on.
Even Elvis Presley, while jamming with his old buddies Scotty Moore and DJ Fontana during the televised 1968 Comeback Special, couldn't stop encoring Baby What You Want Me to Do.
Throughout the ‘60s British R&B boom, Jimmy Reed – alongside Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, was in everybody's repertoire.
His influence carries on today with many present day rockabilly and garage bands still mining the Reed catalog.
Jimmy Reed was the first blues artist of the 1950s to crossover into the mainstream charts, and only B.B. King totaled more hits than Jimmy did.
He was featured in significant Rock 'n' roll package tours criss-crossing the land, and audiences black and white loved him.
His music was deceptively simple and invited many aspiring kids to try their hands on the laid-back shuffles and blueish boogies.
His lyrics were witty, wise, humorous, and always structured around an irresistible hook-line.
Jimmy Reed made you sing-a-long and dance all night!
The Jimmy Reed sound and success would not have been possible without fellow Mississippian Eddie Taylor, responsible for the memorable guitar lines and riffs.
Also included a few of Eddie's own Vee-Jay Records recordings for Vee-Jay as a bonus.
