Shakey Jake
Call Me When You Need Me CD

• New Release Coming Soon - Pre-order Now! •

Harmonica player/singer/semi-professional gambler James D. “Shakey Jake” Harris remains one of The Blues’ shadowy, Great Unknowns.
His name came from his awesome ability to shoot dice; by all accounts, fellow-gamblers would call “Shake ’Em Jake” at him.
This collection couples his two ultra-rare original albums Good Times and Mouth Harp Blues both recorded for Prestige/Bluesville, plus his one-off 1958 45rpm release for the Artistic label, a subsidiary label of Cobra Records.
On his Artistic 45 he was backed by the Willie Dixon Band, whose personnel included guitarists Magic Sam (Shakey Jake’s nephew) and Freddie King.
Much of this material is virtually impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
