Description

All in all, this set conveys the image of the upright piano in the back of a saloon or whorehouse parlour., places that spawned the blues in its earliest and most intense incarnations., here played by a man whose life and very being was this music. Roosevelt Sykes, bluesmaster extraordinaire, is well served by this CD of musical gems served up in mid-career.
