Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most
audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made in their Prestige
Stereo Series on Hybrid Stereo SACD.
This relaxed, rather informal August 15, 1963, session is one of Jimmy
Witherspoon’s rarest and was the only time that the great Arkansas shouter
recorded with T-Bone Walker, the Texas-born father of electric blues guitar. In
an unusual appearance as a sideman, Walker contributed his trademark
brittle-toned solos, obbligato, and “from the five” intros to a set of tunes
that included such standards as “Money’s Gettin’ Cheaper” (a ’Spoon favorite
since he borrowed it from Charles Brown in the late Forties), “How Long Blues,”
“Good Rockin’ Tonight,” “Kansas City,” and “Don’t Let Go.” Adding further Texas
seasoning was San Antonio saxophonist Clifford Scott, best known for his
distinctive solos on “Honky Tonk” and other Bill Doggett hits, who not only
played tenor (as the original credits indicate), but blew searing alto on “Grab
Me a Freight” and flute on ’Spoon’s reading of the haunting title track, a blues
ballad previously associated with both Jimmy Rushing and Walker. With Clifford
Scott, Bert Kendrix, T-Bone Walker, Clarence Jones and Wayne Robertson.
