Jimmy Witherspoon – Spoon's Life
"Spoon's Life" - Jimmy Witherspoon (voc); George Smith (harm); Johnny Dollar, Sammy Lawhorn (g); Nick Charles (b); Roosevelt “Snake” Shaw (dr)
A beautifully recorded session of top quality blues performed by masters of their art. On paper it may look like a slightly odd coupling of KC shouter with a Chicago blues band. The results confirm that Jimmy Witherspoon is a blues singer full of passion and throughout this session all the musicians compliment each other admirably. A beautiful slab of music.
