Product Description:

Liner Note Authors: Sid McCoy; Bob Fisher.
Recording information: Chicago, IL (01/18/1955-??/??/1965).
I'M JIMMY REED, which appeared at the tail end of the 1950s, was the blues icon's first full-length album, but he had already been releasing titanic singles at a pretty steady clip for a number of years before that. So while this isn't exactly a greatest-hits album (especially since some of Reed's finest moments were still to come at the time), it still winds up functioning as something of an anthology of his '50s recordings, including the milestone "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby," the R&B ballad "Honest I Do" (sporting a 6/8 meter that was unusual for the shuffle king), and much more. For a more comprehensive summary of Reed's big singles, you'd need an actual best-of package, but I'M JIMMY REED still makes an excellent entry point into the man's work.
