Champion Jack Dupree began his musical journey as a barrelhouse New Orleans piano player, and elements of that driving style stayed with him throughout his 50-year recording career (he first cut a record in 1940 and was still active as a performer when he died in 1992), but along the way he also developed into a complete entertainer, exceedingly casual and comfortable around audiences, capable of delivering thundering gutbucket blues pieces, but also able to turn things smooth and elegant, and shades of all of that are already on display in this anthology of his early recordings. Presented in chronological order, these early sides make a fine introduction (both literally and historically) to this fun, wry, and engaging musician. ~ Steve Leggett
