Personnel: Rufus Thomas (vocals); Robert Carter (guitar); Evelyn Young (tenor saxophone); Evans Bradshaw (piano); Red Davis (drums).
Before he became the godfather of Stax soul in the 1960s, Rufus Thomas had a long, rich run in the '50s, churning out bar-room boogie, jump blues, and what would have been called rock & roll if he'd had a paler complexion. TIGER MAN neatly documents this underexposed period in the soul giant's career. Collectors should note that TIGER MAN contains an almost identical track listing to the Thomas compendium BEFORE STAX: THE COMPLETE '50s RECORDINGS, the only difference being the tune that (perhaps not coincidentally) gives the former album its title.
