Jimmy Reed – Ain’t That Lovin’ You Baby –┬áSingles As & Bs 1953-1961


8 years worth of Jimmy Reed singles, remastered on Jasmine? Oh hell yeah …

Jimmy Reed was the Vivaldi of the blues. He did one thing, one thing only, and he did it better than anybody.

Or was he the Mozart of the blues? A compositional prodigy who just spit out hit after hit after hit whether he was “on” or not …

He wadn’t any of that, actually. He was just a straight-up shuffle-groovin’, 3-chordin’, reed-bendin’, hit-writin’ motherfucker.
