Jimmy Reed was an American blues musician and songwriter, notable for bringing his distinctive style of blues to mainstream audiences. Reed was a major player in the field of electric blues, as opposed to the more acoustic-based sound of many of his contemporaries. His lazy, slack-jawed singing, piercing harmonica and hypnotic guitar patterns were one of the blues' most easily identifiable sounds in the 1950s and 1960s, and had a significant impact on many rock and roll artists who followed, such as Elvis Presley, Billy Gibbons, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones.

Everyone needs a little Mathis James Reed in their lives, and this reissue of the 1958 Vee-Jay disc is a great place to rectify any omission. Not just a guitar genius but a true giant of rock ‘n’ roll vocalease, Reed’s repertoire informed the white boy R&B and pop school as surely as did Chuck Berry’s.

‘I’m Jimmy Reed’, released in 1958 by Vee Jay, was his first album for the label and features such Reed classics as ‘Honest I Do’, ‘Ain’t That Lovin’ You Baby’ and ‘You Don’t Have To Go’, recorded in company with the likes of Eddie Taylor and Earl Phillips.

Four bonus tracks, including ‘High And Lonesome’ and ‘She Don’t Want Me No More’.

"[A] treasure-trove of prime material from his repertory, including the songs on which he'd built his reputation over the previous five years, key among them 'Honest I Do,' 'Ain't That Lovin' You Baby,' 'You Got Me Dizzy,' and 'You Don't Have to Go,' plus their highly relevant B-sides, which help give this album more depth and breadth than a formal hits collection would have had. And in addition to Reed's singing and harp work, the album is also a superb showcase for guitarists Eddie Taylor and John Brim (the latter on the earliest material here)..." - Bruce Eder,
