Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made in their Prestige Stereo Series on Hybrid Stereo SACD.
This relaxed, rather informal August 15, 1963, session is one of Jimmy Witherspoons rarest and was the only time that the great Arkansas shouter recorded with T-Bone Walker, the Texas-born father of electric blues guitar. In an unusual appearance as a sideman, Walker contributed his trademark brittle-toned solos, obbligato, and from the five intros to a set of tunes that included such standards as Moneys Gettin Cheaper (a Spoon favorite since he borrowed it from Charles Brown in the late Forties), How Long Blues, Good Rockin Tonight, Kansas City, and Dont Let Go. Adding further Texas seasoning was San Antonio saxophonist Clifford Scott, best known for his distinctive solos on Honky Tonk and other Bill Doggett hits, who not only played tenor (as the original credits indicate), but blew searing alto on Grab Me a Freight and flute on Spoons reading of the haunting title track, a blues ballad previously associated with both Jimmy Rushing and Walker. With Clifford Scott, Bert Kendrix, T-Bone Walker, Clarence Jones and Wayne Robertson.
