BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 5/19/24
JIMMY ROGERS – BACK TO THE SOURCE
 

This week on BBS we rework a playlist from 1998. I recall this program specifically because it featured Chicago’s Jimmy Rogers. Jimmy was one the seminal figures in postwar Chicago Blues – an integral part of the Muddy Waters band and eventually a front man in his own right with many classic recordings. One interesting aspect on many of his greatest hits is that they were reworkings of other Blues singer’s records – and often the original recordings were over a decade old and totally obscure – yet when Jimmy Rogers redid them, they became classics. This week we’ll spend Hours 4 & 5 listening to a boatload of Jimmy Roger’s classics paired along side of the original version of the tune by the original artist – Jimmy Rogers and Tony Hollins, Jimmy Rogers and Bumble Bee Slim, Jimmy Rogers and Yank Rachel – you get the idea? Tune in Jimmy Rogers – The Classic Recordings & The Original Source

– Only on BBS!

(Thanx goes out to Illinois Slim and Dick Shurman for their suggestions on this one)
