SO MANY RECORDS, SO LITTLE TIME: Jack Dupree


Quote from: So Many Records, So Little Time Blog...
"This was a bizarre discovery from that very first pile of singles I blagged off WMCR, claiming to be from the Children's Hospital and needing donations. There were many greats in that stack of about 50 (The Others, The Pretty Things, Inez & Charlie Foxx, The Mickey Finn, The Hullaballoos, Ike & Tina Turner, Jimmy Reed), but this earned an immediate spot. I played it for everyone - all as baffled as myself on first listen. We were feeling confidently hip to this blues music The Rolling Stones and The Kinks claimed as their influences, even though we simply were not. A true and pure slice had yet to be served up until that very first spin of 'Tongue Tied Blues'. Just listen and you'll understand."
