Product Description

Jimmy McCracklin has long been one of the most prolific Ramp;B songwriters -- his credits include such classics as "Georgia Slop," "The Walk," and "Tramp." He's also an outstandingly soulful vocalist and a pianist to contend with. (He turns in a fine version of Avery Parish's "After Hours" here). All the other songs are McCracklin originals, including two superb duets with Irma Thomas. Most of the album was recorded in New Orleans, and four tracks were recorded in McCracklin's hometown of Oakland, California. On "After Hours" (from the Oakland sessions) James Brown saxman Pee Wee Ellis leads a stellar horn section.

Review

McCracklin's recording career has encompassed nearly a half century, taking in the 1958 pop smash "The Walk" and a great deal of other fine work (whether well remembered or lamentably obscure). Without sacrificing any of his enduring charm his early-1990s Bullseye Blues debut has a resolutely contemporary blues quality that places the Bay Area singer/ pianist/songwriter (he wrote B. B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone," for one) in the limelight again. Refashioned jump blues alternate with funky Ramp;B items and two songs cofeature New Orleans soul chanteuse Irma Thomas-every last one a good-natured exposition.
