SNAP 146 CD

'The 1959 Vee-Jay album (LP1008) with four bonus tracks. As the original sleeve notes noted ‘These folks are playing real blues and they don’t care who knows it.’  Steve Miller’s choice for Last Night A Record Changed My Life.' MOJO

'The simplicity of his music, so pure and honest, the band, his heartbreaking harmonica, guitar work, his lyrics - everything instantly knocked me out. But what really touched me was the overall sound; It sounds so good to this day.'

Jimmy Reed is one the world’s most highly-regarded blues artists, his impressive string of hits during the Fifties and the Sixties making him one of the most successful blues singers of the era. His music inspired numerous rock bands during the Sixties blues boom, including The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead and Eric Clapton.

Rockin’ With Reed is one in a series of enhanced re-issues of classic blues albums originally released by Vee-Jay Records. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Vee-Jay and this blues series forms part of Charly’s reissue program of highlights from the label’s extensive catalogue.

As with the earlier titles in this series, Rockin’ With Reed is packaged in attractive digipak format, featuring the original album’s striking artwork with a new introduction written by blues authority Les Fancourt. The accompanying booklet includes the album’s original sleeve notes and a full discography.

Released in 1959, Rockin' With Reed was Reed’s second album for Vee-Jay and features such classics as ‘Take Out Some Insurance’ and ‘Going To New York’.  Four bonus tracks have been added for this reissue, including two rare single versions of ' Honey, Where You Going?' and 'Signals Of Love'.
