We have been after the album "When You Was Doing What You Was Doing" for a long time as it had Paul Kossoff on the disc and was very hard to find and they release this 2CD set with the album as one of the CDs. Brilliant and shows Koss when he was building his reputation. Cannot thank you enough

Three years after buying this double cd, I'm still discovering great, very often witty, gems.
It feels like every time I listen, I hear something new!
For me, this is the real deal in proper, original blues. If you've got to this page by association, buy this! You will not be disappointed!

Two Impossibly Rare Albums Reissued & Remastered + Rare 'Free' & 'Rolling Stones' Contributions Thrown In For Good Measure! 30 Nov. 2007
By Mark Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This fabulous double set finally makes available for the first time on CD both of Champion Jack Dupree's notoriously rare albums on the cult UK blues label Blue Horizon. And a typically superlative release it is too in this excellent on-going series.

Here's how the discs are laid out:

Disc 1:
Tracks 1 to 10 are the album "When You Feel The Feeling You Was Feeling", 1968 on Blue Horizon 7-63206
Tracks 11 and 12 are the 'non-album' A & B-sides of his 1st UK 7" single, 1968 on Blue Horizon 57-3140
Tracks 13 to 18 are previously unreleased studio out-takes from the April 1968 "When You Feel The Feeling..." album sessions

Disc 2:
Tracks 1 to 12 are the album "Scoobydoobydoo", 1969 on Blue Horizon 7-63214
Tracks 13 and 14 are the 'non-album' A & B sides of his 2nd UK 7" single, 1969 on Blue Horizon 57-3512
Tracks 15 to 20 are previously unreleased 'live' tracks from a June 1969 gig in the UK

The original analogue tapes were transferred and remastered by Duncan Cowell and Mike Vernon and the sound quality is just gorgeous - lively, warm and clear. The booklet features both albums' artwork, full session discography, knowledgeable liner notes and even has a classy card wrap on the outside.

Champion Jack Dupree's style was boogie-woogie, his rolling piano licks accompanied by witty lyrics - often spoken before being sung (he wrote all tracks on Disc 1). You can just tell by looking at a photograph of his mischievous face - and the huge chomper of a cigar hanging out of the side of his mouth - that this man and his music are going to be infectious and endearing - and they are. Even when the recordings are just Dupree and his piano, the sound he makes is huge - and so entertaining - almost as if there's more going on than there is. And as if this wasn't good enough, both albums are bolstered up with heavy-hitter musicians from the British Rock, Blues and Jazz scene of the late Sixties. Four of the "When You Feel The Feeling..." tracks feature Paul Kossoff on Guitar and Simon Kirke on Drums of FREE. The songs are "Income Tax", "Roll On", "A Racehorse Called Mae" and "My Home's In Hell". STAN WEBB of CHICKEN SHACK contributes guitar on "I've Been Mistreated". Webb is also featured on the A-side of Dupree's 1st BH 7" single and Kossoff/Kirke on the B - the single being sought after for years for these reasons. The really cool news for FREE fans is the last two songs on Disc 1 which are previously unreleased - both contain Kossoff & Kirke in unheard songs. The takes are a bit rough and ready, but still fascinating to hear - even then with that `Free' feel they brought to everything. One of those last two tracks, "Black Cat Shuffle", also features fellow label mate DUSTER BENNETT on Guitar and a Deram label favourite, JOHNNY ALMOND on Sax - this is on top of the FREE types - bit of a Supergroup going there!

Moving on to Disc 2, the "Scoobydoobydoo" album featured Mick Taylor of THE ROLLING STONES on guitar on every track (including the A&B of the 2nd BH 7" single) - and the album also features turns from drummers KEEF HARTLEY and AYNSLEY DUNBAR. The last six live tracks were recorded on 1 June 1969 in The Angel Hotel in Goldaming in Surrey, England. My heart always sinks when I see live tracks, but these are great and the quality of the recordings is excellent - capturing the crowd singing along to his cover of Sticks McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee".

A great release then - I urge to take a chance on it - and top marks to all the good people involved. Long may Champion reign! And my God - when you think of the debt Rock owes to Black music and Black musicians!!

My New Favorite 25 May 2008
By S. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love humor and naughtyness in the blues. I have always liked Champion Jack Dupree's "drinkin' drinkin' again" songs. He always seems to have a good story to tell middle of many of his songs - told while playing of course. He was a great artist and a fantastic piano player. If you have never heard Jack Dupree I recomend this as a good place to start your collection. I have played it for all my friends down at the bar, everyone I play it for wants to buy it. Lots of laughs and good music too... Hard to beat that. I really don't think there is a bad track on the album.

Eagerly anticipated, very disappointed 31 Dec. 2010
By R. B. Wise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Recorded in 1968 and 1969, these cuts are what British Blues Fans' thought Champion Jack should sound like. The producer was deeply involved with the Bluesbreakers and brought in Mick Taylor and two of John Mayall's old drummers for one of the the sessions.

I love Champion Jack, but about all you can hear from my man is his voice. The cuts are way over-produced. He's swamped by the sidemen. Usually you have to strain to hear the piano, and even that is pretty weak, knowing what the man could do. They actually brought in a string section on several cuts. Strings, if you can believe it! The live cuts they tacked onto the end are sad examples of him playing to a room full of drunk college boys.

Friends, look elsewhere for the good stuff.
Very Good Compilation Of Champion Jack Dupree With British Session Players In 1968-69 24 April 2014
By Mark Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those not familiar with Champion Jack Dupree he was a leading blues piano player in the 1940s and 1950s. His popularity declined in the 1960s and he does not have the name recognition today that his talents deserved. Life's not fair sometimes.

This is a very good collection of recordings Champion Jack Dupree made for the then new British blues label, Blue Horizon in 1968 and 1969.

If you like blues piano, this is a recording you should have. Champion Jack Dupree was one of the great blues piano players and these recording showcase Dupree's talents.

The British session musicians on these recordings include Paul Kossoff (later lead guitarist with Free), Simon Kirke (later drummer with Free and Bad Company), Mick Taylor (then lead guitar with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, later lead guitarist with the Rolling Stones), Aynsley Dunbar and Keef Hartley (probably best known for their stints in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers), John Almond. The line notes also mention "John Baldwin, later of Led Zeppelin.." as one of the session players. That must mean John Bonham, not John Baldwin, but Bonham's name does not appear in the final recording credits.

There are a few aspects of these recordings I don't like. One is the inclusion of strings on a few tracks; IMHO strings just don't work with Dupree's material. But overall, this is a very good compilation which showcases Champion Jack Dupree's considerable talents.

The second CD includes some live tracks recorded at The Angel Hotel in Godalming, Surrey, UK on 1 June 1969. I noticed one reviewer on trashed these live recordings as being diminished by "an audience of drunken university frat boys" or some such wording. I disagree with that assessment. These live recordings are quite well done and showcase Dupree's performance before a typical audience he would have played for at the time.

Overall, a very good compilation that highlights Champion Jack Dupree's talents.
What a Wonderful Set of CDs..... 25 Aug. 2012
By JBB1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD offers everything when it came to the ex boxer and New Orleans native, Champion Jack Dupree. There were tracks where it was just him, his ivories, and his rich melodic voice. There were tracks where he was backed up by a band with such guitarists as Mick Taylor and Chicken Shack's Stan Webb. There was boogie woogie and heart felt blues and blues rock. There were clever lyrics and great piano playing. There were live tracks and studio tracks.

But, the common denominator on this CD was the very personable and often humorous Champion Jack.

My favorite tracks were those done live somewhere in the UK. It sounded like the audience was having so much fun being entertained by the great blues pianist that they were going to tear the place to the ground. They truly were enjoying themselves and so was Champion Jack with his humorous and clever lyrics and jokes.

I highly recommended this CD for those who like earlier boogie woogie blues and blues pianists. Champion Jack was one of New Orleans finest.
