I have to confess I am a late comer to the work of Big Joe Louis and his band the Blues Kings. I am now a convert and like all new converts I want to share the good news with others. This album is now a firm favourite in my Blues collection and I would not part with it , in fact when I play it I get those proverbial hairs tingling on the back of the neck.
If you like Blues played Chicago style then this album is for you. In fact I was amazed to discover it was recorded in The 'Toe Rag Studio' circa London in 1995!
The line up features Jamaican born Big Joe Louis on vocals, guitar and mandolin. Little George Sueref on brilliant vocals, harmonica, guitar and double bass, Matt Radford again on double bass and Brian Nevill on Drums. Also guest musicians Carl Sonny Leyland on Piano and John Primer and David Purdey guitars.
The bulk of the tracks are also originals written either by Joe Louis or George Sueref. This album is well worth a punt and I recommend it highly.
Indeed, as their first record producer the legendary Mike Vernon said
"Working with Big Joe Louis And His Blues Kings was a real experience and one I would not have missed for the world. Take it from me - this is as tough as it gets this side of the pond!"

Yes indeed! a Wow Factor.

Big Joe sings with such conviction it's brilliant.
The rythm section is solid, add the Harp playing of little George S and you have a great, simple blues band. They don't overcrowd their songs, it's very refreshing.

This is by far one of my favorite blues recordings-Please Don't let the CD cover fool you! They are the real thing. Many Blues acts today turn my stomach, playing the same old cover tunes. Personally, I'd rather listen to the originals! And let me tell you, this outfit are originals! They are just as good live as they are on record. Close your eyes, sit back, and enjoy Big Joe's vocals. If you prefer authenticity, This original blues act will not disappoint.

I first heard of big joe louis when i bought the big town playboys cd, western world.
Joe had replaced mile sanchez. Mikes band have a very similar 50s blues sound. Also carl sonny leyland who guests on big sixteen had his own band in the early 80s. The Krewmen, klassic tracks from 1985 can be found on lost moment records.

Could just be me but this is a crazy weird book and not suitable for kids. Bears no resemblance to the Paul Bunyan story I grew up hearing.

This was a gift for my wife. As a a little girl her mother used to read this book to her at bedtime and it just brought back so many wonderful memories. The book is in great condition. She's so excited to be able to continue the tradition with our children.
