HASH(0x8e1e303c) out of 5 stars Another fine "Masters Of Modern Blues" album 6 Jan. 2004
By Docendo Discimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Delta slide guitarist Johnny Shines was a pupil and travelling companion of the slightly older Robert Johnson.
Rarely recorded in his prime, Shines quit the music business for a time, but came back during the 60s blues boom, and recorded this fine album for producer Pete Weldings "Masters Of Modern Blues" series. He is backed by the great Walter Horton on harmonica, as well as veteran bluesmen Lee Jackson (bass) and Fred Below (drums), and Muddy Waters' sublime pianist Otis Spann sits in as well.
Johnny Shines was an excellent slide guitarist and a fine singer, very much inspired by Robert Johnson in his choice of material (he covers both Johnson and Charley Patton here, and the fine "Two Trains Runnin'" clearly utilizes the pattern from Delta legend Son House's "My Black Mama pr. II", AKA "Death Letter Blues").
And there are plenty of highlights on this consistently enjoayble record, particularly the swinging, up-tempo "What Kind Of Little Girl Are You", Johnny Shines' renditions of "Sweet Home Chicago" and "My Black Mare", and the excellent original "Trouble Is All I See", which features Shines' fluid electric slide guitar, Horton's harp and Spann's magnificent piano playing (and both Lee Jackson, who provides the sole backing on the slow, moody "Mr Tom Green's Farm", and the versatile Fred Below deserves praise as well...Below was one of the best and most influential blues drummers of the 50s and 60s).
If a blues record has the late, great Otis Spann rolling the 88s, it's probably a good one, and this one is no exception. "Masters Of Modern Blues" is a really fine album all the way through, well arranged and superbly played, and one of John Ned Shines' finest.

HASH(0x8e1e3810) out of 5 stars FIVE STAR JOHNNY !!!!! 4 Mar. 2010
By lptf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm writing this because it just doesn't seem right that a cd this AWESOME should have a lone review to its credit! I'm thinking: if Robert Johnson had lived and recorded with a band, THIS IS WHAT WE'D BE HEARING!!! This is THAT GOOD!!! Pete Welding has does it again, producing and writing liner notes for an excellent complement to "Standing At The Crossroads!" These two cds plus "Johnny Shines with Big Walter Horton," all Testament Records reissues, are MUST HAVES!!! You won't be disappointed! 'Nuf said!

HASH(0x8e5c2384) out of 5 stars Very Good Johnny Shines Album From 1966, With Backing From Some Leading Chicago Bluesmen 9 July 2014
By Mark Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although this CD is part of a series being marketed as "Masters of Modern Blues," Johnny Shines was actually part of an earlier generation of bluesmen who started in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Shines was born in Memphis in 1915 and was part of the circle of blues musicians around Robert Johnson's generation in Mississippi. He actually travelled and performed with Robert Johnson in the 1930s.

But this CD shows Johnny Shines could still hold his own with the following generation of Chicago bluesmen. These recordings from 1966 feature Johnny Shines performing with some of the top players among 1950s and 60s Chicago bluesmen. Otis Spann played piano in Muddy Waters' band and also had a successful solo career; Fred Below had been the drummer in Muddy Waters' band and was a leading session drummer; Big Walter Horton was one of the leading Chicago harp players.

This is a very worthwhile Johnny Shines CD. The sound is good and the playing is top notch.

My only complaint about the CD is that it's only 34 minutes of music. IMHO labels reissuing older albums should include out takes from the original sessions, or include a second album, or otherwise fill up the remaining space on a CD. Vinyl LPs only held 40 minutes of music - about 20 minutes per side - while CDs were originally designed to hold 75 minutes of music. IMHO record labels should fill up most of the available CD time when reissuing older albums.
