This is the 1958 masterwork album of Champion Jack Dupree’s long and prolific career. Cut in New York  with a blasting band that included saxist Pete Brown and guitarist Larry Dale, the Jerry Wexler-produced Atlantic collection provides eloquent testimony to Dupree’s eternal place in the New Orleans blues and barrelhouse firmament. There’s some decidedly down-in-the-alley subject matter — „Can’t Kick the Habit”, „T.B. Blues”, a revival of „Junker’s Blues” — along with the stomping „Nasty Boogie” and treatments of the ancient themes „Stack-O-Lee” and „Frankie & Johnny”.

Recording: 1958 in New York by Tom Dowd
Production: Jerry Wexler.
