Biography

Pinetop Perkins is one of the last great Mississippi bluesmen still performing. He began playing blues around 1927, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest blues pianists of all time. He created a style that has influenced three generations of piano players, and will continue to be the yardstick by which great blues pianists are measured.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Granted his own session at long last, the former Muddy Waters and Legendary Blues Band pianist rehashes staples from the repertoires of Waters, Memphis Slim, and Robert Nighthawk with ebullient naturalness that is paramount to his charm. He never feels his keyboard boogie dances or functional singing as cliches, even when New Yorkers Little Mike and the Tornadoes systematically grind out the platitudes. Consumer advice: Avoid Little Mike's Heart Attack (Blind Pig CD) at all costs. -- © Frank John Hadley 1993 -- From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Does not deserve a 2* rating! August 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Excellent piano blues by a performer in his mid-70s - pay attention to the better reviews; this album is a 'bulleted' 5* recommendation in the All Music Guide to the Blues (meaning the one to start with in exploring this musician) and also a top recommendation in the Rough Guide to the Blues; I'd probably go more for 4* or 4 1/2*, but wanted to 'bump' the rating up to draw attention to this excellent effort!

4.0 out of 5 stars The best selection July 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since he had so little recorded, this is undoubtably the best choice for a good sampling of his repertoire. I would have like to have heard him when he was younger, but he still has a lot of energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC BLUES ALBUM September 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this album I was amazed at just how much energy this "old" blues player generated. I believe Pinetop was well into his 70's when he recorded this amazing debut album following a long stint with Muddy Waters. Songs like GOT MY MOJO WORKIN and the title song AFTER HOURS are performed with great enthusiasm and power by Perkins and the band. Pinetop also displays a light, playful side on PINETOPS BOOGIE. There is not a weak song in the set. This is truly a "must have" album for blues enthusiasts, and music fans in general. Disregard the other review. Not only is the English poor, but so is the critique!

4.0 out of 5 stars modern/classic blues June 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pinetop Perkins backed by Little Mike and the Tornadoes. On some songs Pinetop sounds like a member of a modern blues band, playing piano and singing. Little Mike and the Tornadoes are a good blues band, but almost overshadow Pinetop on some songs. Other songs are classic blues with just Pinetop and no band. Some songs have just Pinetop on vocals and piano and Little Mike on harmonica. Great piano and good vocals by Pinetop. The only negative is his vocals on Hoochie Coochie Man, where his vocals are adequate, but pale in comparison to Muddy Waters original. I like the fact the he has included his signature piece, Pinetop Smith's "Pinetop's Boogie Woogie".

2.0 out of 5 stars Got my Mojo Workin' June 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This kind of song has a deep feeling of blues and also has the corus behind, what give to the song some feeling of gospel song. The style and the spirit of pinetop is in the song. Maybe my english is not perfect but I do me best effort.
