Product Description

ROGERS JIMMY THE BLUES BLUES BLUES

Amazon.com

Back in 1969, Muddy Waters and Otis Spann teamed with young guns Paul Butterfield and Michael Bloomfield to create Fathers & Sons. The idea was to match the sagacity of the "old timers" with the flash and commercial muscle of the upstarts. Nearly three decades later, Jimmy Rogers (like Spann, an alumnus of Waters's commanding '50s group) holed up in the studio with Butterfield-Bloomfield contemporaries Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Stephen Stills; the result is Blues Blues Blues, the late singer-guitarist's swan song. Here's something to ponder: Waters was 54 when Fathers & Sons was recorded, the same age as Jagger when he cut his two tracks for this set. So maybe this collection should've been called Great-Grandfathers & Grandfathers. That said, Jagger's two contributions to Blues Blues Blues highlight this effort; he sounds invigorated dueting with the steady-rollin' Rogers on "Trouble No More" and gooses up Sonny Boy Williamson's "Don't Start Me to Talkin'" with studied nonchalance. With other rock-era titans (Taj Mahal, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page) and blues stalwarts (Carey Bell, Johnnie Johnson, Hound Dog Taylor & the Houserockers drummer Ted Harvey) along to lend support, Blues Blues Blues is a star-studded sendoff to one of the blues' noble patriarchs. --Steven Stolder

A perfect illustration of the influence of the Blues on Rock and Roll.

A great CD with guests Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Jeff Healy and the great Jimmy Rogers himself.

They compliment, enhance, blend, and meld with Rogers' voice and playing like nobody's business.

Format: Audio CD
Jimmy Rogers was second guitarist in Muddy Waters' classic lineup, which also included harpist Little Walter and bassists Big Crawford or Willie Dixon. As a solo artist, Rogers used these musicians (minus Waters) to record his classic sides for Chess in the Fifties. If you don't already own the two-disc The Complete Chess Recordings, that would be the logical place to start.
But as a tribute to one of Chicago's greatest bluesmen (Rogers died in 1997 before this album's release), Blues Blues Blues is a great collection of songs. The idea of coupling an aging blues musician with superstar guests is nothing new. Chess Did it with its London Sessions series in the early Seventies, and John Lee Hooker has made a career out of it since releasing The Healer back in 1989. While this type of recording tends to be something of a mixed bag, Blues Blues Blues is an overall success.
Rogers is still in fine voice even into his seventies. And guest artists are top-notch. Guest vocalists (who share lead vocals with Rogers on all tracks) include Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger and Taj Mahal. Lead guitar is provided by Clapton, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page and Jeff Healey. Either Kim Wilson or Carey Bell plays harmonica on most tracks.
Whether the band is performing Rogers' originals like "That's All Right" and "Luedella," or classic blues songs like Waters' "Trouble No More" or Jimmy Reed's "Bright Lights Big City," they play with authority and conviction.
While the album was recorded as a celebration of Rogers' contribution to the blues, it serves as a fitting tribute. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I've always been a bit sceptical about these superstar collaborations...they don't always work too well, and sometimes the guest stars overshadow the supposed main artist. But Jimmy Rogers and his various all-star combos manage to pull it off really well.

Sure, the arrangements are generally very similar all the way through, which does perhaps detract a little bit from an otherwise fine performance, but this is actually a very accessible and fun blues record. It doesn't just appeal to hard-core blues fans, more mainstream rock- and R&B lovers can certainly enjoy it as well, and Rogers and his guest musicians have hand-picked some real blues classics, and they generally do very well by them.

The album opens with a faithful take on Muddy Waters' "Blow Wind Blow", with excellent harmonica by the Fabulous Thunderbirds' Kim Wilson, and lead guitar by white blues-rock guitarist Jeff Healy.
Jimmy Rogers' own "Blues All Day Long" has Rogers sharing lead vocals with a certain Mr Eric Clapton, who also plays lead guitar. Carey Bell lends a hand on the harp.
On a gritty reading of the classic "Trouble No More", Rogers shares the lead vocals with Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards plays lead guitar.
"Bright Lights, Big City" is another Jimmy Rogers-original, with Taj Mahal behind the microphone (he is also featured on Rogers' "Ludella"), and Lowell Fulson appears along with harpist Carey Bell on Memphis Slim's "Everyday I Have The Blues".

The all-stars also do the inevitable take on Robert Johnson's "Sweet Home Chicago", with Stephen Stills (!) contributing lead guitar and co-lead vocals, and Stills pops up again on Big Maceo Merriweather's "Worried Life Blues".

I tend to stay away from collaborations and stick to the original blues recordings, but I read a few good reviews of this disc and when I saw the line-up of the artists on it, I thought I'd give it a try. Let me tell you, it doesn't disappoint at all. This CD has a good drive, a strong rhythm, excellent production values and will definitely pick you up. This CD has blues classics laid on a British rock foundation. It doesn't get too much into the rock territory, though. I thought a really nice balance was achieved between blues and rock, such that the strong drive is always there, but at the same time, this is unmistakably blues, with excellent piano and harp to add to solid guitar work. Even though there are a few prominent rock guitarrists assembled in this CD, there is no guitar shoot-out here. The guitars provide a solid, pleasant, easy-to-listen backing but never take over the songs as is often the case in pure blues. This is a great CD for driving - you will never get any highway hypnosis if you have this CD on. If you've stayed away from blues but like classic/British rock, give this a try. If you are blues purist and are suspicious of this all-star line-up, give this a try. If you are looking to ease smoothly into the blues scene, give this a try. If you like country rock, give this a try. I think you can't go wrong with this disc. This a good value for the money.

Anyone put off by the "all-star" supporting cast on this tribute to the late Chicago blues legend Jimmy Rogers, which is an understandable thing based on other such offerings out there, is missing the point. The point is this is a good, solid effort throughout the disc. If you're new to the blues, this is a good, accessible intro. If you're a longtime blues aficionado, this is still strong; this is not "blues for kids". He gets help from the best: Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Taj Mahal, Robert Plant, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Jimmy D Lane, Kim Wilson on harmonica, Johnny Johnson on piano, even Stephen Stills. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the last track, John Lee Hooker's "Gonna Shoot You Right Down (Boom Boom)" is good stuff. Rogers himself sings the vocals and plays guitar on the tracks and sounds great. He passed before the album was released, but musically, he went out strong with this one. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the blues.
