5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD February 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another great singer from the "hoy hoy" era of music (1946-1953).

You can't go wrong if you love classic R&B. (that's nothing like the stuff today that is considered R&B). Or if you love jump blues, this CD is for you.

This is one of the quintessential jump bands of all time! There are at least, to my recollection at this time 400+ bands in the USA who are playing "I ain't Drunk", a Jimmy Liggins original. Ask Sumpter Bruton about Jimmy. He played the Continental with T-Bone and Charlie Christian & a host of others. The Skyliners(to become "the band") are Sumpter's roots. If he doesn't know nobody does!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Jump-Band at its best November 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A must-have CD in this genre. Stompin', uplifting and more varied than I expected. The only limitation is Jimmy's vocals. He's not bad by any means but he is limited and gets a bit samey after a while. He had other worthy vocalists in his band that should have been handed the mic now and again. Otherwise a great listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where Re-makes come from. May 16, 2000
By Lindi D
Format:Audio CD
I'm very happy with my Liggins purchase. I get great boogie like "Shuffle Shuck", as well as orignal songs that new artists like the Mighty Blue Kings remake, such as "I Can't Stop It." For swing dancers and DJs, of which I am both, it's a LOT of great Lindy-able jump blues!
