Format: Audio CD
Here's the technical stuff:
This is a reissue of 'Chicago's Jimmy Rogers Sings the Blues', a 1990 CD release from DCC, under license from Shelter Records, which in turn was a CD issue of 'Gold Tailed Bird' (first issued on LP in 1973 and already out of print by 1974), with 6 bonus tracks. The recordings were made in January & February of 1972 (with JJ Cale producing some of the tracks) and December 1973.
Here's the important stuff:
The band has a BALL playing some of Jimmy Rogers' classic blues tunes ('You're Sweet', 'Sloppy Drunk', etc) - and it's a killer line-up: Freddie King and Louis Myers on guitars (how often do you get to hear Freddie backing others: it's worth having this disc for this fact alone!), Dave Myers on bass, Fred Below on drums, Bob Reed on piano, and of course Jimmy Rogers on vocals (who is also listed as supplying harmonica, but it could also be Louis Myers)
No dazzling technical solos or fancy arrangements here: just good grooves, classic songs, great playing (solos and accompaniments) and good fun all 'round.
Buy it before THIS becomes out of print!

If you like to listen to the blues, if you like Chicago blues, buy this CD now. This is classic foot-tappin', head-noddin', body-rockin' blues that you can put on random play and listen to all day long... As a bonus to go along with these 18 great recordings from 1972 and 1973 is 20+ pages of liner notes that include over 9 pages of background and history of Jiimy Rogers, his crew and his songs. A must buy for anyone who loves the blues.

The first 6 tracks on this album, recorded with the Aces, is some of the finest post-1960’s Blues laid down on tape. These remain some of my all-time favorites; Rogers and the band are so in sync with one another you can sense the enjoyment and interplay shared by all. It also includes the first and definitive take of his original composition “Gold Tailed Bird”.

The next 8 tracks were recorded in California with Rogers’ working band at the time with the addition of legendary guitarist Freddie King taking some lead solos on adaptations from Rogers back catalog including songs such as “That’s All Right” and his signature adaptation of Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Sloppy Drunk”. With King on board, there is a certain tone and mood that is distinctly different than Rogers other recordings; one that makes these songs less Rogers and more as a vehicle for King to play over. That’s not to say it’s unsuccessful, but the difference on these tracks is notable. Bill Lupkin’s complimentary harp playing here adds an important layer of instrumentation that is so important to Jimmy Rogers signature Chicago Blues sound.

The last 4 tracks capture a nice snapshot of Roger’s working band from 1973. These songs have the stamp of a classic Jimmy Roger’s Blues Band sound with Jimmy’s warm vocals upfront with some of his understated intro leads with great instrumentation from the band.

Capitol uniquely repackaged a lot of their blues recordings from labels they owned in the mid-1990s. The white-ish cardboard pressboard outer cover opens like a book revealing a pristine white 23 page booklet that is non removable from the package.
