Editorial Reviews

Shorty is one of those artists who has never received his due. The fact that he influenced both the great Buddy Guy and Jimi Hendrix is almost beside the point. He is an uncommonly good blues guitarist in his own right and a powerful vocalist to boot. Roll Over, Baby is full of memorable sides like the slightly risqué title cut, a nostalgic lover's plea. Shorty also does a fine "Hey Joe" a la Hendrix, yet firmly imprints it with his own stamp. And when Shorty says "Don't Mess with My Woman," you'd better listen. His biting guitar is reminiscent of the late Albert King with a little Clapton thrown in. Pick up this disc and you too will wonder why this master has been overlooked. --Lars Gandil

Review

Roll Over, Baby was recorded in New Orleans, and it shows. "The Porkchop Song" ... is a propulsive second-line parade flagwaver. ... "Let's Get Close," on the other hand, is a bone-crunching anthem.... -- Living Blues

Format: Audio CD
I got turned on to Guitar Shorty mainly because I found out he plays G&L guitars - Leo Fender's last company before his death. I wanted to hear what a Legacy Special would sound like in the hands of a blues master, so I listened to the above clips. I was blown away by what little I could hear so I knew I had to have this cd immediately. As a matter of fact I have a list of 29 "must have" cd's & this is the one I bought first. I wasn't disappointed! It's a crime that this guy isn't more commercially successful - maybe if more radio stations would play real music (a.k.a. the blooze) every once in a while. Oh well, I guess you'll have to settle for NPR once a week at midnight or BUY THIS CD!!!!

I am lucky enough to have an autographed copy of this CD as I saw Shorty in Chicago. He blew me away. His playing is just tasty. It's not over the top all the time. If you're a guitar player, Shorty takes you to school on how to shape and form a solo. His version of "Hey Joe" is a classic, while songs like "Pork Chop" are just fun. The CD features a nice mix of fast and slow tempo which stops it from blending all together. A great guy, a GREAT player, a definite above average CD.

I've heard Guitar Shorty playing live at a juke joint in Tallahasse, FL, and he was dynamite! He started with a bang, and built his act higher and higher, until he had the audience rocked out of the room with his talent! To my way of thinking, this is his best album! The title tune, "Roll Over Baby", along with the"Pork Chop" song, give such an upbeat slant to the comical and joyful side of blues, they have to get you smiling, as you rock and sway along with him! His "Hey Joe" is the BEST rendition of that tune I ever heard, and when he plays it live, it chills you to the bone with his tragic, heart-felt realism. Blues just doesn't get any better than this! Guitar Shorty is the BOSS we all want to follow, big time!
