Little Willie Littlefield & Champion Jack Dupree – Good Rockin’ Blues & Boogie – 2CD
Blues and R&B legends Little Willie Littlefield and champion Jack Dupree had a lot in common. Both had long recording careers stretching back to the 1940s, recording for independent record labels; both chose to live in Europe; both recorded albums in Europe; and both headlined the first-ever Burnley Blues Festival in the United Kingdom in 1989.
Blues fans were treated to a weekend of blues, R&B and boogie, with Willie leading the program on March 23 and Jack accompanied the following night by the Big Town Playboys, who perfectly recreated the rhythm and blues that Willie and Jack recorded in the late 1940s and 1950s.
The tracks collected here are from their Burnley performances, with the exception of three tracks Willie recorded with the Playboys at the Belgium Blues Festival in 1986, which were later broadcast on national BBC radio on the Paul Jones Show.
"Little Willie Littlefield was in the best form I've ever seen him in. He gave us a selection of straight blues and boogie." Tony Collins, Juke Blues magazine
"Jack Dupree and the Big Town Playboys took the room apart with '50s classics, and the audience cheered him on after every number." Tony Burke, Blues & Rhythm magazine
