Jimmy Reed – an Innovating genius.

He created the riff that lies in the heart of all R&B artists. It’s immortal. He used the same riff, with minor variations on everything he did – speeding it up, slowing it down, and it always sounded brilliant.

I was lucky enough to see him in London in the early 70s. It’s a concert that will stick in my mind. He was pissed as a newt and brilliant!!

Not only that beat but the fabulous lyrics and that amazing squeaky harmonica.


I'd like to hear from you...
