Jimmy Witherspoon was one of the most popular and influential blues vocalists of the 20th century. Unlike many of his contemporaries he was simply a vocalist, playing no instruments. His powerful voice and affinity with jazz and jazz players helped his career enormously affording him success on Billboard’s R&B chart.
This compilation covers the years 1947-1955 and concentrates on his chart hits and popular jukebox releases.
Listen to the superb tracks and blues standards ‘Money’s Getting Cheaper’ which became a staple of Britain’s Mod Jazz scene and is still a floor filler today and ‘Ain’t Nobody’s Business’ became a phenomenal hit reaching No. 1 on the Billboard R&B chart.
