• The Very Best of Peppermint HARRIS - I Got Loaded 1948-1959

Peppermint Harris was a true original with a brilliant way with words which made him a superlative songwriter having many of his compositions recorded by top blues artists such as B. B. King and Bobby Bland.

This is a must for blues fans and across the 56 tracks there are many superb tracks as well as his two hits, 'Raining in My Heart' which reached #4 in 1950 R&B chart and more importantly the classic drinking song, 'I Got Loaded' which hit the #1 spot for two weeks in 1951.

Although this excellent 2CD set is by no means the complete it does present the most comprehensive exploration of his work between 1948 and 1959 yet released in the CD era.

Fully detailed liner notes.
