• Joe LIGGINS and His Honeydrippers - The Greatest Hits 1945-1957

Joe Liggins was one of the top rhythm and blues performers of the immediate post war years. He enjoyed 13 Billboard R&B Chart hits between 1945 and 1951 at which point it was all over for him as a chart star but as this 27 track compilation illustrates he could still turn out great sounding records and was a popular live performer as well.

Hits include: 'I've Got A Right To Cry'; 'Tanya'; 'Blow Mr Jackson' and of course the two undeniable classics of r&b music, 'The Honeydripper' and 'Pink Champagne'.

This is a must for fans of classic blues music and especially blues piano players such as Pinetop Perkins.
