2012 CD release.

In the early 1950's the young James Booker got quickly into the New Orleans R&B studio scene. His first association was with Dave Bartholomew. James also played the piano parts on some Fats Domino sessions when Fats was on the road. In 1960 he moved to Houston to work with Duke/Peacock. Session work with Bobby Bland, Junior Parker and others followed.

By 1977 Booker got to Europe and suddenly he was famous. The dues-paying years were over. For an artist of his stature it's surprising and tragic that he had so few albums released. The material here - which shows why he was held in such high esteem - is consequently to be treasured all the more.
