Review by Bill Dahl

Here's a three-disc, 66-song package that's heavy on boogies and blues and slightly deficient in the ballad department. Everything that is aboard is top-drawer, though -- the booze odes, many a party rocker, and a plethora of the double-entendre blues that Milburn reveled in during his early years.

Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Over the course of the '90s, Mike Morgan & the Crawl built a solid following by releasing albums every bit as solid as I Like the Way You Work It. There are really no surprises on this, their sixth album, but that doesn't mean that it's a disappointment, either. True, there aren't any songs that are instant knockouts, but there aren't any outright losers, and the Crawl's performance is muscular and committed throughout the record. Morgan's stinging solos are still a treat and Lee McBee's vocal and harmonica work are only getting better with age. If these two were working with a set of truly stellar material, the results could have been remarkable. As it stands, I Like the Way You Work It simply has good generic songs. And while that may not be enough for it to transcend its generic roots, it's enough to make it a good listen.

Editorial Reviews

By the 1970s gospel music was at a crossroads. Rhythm and blues had moved into soul, and the old-timey feel of much of gospel was alienating younger audiences. It fought back by adapting the sounds of contemporary funk and soul to their songs of devotion, and in recent years these records have become some of the hottest items amongst collectors. However until now the Stax Organisation and its Gospel Truth label had been largely ignored.

Started by label boss Al Bell and run by veteran black music radio promotions man Dave Clark, it aimed to capitalise on the success Bell had had with the Staples Singers, the gospel group becoming a pop sensation on the main Stax label. The idea was that the Gospel Truth label would take existing and new gospel acts and give them the Stax makeover. The very best soul musicians in the world would take time out from cutting hits to create the music for a series of gospel soul and funk masterpieces.

This compilation tells the story of Stax's move into the gospel field by choosing the best of the output. From the Staple Singers' glorious template via the inspired and unique voice of Rance Allen, the mainstay of the Gospel Truth label itself. We have cuts from the sought-after and super-rare Sons Of Truth LP, and Joshie Joe Armstead's You Got The Vibes, a UK northern soul monster almost from the day it was released.

The 20 tracks reflect the sound of popular black American music of the day - from the out and out funk of Clarence Smith, through the group soul harmonies of 21st Century to the proto-disco sound of the Howard Lemon Singers. If the connection with God sometimes seems tenuous, it was all part of the plan to bring you to Him by stealth.

HEADBAND was a fusion band from Köln active from the early 70's to early 80's. Through their career they played a quirky kind of fusion comparable to that of PASSPORT for example, or on their earlier albums someone from the German jazz scene of the time like SURGERY. Even though they were active for a long time, they released their first album as late as 1979. Through all three albums they had a mostly stable line-up whose members were related in one way or another to other artists from the krautrock scene.

Biography by Bill Dahl

By any yardstick, Chicago guitarist John Primer has paid his dues. Prior to making The Real Deal for Mike Vernon's Atlantic-distributed Code Blue label, Primer spent 13 years as the ever-reliable rhythm guitarist with Magic Slim & the Teardrops. Before that, he filled the same role behind Chicago immortals Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon.

All that grounding has paid off handsomely for Primer. His sound is rooted in the classic Windy City blues sound of decades past: rough-edged and uncompromising and satisfying in the extreme. He's one of the last real traditionalists in town.

By the time he came to Chicago in 1963, Primer was thoroughly familiar with the lowdown sounds of Waters, Wolf, Jimmy Reed, B.B. and Albert King, and Elmore James. He fronted a West Side outfit for a while called the Maintainers, dishing out a mix of soul and blues before joining the house band at the Southside blues mecca Theresa's Lounge for what ended up being a nine-year run. Elegant guitarist Sammy Lawhorn proved quite influential on Primer's maturing guitar approach during this period.

Always on the lookout for aspiring talent, Willie Dixon spirited him away for a 1979 gig in Mexico City. After a year or so as one of Dixon's All-Stars, Primer was recruited to join the last band of Muddy Waters, playing with the Chicago blues king until his 1983 death. Right after that, Primer joined forces with Magic Slim; their styles interlocked so seamlessly that their partnership seemed like an eternal bond.

But Primer deserved his own share of the spotlight. In 1993, Michael Frank's Chicago-based Earwig logo issued Primer's debut domestic disc, Stuff You Got to Watch. It was a glorious return to the classic '50s Chicago sound, powered by Primer's uncommonly concise guitar work and gruff, no-nonsense vocals. With the 1995 emergence of The Real Deal -- produced by Vernon and featuring all-star backing by harpist Billy Branch, pianist David Maxwell, and bassist Johnny B. Gayden, Primer's star appeared ready to ascend. He soon transferred back to the Wolf label for sets such as 1997's Cold Blooded Blues Man, 1998's Blues Behind Closed Doors, and 2000's It's a Blues Life.

Review by Thom Owens

Poor Man Blues: Chicago Blues Session, Vol. 6 showcases the exceptional guitar skills of John Primer, who long served as a guitarist for Muddy Waters and Magic Slim. Primer falls somewhere between the two, turning out tough Chicago blues fueled by his biting slide guitar. His original songs aren't particularly interesting, but they function as good vehicles for exciting jams. In the end, Primer might not add anything new to Chicago blues, but he has a great time playing, and it sure is fun to listen to his play.

Album Notes

Grammy Award and Handy Award Nominee, John Primer’s history is the real deal!

John’s life started in Camden Mississippi on his grandmother’s sharecropper land, dreaming of a better life and working in the fields. His biggest dream in life was to someday play his guitar with his idol Muddy Waters. John ended up doing that and much, much more!

John should be credited for helping Muddy Waters bring the Blues to Chicago and for taking it further into the 21st Century.John has been that perfect liaison – filling the gap between the older traditional style and the younger Chicago Blues style.John went from field songs and gospels, into traditional Blues, then R&B and Soul then finally pioneering the infamous Chicago Blues style we know today.

“All Original” is a dream come true for John. 12 all original songs recorded for his very own record label – Blues House Productions, is another first.

Cataloging his own music, writing, producing, teaching young musicians and sharing his experiences with the world is now his focus and life mission.

This first CD is only the beginning, putting 12 all originals into it’s collection.

“All Original” starts out fast with “Add A Little Touch”, shaking you up and getting you ready for a full blues experience. “Going Back To Mississippi” pays tribute to his home and let’s you into his heart. “I Called My Baby” is a slide guitar lovers dream! “Everyday Brings By A Change” is one of John’s favorites and represents how he looks at life. “Blue Eyed Woman”, “Other Man”, “The Woman That I am Loving”, and “Bad Child” are all great examples of John’s diverse Blues skills. “Keep On Loving The Blues” is another Primer favorite. John sings this at the end of most of his shows to send the audience home remembering to keep on loving the Blues. “At Home Alone” is a great soul-felt, minor key song, highlighting John's R&B, soulful voice. “Say Yes, Don’t Say No” shows John’s playful spirit. “All Original” ends with “Love In My Heart For You”, a traditional, acoustic duet with just John and Harmonica Hinds. John’s 3 year old daughter Aliya Makayla Becker is with them dancing around the studio, keeping daddy’s music alive and well!

This is only the beginning for John’s new label, Blues House Productions. Many more CD’s are already being worked on. The label’s intent is to preserve the Blues’ precious past, helping less fortunate musicians, while producing original music for our future.
