Album Review

"Goin' Down Slow" is one of the true acknowledged classics of the blues, but very few fans have ever heard the original by St. Louis Jimmy Oden, the song's composer. The original is aboard here along with 23 other fine examples of this singer's catchy songwriting ability. Highlights include "Bad Condition," "Sittin' and Thinkin'," "So Nice and Kind" (featuring slide guitar courtesy of Muddy Waters), and a big-band remake of "Goin' Down Slow." A missing chapter in blues history.


Born: 26 June 1903 in Nashville, TN

Genre: Blues

Years Active: '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s
