Reseña de álbum

Pinetop Perkins' Heritage of the Blues: The Complete Hightone Sessions is a welcome if strange reissue. In a sense, none of the tracks here have been issued before — at least not in this form.

Although it seems as though he was around Chicago forever, the Mississippi native actually got a relatively late start on his path to Windy City immortality. It was only when Muddy Waters took him on to replace Otis Spann in 1969 that Perkins' rolling...
