Together with John Lee Hooker and Eddie Kirkland, the magnificent but overlooked Bobo Jenkins was a pivotal figure in the Detroit blues scene of the ‘50s and ‘60s. An electric blues guitarist, singer and songwriter, Jenkins worked at the Packard Motor Company and on the side, managed a garage, before landing a job at Chrysler, where he worked for 27 years. He wrote most of his great songs while working on the assembly line. He got his rhythms from the machines on the line, and he would state that it was like listening to a band all day. This collector’s CD release contains those hard-to-find 7” sides Bobo Jenkins made for different imprints like Chess, Fortune, and Boxer. Highlights include the sensational “Democrat Blues,” “10 Below Zero,” and “Bad Luck & Trouble.” In addition, this remastered set also presents other obscure recordings Jenkins cut in Detroit at the peak of his career, some of them on his own record label, Big Star.
Recorded in Detroit and Chicago, USA.
