Overview

Pianist Joe Liggins presented a fairly sophisticated brand of swinging jump blues to jitterbuggers during the early '50s, when his irresistible "Pink Champagne" scaled the R&B charts. Twenty-five of his very best 1950-1954 Specialty sides grace this collection, including a tasty remake of "The Honeydripper"; "Rhythm in the Barnyard," and the syncopated "Going Back to New Orleans" (recently revived by Dr. John).
