The Essential Recordings

Released 09/03/18 Label Primo Genre Blues Cat no. PRMCD6232


There was perhaps no other artist more entitled to sing the Blues than Champion Jack Dupree, the American Blues pianist and singer who overcame all the hardships that life could throw at him to become a pivotal part of the U.S. Blues scene and a major influence on the British Blues Boom. The exuberant and life- affirming music presented here is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit over extreme adversity. Spanning 20 years (1941-1961) this set contains all the champ's key recordings.
