Detailed discography.
Papa Charlie Jackson's last 25 recordings, dating from September of 1928 through November of 1934, and doing more proper blues here than on either previous volume. By the time of the release of the material here, Jackson was one of the most seasoned of studio bluesmen, with nearly half a decade recording experience behind him — his vocal presence on all of these records is extraordinary, and he knows how to get the most out of his instrument, guitar or banjo.
Ma and Pa Poorhouse Blues and Big Feeling Blues, both duets with Ma Rainey, present him at his most mature and naturally expressive vocally, in sharp contrast to the almost perfunctory vocals on volume one of this set. The Hattie McDaniels duets, two halves of Dentist Chair Blues, are also extremely worthwhile as far more than novelty numbers. In addition to some priceless topical songs, such as You Got That Wrong, there are some notable re-recordings here, including a killer 1934 remake of Jackson's earlier hit Skoodle-Um-Skoo (which by then had entered the repertory of Big Bill Broonzy, who was taught guitar by Jackson), and his last follow-up to "Shake That Thing", What's That Thing She's Shakin'. The delightfully risqué-sounding You Put It In, I'll Take It Out closes this collection.
