Review by Bruce Eder

The first 27 of Papa Charlie Jackson's recorded works is, on about ten counts, one of the most important blues documents you can find, dating all the way back to August of 1924, before there was even electrical recording or a true definition to "blues." Indeed, the popular highlight is a dance number called Shake That Thing, which fairly overwhelmed a lot of Jackson's truer blues records with its beat. The opening number, Papa's Lawdy Lawdy Blues, shows a kind of formative blues, with it and its B-side Airy Man (aka "Hairy Man") Blues closer in spirit to comic novelty numbers.
