I did not know about Jack Kelly, but the name "The South Memphis Jug Band" sounded promising. And the music here more than lives up to its promise !
Jack Kelly has a great blues voice and phrasing. He is accompanied by the best Memphis musicians of his time - Will Batts and Dan Sane - who were also working regularly with Frank Stokes and The Memphis Jug Band.
Jack Kelly is the bluesiest of the Memphis musicians - more than Stokes, Jim Jackson, and even Furry Lewis. He sticks to the blues form - applying his rough voice in a timeless fashion.
I love this music and I am sure any blues fan will feel the same.
