NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! “Late in life, Arkansas-born pianist ROOSEVELT SYKES (1906-1983) had a remarkable comeback, performing at music festivals and participating in numerous up-to-date recording projects. Here are sixteen tracks recorded at the session that took place on September 17, 1975. The grand old blues and boogie pianist is heard performing solo (always a treat!), in the company of guitarists JOHNNY SHINES and LOUISIANA RED, and harmonica handler SUGAR BLUE. Roosevelt Sykes is always worth experiencing.”—Arwulf Arwulf ( Music Is My Business Artist: Roosevelt Sykes Format: LP Release Date: 3/17/2017 LABEL: Fat Possum Records UPC: 767981115511 Genre: Blues Style: Piano Blues Tracklist A1 Music Is My Business 2:39 A2 Mistake In Life 2:53 A3 New York Boogie 3:36 A4 Dream Woman 3:33 A5 Stop Stoppin’ Me 2:52 A6 Look Out For Yourself 1:52 A7 Some Right, Some Wrong 2:19 B1 Take Time Out 2:56 B2 Hot Pants 2:49 B3 A Good Woman 4:19 B4 Just A Smile 2:34 B5 Leavin’ Chicago 2:40 B6 Funky Side 2:13 B7 Last Chance 1:37 B8 Who’s That Pretty Woman 1:42 B9 How Long 3:37 GENRE: Blues
