    Personnel: Pinetop Perkins (vocals, piano).
    It's remarkable enough that Pinetop Perkins released PINETOP PERKINS & FRIENDS mere weeks before his 95th birthday, but that the session is full of sensational playing and vital blues spirit is nothing short of miraculous. Perkins's vigor on the 88s defies the years; he sounds like a man half his age as he churns out blues classics such as "Got My Mojo Workin'" and "Sweet Home Chicago." To be sure, Perkins gets assistance from some heavy friends: B.B. King lends his stinging guitar, as do Eric Clapton and Jimmie Vaughan, alongside a host of other well-polished session men. With this 2008 release, Perkins proves that he doesn't intend to burn out or fade away, but to keep on rocking all night.

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (p.74) - "[B]oth an all-star tribute to Perkins and a testament to his remarkable stying power as a dazzling instrumentalist and a soulful, rocking vocalist."
    Living Blues (p.75) - "It's a living testament to the staying power of the blues and the rejuvenating effect that boogie woogie blues piano has on the spirit."
