No other Dupree collection encompasses so many vintage labels In-depth liner notes by compiler Bill Dahl cover the entirety of Dupree’s spectacular career as a pioneering blues and barrelhouse pianist Rare photos and illustrations in the bookletChampion Jack Dupree came by his pugilistic moniker naturally. Before the New Orleans-born piano pounder became a blues legend, he was a prolific prizefighter. But Dupree’s legacy resides not standing in the ring but sitting at the ivories. Over the course of an incredible career that stretched across more than half a century, Jack did an amazing amount of recording – and a whole lot of rocking. Dupree laid down a slew of barrelhouse boogies and floor-rattling rocking blues during the postwar era, and Bear Family’s ‘Champion Jack Dupree Rocks’ brings together an impressive array of his greatest rafter-rattlers, With non-stop Dupree stormers including Shake Baby Shake, Shim Sham Shammy, and Nasty Boogie, this disc rocks from beginning to end!
