Buy myself a cool guitar!

I love this album, but then I love Jimmy Thackery. Yeah, his voice could be better, but his licks are truly his own!

The Essential Jimmy Thackery

A great album to sit and relax to or to get up and party to - works either way - really great stuff!

They Say All Music Guide

Jimmy Thackery’s eight CDs for the Blind Pig label rank with the finest work of his career. A passionate blues guitarist and an effective singer, Thackery brings creativity and a freshness to his renditions of blues, blues ballads, and near-blues. This sampler draws its 13 selections from the eight releases, putting the emphasis on the leader. Thackery is heard in guitar-bass-drums trios for eight of the selections and joined by various guests (including one appearance apiece by guitarists Lonnie Brooks, Duke Robillard, and John Mooney) on the other five tracks. The Essential Jimmy Thackery lives up to its name and serves as a perfect introduction to the bluesman’s music. – Scott Yanow
