Jimmy Witherspoon is one of the most distinctive of all urban blues stylists, a singer who alternately croons and shouts. At this 1963 session, the fourth of his eight albums for Prestige, he found himself in the highly empathetic company of a New York studio combo that featured the churchy organ of Paul Griffin and the sweetly stinging guitar of Lord Westbrook. Besides updating his 1949 hit, "No Rollin’ Blues," ’Spoon applied his warmly resonant baritone to a program of other original compositions and to songs associated with Jimmy Rushing, Al Jolson, Little Walter, Saunders King, and St. Louis Jimmy. The double-entendre-filled title track was a 1945 hit for Wynonie Harris and inspired Arthur Crudup’s famous "So Glad You’re Mine" of the following year.
