Muze PNote Neatly boiling down Koko Taylor's quarter-century with the blues-specialist label Alligator Records into one unbeatable compilation, DELUXE EDITION is a perfect introduction to Taylor's immense charms. Kicking off with "I'm a Woman," a no-nonsense response to Muddy Waters's "I'm a Man," the 15-track compilation skims the cream from nine already good-to-great albums and adds one excellent new track, the sassy in-praise-of-younger-men testimonial "Man Size Job." The selection skews heavily to duets and other collaborations, such as a rollicking version of the Willie Dixon standard "Hey Bartender" with Pinetop Perkins contributing his familiar barrelhouse piano licks, and a soulful duet with B.B. King on "Blues Hotel." Although Taylor remains better known for her '60s sides on Chess Records (the version of "Wang Dang Doodle" here is no match for her '65 original, one of the great blues records of that decade), DELUXE EDITION is the best single-disc introduction to her music.

Artist Overview

Koko Taylor came in on the tail end of Chess Records' heyday, but she managed to score the legendary blues label one of its last big hits with her 1966 version of the Willie Dixon-penned "Wang Dang Doodle." Taylor's raw, gritty, soulful vocal style was tailor-made for electrified urban blues, and even after departing Chess for Alligator in the '70s she maintained a large audience. Taylor continued recording and performing extensively into the 21st century, her 2000 release ROYAL BLUE receiving a Grammy Nomination for best blues album.
