We gave it an A-

Producer George Kilby Jr. has gotten 79-year-old blues pianist-singer Pinetop Perkins to do two things here he almost never does in public: play unaccompanied and talk about himself. This warm musical autobiography is the year’s most beguiling new blues release. Let’s hope it inspires follow-ups by even-more-senior blues greats Booker T. Lawrie and Jimmy Walker.
