James Booker - Classified (Vinyl Reissue)

A deeply complex character, James Booker only released two studio albums in his lifetime. However, Classified - his unintended swan song - offers one of his greatest commercially-released performances. Recorded in 1982, it is primarily the result of a whirlwind, four-hour session. In addition to several originals, the album includes a jaunty repertoire of mainly local fare, including Fats Domino’s “One For The Highway” and Lloyd Price’s “Lawdy Miss Clawdy.”
