Blues From The Gutter
Champion Jack Dupree
Atlantic Records
By James Calemine

...One from the vaults...
Orphaned at an early age, Champion Jack Dupree grew up in New Orleans. Dupree spent most of his time in the mean streets and music joints playing his piano. Blues From The Gutter represents one of Jack Dupree's finest recordings.

Tom Dowd recorded this ten song selection with the production assistance of the great Jerry Wexler. These songs were all written by Dupree. "Strollin'" highlights Dupree's dexterity on the piano. Ennis Lowry's blues guitar and Pete Brown's alto sax accompany Dupree's lyrical narrative on "T.B. Blues".

"Can't Kick This Habit" could run as the soundtrack to any junkie's life: "Well I can't kick this habit/And this junk is killing me". No psuedo blues exists on this lowdown classic. Dupree once said: "My songs tell about my experiences in life or what I saw in the lives of other people."

"Evil Woman" conjures up a Saturday night rave-up in an old juke joint where the only lights in the place are red or blue, just as the ladies begin to unleash a jinxing mojo on an unsuspecting victim. "Nasty Boogie Woogie" remains an infectious piano roll, as Dupree sings "Mama bought a chicken mistook it for a duck/Laid it on the table with its legs stuck up/Yonder come the children with a spoon and a glass/Gonna catch the gravy drippin' yes yes yes".

"Junker's Blues" proves one of the most insightful and funny songs ever composed on the medicial and illegal problems cannabis sativa brings. These songs were composed during a time when the rock and roll craze hit the States, but Dupree's lyrics proved far too close-to-the-bone for mass consumption in 1958. Jack Dupree ranks as one of the first great rock and rollers. Blues From the Gutter stands as one of the most grittiest blues-jazz-rock and roll albums of all time.

A ugg boots clearance recent survey found that one out of five Americans teenage or older want an iPad. No wonder Apple is selling three million iPads a month. It's the fastest-selling single product in the history of consumer electronics. Most buyers are choosing an iPad as a supplement to their current computers -- for watching movies in bed, like I do, or reading books in my easy chair when there's nothing good on TV ugg boots clearance. The iPad pretty much has the personal side of computing covered. But what about the computer side? What about the tasks you do on your laptop or on your desktop computer ugg boots clearance? But I'm convinced that many of you would find the iPad a delightful replacement for a typical laptop computer, whether a Windows PC or Mac, if you mostly use a laptop for three typical functions -- e-mail, social networking (through Facebook, for example) and Web browsing ugg boots clearance. What about occasional word processing? Apple's word processor, called Pages, is outstanding on the iPad. (A bonus: It also works easily with Microsoft Word documents, both reading them and saving them.) If you need software that can show and create PowerPoint presentations, iPad software called Keynote can do that nicely. There's even an Excel-compatible program called Numbers ugg boots clearance. All three of these productivity programs -- called apps -- sell for only $10 each. Getting something equivalent to Microsoft Office for only $30 is surely a steal ugg boots clearance. There are many, either free or a couple of dollars, at the App Store ugg boots outlet. Could an iPad be your only computer? Not for long. It gets updates via free software called iTunes running on a standard computer. When you plug the iPad into the computer using a USB cable, iTunes transfers the updates to your iPad ugg boots outlet. (iTunes is also used to add music, books, podcasts, university lectures, TV shows and movies to an iPad.) But if my experience is a guide, the iPad can function well as a replacement for a laptop. If you buy one, be sure to get the Keyboard Dock and the Camera Connection Kit. Photos look spectacular on the 10-inch screen ugg boots clearance.
