Junior Parker 
Driving Wheel 

Duke Records Lp DLP 76

The legendary Little Junior Parker is considered more of an R&B stylist with distinct blues leanings than a true blues artist. He could sing in a harder yet soulful R&B style and then switch to a smoother sound sometimes reminiscent of the great Charles Brown, or Bobby “Blue” Bland. As consistently modern a bluesman as he insisted on being, he’d placed his Sonny Boy Williamson-influenced harmonica interjections on the back burner to emphasize his smoothly burnished vocals on R&B-styled material. Although Junior Parker had been on the scene since the early 1950s (recording numerous singles for different labels), his first long play was not issued until 1962 (by Duke Records). Parker’s exceptional touch and versatility can be heard across these tracks, which consist of a magnificent mix of emotional blues, jump tunes, electrifying moments, and soulful slow-tempo numbers.
