A rather languid rhythm is lifted considerably by Jessie Knight’s gravel-voiced, brash vocal on “Nothing But Money”, an obscure Checker side from Ike Turner’s regular bassman through the ‘50s. Memphis Minnie’s “Me and My Chauffer”, meanwhile, is one of the most sought after down home sides on the Checker label, a foot stomping, head swaying killer with the enigmatic harmonica maestro Little Walter part of the backing line-up.
