Andrew ‘Jr Boy’ Jones – Lone Star Guitarman

Andrew ‘Jr Boy’ Jones – ‘Lone Star Guitarman’ – JSP 5807 

‘Andrew Jones is one of those musicians you have probably often heard and not known it – thinking, “that’s a great solo,” or “that’s a funky rhythm player”.

A mainstay of the Dallas/Fort Worth scene, his talent takes him all over the USA and the world. And when this DVD was filmed Andrew had himself just stepped into the limelight for the first time with his debut album ‘I Need Time’, cut for JSP.

As that album – and this DVD – demonstrate, he’s a gifted songwriter and guitarist and an able singer. If he’s been tempted by ‘first call’ guitarist and bandleader duties, it’s been for stars like Freddie King, Katie Webster, Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby Patterson and Johnnie Taylor.

But here it’s Jr Boy Jones who takes the bow at the end of the show – and rarely has applause been better deserved.

And the interviews included here how Andrew telling much about his contemporaries – local and international stars – and of course his time with Freddie King.

These Blues Archive DVDs represent probably the most important series of filmed blues performances ever. There is much more of the material to be released yet, so credit to Andrew Jr Boy Jones for being only the sixth artist yet to be released!!’
