Now Appearing was originally released in 1960 on Vee Jay Records and reissued by Collectables in 2000. This short 11-track set doesn't include any of Reed's most beloved hits but does highlight material that could have been. Reed's patented swamp blues guitar and harmonica lines mixed with his uniquely lazy vocal style are in the forefront of tunes like "Got Me Chasing You," "You Know You're Looking Good," "In the Morning," and "Tell the World I Do." Any of the Jimmy Reed Vee Jay reissues are recommended.
