Marshall "Big Jack" Reynolds was born in 1921 in the south, maybe in Albany (GA) and died in 1993 of a heart attack. His life could be summarized as that of so many thousands of emigrants from the south who, along the 40's reached the industrial northern cities in search of work, in his case Detroit, and tried to combine workdays with music. Reynolds did it by recording some sides for local Detroit's labels without any commercial repercussions. Finally, he settled in Toledo (OH) where he became a blues reference of the city and all the area. Now this album and a documentary about his life and his music see the light to do justice to a forgotten bluesmen.
