Jimmy Liggins

Pianist/singer Joe Liggins and younger brother, guitarist/singer Jimmy Liggins didn’t record together. They each had impressive and hit laden careers apart. Joe made history with “The Honeydripper” which sat at #1 on the R&B; charts for over 10 weeks in 1945, while Jimmy’s biggest R&B; hit was “Drunk” in 1953. This week, Matt The Cat focuses on both brothers, who contributed greatly to the R&B; scene of the late 40s and early 50s.
