Don Croissant aka Li le Jimmy is one of the pioneers of the blues and Rock ’n Roll in Belgium. This leading musician who played the support act of The Rolling Stones and The Who in the six es, and who played at the side of Chris Whitley for a long me, earns a place in the spotlights for his solo work. Now, at the age of 70, Don Croissant plays the Hill Country Blues like a real master. His style is heavily in uenced by John Lee Hooker and R.L. Burnside. The Tiger Tapes were recorded in a hotel
room in Crete with just one microphone and a minidisc. It’s a series of 9 original songs and one cover of R.L. Burn- side’s Goin’ Down South. The recordings were previously released on CD, but these are a rare nd. The re-release on vinyl honors the music even more.
