His music was phenomenal yet mostly undiscovered. He played the hell of of his harp and was also a darn good guitar player. His life is filled with mystery; he had kids but never introduced them to others. He lived in Detroit and later in Toledo, but facts about his life are sketchy, mostly because he told a lot of tall tales.
He made his Mark in Detroit, a hotbed for blues. Fashion was something Jack might not have completely understood but he always wanted to look good on stage. It might mean three different kinds of plaid but it was all his own style. Reynolds was a guitar and harp player. He plays all the harp parts and sings on all the tracks. Larry Gold also plays guitar on 11 of the first 12 tracks. Joel Hazzard bass and Chris Arduser drums are on the other two. The horn section on the latter is quit good. The harp work is great throughout.
These are quite cool and interesting. This is music the world should have heard and embraced. The DVD is rich on stories and info about Jack. It is not a rehash of the music on the CD, which is cool. We get to hear and see a lot about Reynolds from the film. Reynolds left Detroit after a divorce and costly settlement for the safe haven of Toledo where he continued to play and work.
Locals Art and Roman Griswold and others and he played together and that is where he met up with Gold, Newmark and the others. The Dynatones went to Toledo a lot and loved Big Jack.
Tommy Castro was in the band for awhile and he fell in love with Jack and his music. Ronnie Earl sat in with him at some festival and Jack tried to throw him off the stage for his regular guitar player. At most, a light scuff appears on the record, but it should play without any noise or skips. Even if a record appears to be perfect, I will usually use the M- grade Excellent EX Vinyl should still play with no skips of any kind.
There can be some very minor surface scuffs, but they should not affect the sound quality. However, the record is still very listenable as there are no deep scratches that cause skips. Very Good VG Vinyl doesn't necessarily look good, but still plays well enough. Surface noise will probably be present, including pops and clicks.
At higher volume levels, the music should overpower any pops and clicks present. Good VG- Vinyl is well played and looks it. However, the record should still play without skipping. It will have substantial surface noise, pops and clicks. Loss of various parts of the dynamic range will occur due to worn grooves.

Perfect Condition, which basically means that it is as good as new, literally. Vinyl is near perfect. Even if a record appears to be perfect, I will usually use the M- grade.
