With a background in jazz and blues and honed by years of playing his fiddle for tourists, and possessing an energetic, entertaining versatility, especially after he switched to the electric violin and began working with rock bands, most notably the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship nexus, Papa John Creach was a one-of-a-kind entertainer and musician. This set combines two of his albums, 1972's Filthy! and 1974's Playing My Fiddle for You, in a single package. ---Steve Leggett, AllMusic Review

Violinist Papa John Creach first came to the notice of rock fans when he joined Jefferson Airplane and its spin-off group, Hot Tuna, in 1970. By that time, he was already in his early fifties, a veteran of jazz and blues associations, while his fellow bandmembers were still approaching 30. Nevertheless, using an electrified violin, Creach added a new psychedelic edge to the Airplane in its final days. The band split in 1972, by which time Creach had begun to release solo albums on its custom label, Grunt. the Airplane was reorganized and relaunched as Jefferson Starship, and Creach was with it through its million-selling Red Octopus album in 1975. He continued to make solo albums through 1992, when he released Papa Blues. Papa John Creach died of heart failure in 1994 at the age of 76. ---William Ruhlmann, Rovi

At the time this album was recorded, Jefferson Airplane had expanded from a rock group into something of a San Francisco collective of musicians and launched its own record label, Grunt, necessitating a flow of product. As a result, there was a flurry of releases by the Airplane itself and several offshoots, with each of these records featuring several members of the loose aggregation informally dubbed PERRO (the Planet Earth Rock 'N' Roll Orchestra). Papa John Creach, violinist for the Airplane and its spin-off group, Hot Tuna, was the leader on this set, which featured members of the Airplane (Grace Slick, for example, duets with Creach on the lead-off track, "The Janitor Drives a Cadillac"), Quicksilver Messenger Service, and the Grateful Dead. The result sounds like the Airplane records of the period, with a bit more of Creach's electric violin soaring over the proceedings. ---William Ruhlmann, Rovi

“At the age of 75 he released an album with the Bernie Pearl Blues Band called ‘Papa Blues’, his first album in 15 years as well as his first totally blues album. The album shows him to be remarkably creative, confident and energetic. The jump blues arrangements do the material justice and the quivering glissandos for which Creach was known sound fresher than ever. His playing is alternately sweet and gritty, the singing soulful, and the material mostly new. This is the album for which he should be remembered.” ---Paul E. Comeau, Dirty Linen,
