Mathis James Reed (September 6, 1925 – August 29, 1976) was an American blues musician and songwriter. His particular style of electric blues was popular with blues as well as non-blues audiences – Reed's songs such as "Honest I Do" (1957), "Baby What You Want Me to Do" (1960), "Big Boss Man" (1961), and "Bright Lights, Big City" (1961) appeared on both Billboard magazine's rhythm and blues and Hot 100 singles charts.

The success of Jimmy Reed is one of the most fascinating in American roots music. At first listen, his lazy vocals and squeaky harmonica solos might not seem like a sound particularly suited to mainstream taste. BMI lists over 30 covers of ‘Baby What You Want Me to Do’ alone, while Elvis Presley chose to sing ‘Big Boss Man’ (one of the few Reed hits that was not from his own pen) on his 1968 television comeback special. When he released an album of blues cover songs on Vee Jay (an idea that at first seems absurd), he clearly had learned and practiced the songs, making all the changes and lyrical twists, while transforming them into pure Jimmy Reed. He seems to have made an effort to get his life together.
