"Shake Your Moneymaker" brings together the best tracks Elmore James cut for Fire Records. James did a lot of label-hopping in his 12-year recording career (tragically, he died of a heart attack at 45), but his tenure at Fire (during 1959-'61) yielded some of his finest work.

Elmore James (vocals, guitar); Jimmy Spruill, Riff Ruffin (guitar); Sam Myers (harmonica); J.T. Brown (tenor saxophone); Paul Williams (baritone saxophone); Danny Moore (trumpet); Johnny "Big Moose" Walker, Johnny Jones, Johnny Acey (piano); Sammy Lee Bully, Homesick James (bass); King Mose, Belton Evans, Johnny Williams, Odie Payne (drums)
