Worthy Effort!
deepbluereview | SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA USA | 06/05/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Johnny Farmer is another of the Mississipi Hills bluesmen discovered and signed by Fat Possum Records. When comparing him to some of the others, R.L. Burnside, CeDell Davis, Junior Kimbrough, Asie Payton, Jessie Mae Hemphill and T-Model Ford, for example, Farmer's performance falls a bit short. That however, does not, in any way, suggest that he is not worth listening to, because he is. Farmer's sound is quite raw armed with nothing more than an old guitar plugged directly into a small Peavy amplifier and a deep well socket on his pinky for a slide. The songs on this disc are all traditional numbers arranged and interpreted by Johnny Farmer. Because Farmer does not fancy himself as a musician, it is unlikely that he will ever be coaxed out of his trailer for a follow-up. As such, we will probably never know what he could do with some original material and some decent equipment. Overall, a decent effort from an impoverished bluesman."
Pure heart from start to finish

"What's striking abt music like this is just how much is communicated with so little. Just a cheap electric guitar plugged into an even cheaper amp & a voice so rich & direct & so full of real passion & experience it'd leave your average slick blues singer gasping in awe. Music like this isn't just a joy to behold but also teaches me how to listen - not with the ears but with the heart. Real heartfelt communication is rare nowadays especially in music so buy this cd & soak it up & remember - communication is two-way - so you'll need to do your bit."
