Synopsis

Amazon.com
Kimbrough was easily the most arresting figure in "Deep Blues," the documentary movie and soundtrack album about the contemporary Delta blues scene. Music critic Robert Palmer, the movie's "guide," produced All Night Long, Kimbrough's first full length album after more than 40 years of music-making. While many of the other modern Delta musicians are mere imitators of their predecessors, Kimbrough is starkly original. He's backed by just a drummer and bassist who have learned, after years of weekend dance parties at Kimbrough's juke joint, how to anticipate his constant, subtle shifts of rhythmic emphasis. The results resemble John Lee Hooker's boogie but sound less fussy, more ancient, more elemental. --Geoffrey Himes

This album electrifies me!!!

"Blues is really a genre of music that's in constantly actualization.The versatility of blues musicians to creates, inovates,is something that gives me all of the pleasure and this album is just like what i'm saying.
This is a fantastic album with great electric mix with the deeply
sounds from the birthplace of blues,the Mississipi Delta.This kind of sound is a new taste,something never did before,and we must recognize the efforts of Fat Possum Records staff to produces something so strong;so deep;so new,and old too!!!
This album is a treasure and Rolling Stones Magazine was right when rated this album among the 10 best blues albums of the decade,it's undobtedly true!!!
For me,specially a true bluesfan,we must say that blues will never die,and it's stronger than ever,the presence of new bluesbloods,mixing great rythms,creating something really new,all of this things renew my soul,and encourages me to follow my way to study and promotes this fantastic rythm,THE BLUES!!!!"

"Hypnotic? Yes.
Deep? Yes.
Blues? Of Course.
Philip Glass? If he made a blues album it would not even come close to the beauty and groove found on this record.
Junior was a truly origianal musician. I haven't heard an artist ever who was as unique as he was. His guitar playing and vocals are intense and soulful. Junior's sense of verses and choruses is all his own. It seems almost improvised because, of how natural he makes it all feel.
Praise must also go to the other musicians who play alongside Junior. Gary Burnside plays bass and Kenny Malone plays drums.They blend perfectly with Junior. The playing of these three musicians is perfect.This is probably the best dance music I have ever heard and that is exactly what it was used for."

"I've heard a lot of blues, but the late Junior Kimbrough's "All Night Long" has moved me more than anything I have heard in years. Three piece band, all single takes, and some of the purest, most honest blues I've ever heard. This music is haunting like Skip James maybe, and you won't soon forget it. My only regret is not having been able to see him live. You've gotta check it out."
