CD Reviews

TRADITIONAL DELTA BLUES
deepbluereview | SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA USA | 05/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THIS IS A TRADITIONAL DELTA BLUES RECORDING WHICH CAPTURES R.L. BURNSIDE IN HIS PRE-ELECTRIC DAYS. THE SONGS ARE PRESENTED IN AN ORIGINAL AND PUREST FORM. THE TEMPO IS SLOW AND THOUGHTFUL. AT LEAST 5 OF THESE TUNES, JUMPER HANGING, LONG HAIR DONEY, POOR BLACK MATTIE, CATFISH BLUES AND ROLLING AND TUMBLING, ARE STANDARD BLUES NUMBERS WELL KNOWN TO FOLLOWERS OF MISSISSIPI BLUES. BURNSIDES INTERPRETATION AND ARRANGEMENT OF THESE NUMBERS IS WELL DONE. THIS CD WILL APPEAL TO DELTA BLUES FANS--ROBERT NIGHTHAWK, ROBERT JOHNSON ETC.-- AND FANS OF TRADITIONAL ACOUSTIC BLUES. OTHER BURNSIDE CD'S EQUIVALENT TO THIS ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE ARE ACOUSTIC STORIES AND MY BLACK NAME A-RINGIN'. WHILE "MY BLACK NAME" DOES NOT SHOW UP UNDER THIS R.L. BURNSIDE LISTING, IT IS AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON.COM BY TYPING IN THE CD TITLE--MY BLACK NAME--RATHER THAN THE NAME R.L. BURNSIDE. 5 STARS."
