CD Reviews

Delta blues at it's best and rawest.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Burnside does it the way it was meant to be done. He hasn't changed the music a bit from when he first began in Mississippi. This album it a prime example of R.L. Burnside's unique style , with the thumping bass and the repetition, it walks along the road next to Big Joe Williams and Son House. He captures the spirit of the Delta with music that you just know he sat on the back porch and wrote as the sun went down. R.L.'s version of Hobo Blues is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine."

"This is my favorite acoustic R.L. Burnside CD. The songs are done in the tradition of Son House and Robert Johnson. The tempo is slow and thoughtful utilizing a single note style with a rhythmic counterpart.This CD will appeal to those who enjoy the music of Son House, Robert Johnson, Robert Nighthawk, Elmore James and Lightnin' Hopkins. Other Burnside acoustic CD's that are equivalent to this CD are "Mississippi Blues" (French Import)(5 STARS) and "My Black Name A Ringin"(4.5 STARS)"
