So there is a blues bar near my place. While I’m not a blues aficionado by any means, I’ve been a fan for some time. After visiting frequently (live blues seven nights a week), my appreciation is on the rise. One artist that I’ve started listening to quite a bit is Junior Kimbrough. Yes, the Black Keys are fans too, but there is nothing like the original.
Junior Kimbrough is an extremely talented guitar player from the hill country of Mississippi. His sound is almost hypnotic – it’s a soundtrack to a late-night drive, or a what you hear when they serve bbq. I can’t get enough. I dare you to listen to any of these songs and not tap your feet and nod your head:
“Leave Her Alone”:
“Keep Your Hands Off Her”:
“All Night Long”:
How good is that?
