A Little Something For Seven Days

File this one under "give the people what they want."

Frequent reader and commenter Seven Days, left the following comment recently, "Would love to see you do a piece on Junior Kimbrough someday too."

Junior Kimbrough - Lord, Have Mercy On Me

Robert Palmer, who also wrote the seminal book Deep Blues: A Musical and Cultural History of the Mississippi Delta, returned several years earlier to the delta to capture blues artists for his scrappy Fat Possum label. In this DVD he introduces us to the now-amplified but still elemental blues of R.L. Burnside, the late Junior Kimbrough, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Roosevelt "Booba" Barnes, and other keepers of the faith.

This DVD has "an interesting encounter with Junior Kimbrough described by Bono from U2 and much more. This is not for the faint of heart."
