Junior Kimbrough

I would like to first start off by apologizing for the poor quality. Its seriously the only version of this song that I could find. Having been unable to blog for a while (this semester is slowly tearing me down) I’ve made a genuine effort today to make sure I posted.
Junior Kimbrough is described as a “living lost legend” of the blues. Having only sparse recordings for the earlier parts of his life, Kimbrough was eventually sought out by a die hard fan and encouraged to actually record and travel. His “hypnotic” edgy blues is one of legends that became an influence for other artists such as the Black Keys, who point to Kimbrough for giving them their sound.
While still achieving some fame in the blues community, Kimbrough still remains a cult figure today. Even his best recordings are still rough but his biggest draw is his live shows.
If you enjoy the blues, sit back, relax and listen well.
