The Beam Me Up Scotty’s Series, Part 18/25 (CD)
I love Fat Possum Records. I love Junior Kimbrough. I love the bands for being on this Kimbrough tribute disc. A whole lotta love.
There’s an energy to this project, which perfectly captures and celebrates the unique and powerful blues that Kimbrough made during his life. He wrote about tough times with an understanding and clarity that many pretenders can never manage.
All these bands get in there and do it up right. Junior would be proud. This kicks ass.
