Rough and tumble, flawed original recording, but tough as nails, and as exciting as postwar downhome blues gets . . . Louisiana Red mines Muddy Waters’ early Aristocrat sound for all
it’s worth . . . nothing better!
Odds & Ends volume 13. We’re going back about 10,000 years—“it beats anything the modern man hears.” This set truly embodies the “mythological blues,” rampant with ramblers and cowboys ridin’ fence, polka dots and moonbeams at midnight, and dusty old dust. Legends and heroes. Time to rise and shine. New day dawning . . . or darkness closing in?
