In what amounts to a state-of-the-art field recording, Robert Palmer
(author of Deep Blues
, one of the finest books ever written on the subject) took a 24 track mobile unit into the Delta and came back with ample recorded proof that the low-down, jukejoint brand of Mississippi blues is still alive, well, and flourishing. No famous names, just loads of incredible music. With fidelity so true you can hear the beer bottles clinking on the tables, all live blues recordings should sound this exciting. A new standard of excellence.
