Product Description

(1995 'Fat Possum') (49:38/10) 'The real blues' - from North Mississippi. Downhome Blues mit kleiner Band, kein Schnickschnack, geradeaus und ehrlich, eben: Blues. Wärmstens zu empfehlen / blues like these are not performed very much any more. The real, downhome blues from the state of Mississippi, performed by a small band of guitar, bass and drums. Personally recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true original 17 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Kimbrough was easily the most arresting figure in "Deep Blues," the documentary movie and soundtrack album about the contemporary Delta blues scene. Music critic Robert Palmer, the movie's "guide," produced All Night Long, Kimbrough's first full length album after more than 40 years of music-making. While many of the other modern Delta musicians are mere imitators of their predecessors, Kimbrough is starkly original. He's backed by just a drummer and bassist who have learned, after years of weekend dance parties at Kimbrough's juke joint, how to anticipate his constant, subtle shifts of rhythmic emphasis. The results resemble John Lee Hooker's boogie but sound less fussy, more ancient, more elemental.
Blues is really a genre of music that's in a process of constant flux, continual development and innovation..The versatility of blues musicians who create something that gives continuing fulfilment and pleasure is a gift that this great and now sadly missed musician had in abundance.
This is a fantastic album fulfilling the best of the deeply ingrained sounds emanating from the birthplace of blues,the Mississipi Delta.This album is a treasure and Rolling Stone Magazine was right when it rated this album among the 10 best blues albums of the decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Junior's Juke 17 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hypnotic? Yes.
Deep? Yes.
Blues? Of Course.
Philip Glass? If he made a blues album it would not even come close to the beauty and groove found on this record.

Junior was a truly origianal musician. I haven't heard an artist ever who was as unique as he was. His guitar playing and vocals are intense and soulful. Junior's sense of verses and choruses is all his own. It seems almost improvised because, of how natural he makes it all feel.

Praise must also go to the other musicians who play alongside Junior. Gary Burnside plays bass and Kenny Malone plays drums.They blend perfectly with Junior. The playing of these three musicians is perfect.This is probably the best dance music I have ever heard and that is exactly what it was used for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Junior Kimbrough is Deep 16 Jan 2000
By Carl Busacca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've heard a lot of blues, but the late Junior Kimbrough's "All Night Long" has moved me more than anything I have heard in years. Three piece band, all single takes, and some of the purest, most honest blues I've ever heard. This music is haunting like Skip James maybe, and you won't soon forget it. My only regret is not having been able to see him live. You've gotta check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album electrifies me!!! 8 Sep 2001
By Ricardo Neves Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Blues is really a genre of music that's in constantly actualization.The versatility of blues musicians to creates, inovates,is something that gives me all of the pleasure and this album is just like what i'm saying.
This is a fantastic album with great electric mix with the deeply
sounds from the birthplace of blues,the Mississipi Delta.This kind of sound is a new taste,something never did before,and we must recognize the efforts of Fat Possum Records staff to produces something so strong;so deep;so new,and old too!!!
This album is a treasure and Rolling Stones Magazine was right when rated this album among the 10 best blues albums of the decade,it's undobtedly true!!!
For me,specially a true bluesfan,we must say that blues will never die,and it's stronger than ever,the presence of new bluesbloods,mixing great rythms,creating something really new,all of this things renew my soul,and encourages me to follow my way to study and promotes this fantastic rythm,THE BLUES!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Mississippi blues from a master, now departed 4 Jun 1999
By jill@ime.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Junior Kimbrough was the real thing. His music was, and will ever remain, orginal and distinctive. It gets down in your soul.
If you love the blues, buy anything Jr. Kimbrough ever did. It's not slick by any means, just good ol' Mississippi hill country music, dark and dangerous and wonderful. . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars ESSENTIAL 24 Feb 2011
By scott frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just buy it. You'll never regret it.
I thought "Most Things..." was bomb, then I heard the deep groove of this record and was floored. Live to 2 track and directly into the inner Howlin' Wolf I know you have. It really is that sick.
