Jimmy "Duck" Holmes is as real as blues gets. He's like stepping back in time, and Broke & Hungry Records should be thanked for capturing this authentic Mississippi bluesman on disk. As a bonus, a few of the tracks feature the legendary Sam Carr on drums (for god's sake, Carr has played with everybody from Sonny Boy Williamson II to Buddy Guy!) and the ellusive Bentonia, Mississippi harmonica player Bud Spires (Spires is best known for his work with bluesman Jack Owens). This is a CD that rewards the listener more and more with each listening. Add it to your collection, and then brag about it to your blues friends.
