5.0 out of 5 stars King of the Single Entendre 27 Dec 2004
By Barry - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Bo Carter is always noted for his barely veiled celebration of carnal pleasures and clever lyrics. While that is well deserved recognition, and its hard to think of anyone who has ever celebrated sex as joyfully as Bo Carter, he's still one of the most undeservedly obscure artists to ever come out of Mississippi.

Carter's guitar work and vocals put him in a league with other Delta Blues icons like Son house and Robert Johnson. That sounds like high praise, and it is. From his work with his family hokum string band (Mississippi Sheiks)through his solo work, Carter is a shining example of the Delta style, and its a shame his novelty work gets so much more attention than his musical talent.

4.0 out of 5 stars How Many Ways Can You Say It? 22 Aug 2000
By Craig Riecke - Published on
Format:Audio CD
It sounds juvenile. Bo Carter here writes 14 metaphors for sex using potato diggers, pencils, and pincushions to stand for parts of the anatomy. But what starts off as funny mellows with age into something comforting and sly. You're in on the joke. And in his world, men and women enjoy themselves A LOT. I mean, when was the last time you heard that? In so much of today's music, sex either screws you up or makes you a status symbol. Here, the music (a lone guitar and temperate, folksy, semi-blues picking) and lyrics suggest we are taking it way too seriously. He makes Hokum Blue's finest statement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprised. 9 Feb 2008
By Karina - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'm a blues fan, not easy listening jazzy blues, but the gritty, soulful kind. So when I say I bought this cd because I was going "Oh wow, no, this can't be real.", giggling to myself the whole time, I mean it as no insult to the blues genre. I couldn't quite remember how I stumbled across Bo, and I just now remembered: I was researching the song I was named after (Correna, Correna) and stumbled across his name on wikipedia. Searching further, I came across this.

So I laughed. A lot. I giggled until my face got a little red, and I called up my friends and told them they had to come over and hear this. And they did, and they laughed, too. But with time, my feeling about this cd has changed. I actually LIKE it. I pop this cd into my cd player and it mellows me. It's almost a little witty, and it has a great sound.

So while originally bought on a ridiculous, silly whim, I have come to find this cd in my cd player quite often. It always amazes me when that happens.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bo knows ........ 29 Aug 2009
By History-Eric - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album from a historic blues player that sadly, most people do not know. Bo may be considered inappropriate for the times, but he sure can lively up the mood. This is a solid country blues album from start to finish, which the guys will enjoy. I mean c'mon, with a song like "pin in your cushion", can we really ask more?
