Being a relic of the 60's Brit Blues-Rock era and a fan of Fleetwood Mac/Chicken Shack/John Mayall blues (a reference to Liverpool Scene if anyone can remember them), I was amazed when I heard this EP and thought I must have been transported back in time. I am sure I will feel as nostalgic about this album in 40 years time (even though I will be 100) as I do about Cream or Ten Years After albums now. That they're Yanks rather than Brits is just a technicality. Although I thought I knew many of the old black blues artists, I had never heard of Junior Kimbrough (which only goes to show what little I know) so had no idea what to expect when I first heard this EP. But from the opening track "Keep Your Hands Off My Woman" (what a brilliant title! and it's an absolute electric blues gem) to the last "My Mind is Ramblin'" (which particularly resonates with me an my stage of decreptitude) the whole album is a real treat. Not one dud. If you're someone from my era who just doesn't know what to buy of current music, buy this. You won't be disappointed.

I have listened to The Black Keys for years and, although thickfreakness was great, I believe they still havent managed to re-create the magic of The Big Come Up. With Chulahoma all of the intimacy and warmth of that record is restored. Its obvious Dan is a huge Kimbrough fan; the songs are lovingly performed at a leisurely pace that works really well. I liked Magic Potion, but I probably now listen to this Ep more than any of the other albums. That could be worrying since the songs are not theirs, but the execution of them is pure Black Keys. Enough of the Jack and Dan comparisons, they are worlds apart and as good as each other.

When I brought this I had never heard of Junior Kimbrough but was a huge fan of the Black Keys. Despite that this artifact of pure soul and heavy gut punching rock is to me there best work and a shame that it did not extend to a whole album. Every song is performed from the heart. Keep your hands off her is the opener which floats above the air entering your mind with Dan Auerbach's plea to leave his girl alone. Have Mercy on Me is my favourite song as it kick statrs with brooding stormcloud of blues rock we are all use to from them, then after the storm comes the repentance, a perfect song for anyone who has done things worng in there life and how much we all seek mercy and forgiveness. Work Me and Meet me in the City are both excellent numbers but the next track Nobody But You surpasses them, the crying anguish of the blues are ever present here, the lusting after a girl you can't get who is always on your mind. The closer My Mind is Ramblin is the poetic wanderings of the mind and builds up to the crescnedo that has been worked up across the EP. The guitar work pierces the skin and Pat's heavy hitting brings you down to the ground.

The Black Keys have created something timeless and incredibly special, so much so that we are treated to at the end a phone message from Junior Kimbrough's wife expressing her appreciation of what the duo have put together. As for the man himself, it is well worth checking Junior Kimbrough out. An often overlooked figure when discussing blues giants. Now thanks to this moving and flawless tribute, it will direct people towards his music.

I agree totally with the previous reviews. A straight blues cover EP, that has so atmospheric, emotional and quite simply beautiful. It's the best 6 you'll ever spend. My favorite keys album, along with Thickfreakness.

This was the Ep made before the fantastic `Magic Potion` album was released and after `Rubber Factory`
It has hints of both albums and is an Ep so don't expect a brilliant piece of work but definitely a notable one worth purchasing if you are a fan of the 2 piece blues act from the states.
Stand out songs include `nobody but you` and `keep your hands off her` and the rest ambles along nicely in their blues infused rock noise.

If your a fan an essential purchase.

I'm a Black Keys fan but their take on Junior Kimbrough's music is extraordinary. It's a shame that a blues artist as talented as Kimbrough needs the intervention of a modern band to introduce the world to his genius, yet out of that unfairness has risen something wonderful. Describing this as the best thing the Keys have ever done isn't meant as an insult, after all they had the entire Kimbrough backlog to choose from so you'd expect an EP of covers to stand a fair chance of being successful, and this is a masterpiece. This is blues that is sad yet somehow simultaneously gloriously uplifting, almost hypnotic, and you'll find yourself drifting off into another world at times, carried along by the music.
If you're a fan of the Black Keys or even just have a passing interest in the blues, buy this. And if you're not a fan of Junior Kimbrough yet then do yourself a favour and buy yourself some of his own recordings too, as I can't believe anyone who likes the blues could fail to fall in love with his music. The word "genius" is much over-used but Kimbrough deserves the tag, and paired with one of the most innovative bands of the last decade it's no surprise this record is as good as it is.
