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.

Excellent wistful rambling blues album recorded as tribute to Junior Kimbrough a black Mississippi blues guitarists who died in 1998. The CD is short on content at just 27 minutes and was the last album to be recorded with Fat Possum Recorded before The Black Keys moved to Nonesuch, after which their style changed direction. So this is a retrospective look at The Black Keys work, and after 3 or 4 plays, somehow really works. Anyone who likes The Keys, White Stripes, Led Zeppelin etc in blues mode, will love this.

Really good album. Sounds even better on the vinyl. Underrated in my opinion.

In my mind probably their best album if you love that thing they do with guitars :D Great to listen to with the neighbours away (or in if you hate them) and the volume up loud :D

As always, they talk to our r present and future fears, but, as always, offer redemption in family, community and solidarity. Another no-brainer buy

Great album and I have quite a few of theirs. Saw them live in Birmingham and they didn't disappoint. Shame they haven't had more exposure in the U.K.
