Pick of the Week (9/5/05)

Junior Kimbrough -- All Night Long (Fat Possum) 1997

It's coincidental but fitting that I put this pick up just after Burnside's passing. Kimbrough was the other key figure in Fat Possum's blues resurrection. This album is the only one of his I have, and it fully lived up to the glowing recommendation with which I was given it. If you don't know Fat Possum Records, you could do worse than to start here.

In other blues news, the new Otis Taylor is a jaw-dropper.
