Go Back to Your Used to Be (Jessie Mae Hemphill)

North Mississippi Hill Country blues. Hypnotic boogie. Jesse Mae was one of the best.


Skinny Woman (R.L. Burnside)

Juke joint boogie. R.L. would often preface the song with "I want a fine woman, don't want no skinny woman." Nuff said.


Down in the Valley (Champion Jack Dupree)

That house on the edge of town. Classic Delta blues. The Devil's music.


She's Your Cook (Bo Carter)

The master of the double entendre. 


All songs engineered by Landon Arkens at Blast House Studio, Madison, WI.
