Performer Notes
  • & The Soul Blues Boys.
  • Junior Kimbrough & The Soul Blues Boys includes: David "Junior" Kimbrough (vocals, guitar).
  • If All Night Long was a great electric blues portrait, this sophomore release, given more widespread distribution via Fat Possum's deal with Capricorn, is an extension of the portrait, but with a lot more grit and grind thrown in, given a darker, deeper sound by a change in location (still Kimbrough's joint, but a different building). The vocals are further back, buried in the thick, heavy electric mix -- some of this music here is Southern electric blues sounding about the way it might when the apocalypse is just around the corner. Forget the fancy stuff, the polished edges, the studio touches -- there are no second takes, no overdubs, no last chances. It's terrifyingly compelling at times. Junior Kimbrough plays the blues with a raw edge, and it's brilliant, dark and mesmerizing -- and it's on CD, with nothing buried, nothing hidden, and nothing safe, all the sharp edges intact. ~ Steven McDonald
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/29/94-1/12/95, p.181) - "...Junior Kimbrough is the blues at its rawest....Chulahoma, Miss., is home to Kimbrough, and only that kind of harsh, lush ancient South could spawn these blues. An electric outfit, the Soul Blues Boys power charge [the music]..."

Option (11-12/94, p.125) - "...The grooves...here are so sweet and thick it's amazing they can make it through the speaker cones....These are the blues, not as sanitized pop fare or dusted-up museum pieces..."

Living Blues (9-10/94, p.64) - "...may be the most primal sound anywhere... relentless and intense...pre-shuffle, modal electric blues, the roots of the root....as a document of some of the most unfettered and emotionally honest blues...today, this disc is indispensable..."
