Various Artists - Not the Same Old Blues Crap II

Its artists may not have the same currency as other labels’ rosters, but Fat Possum Records boasts the genuine article when it comes to raw, unadulterated Mississippi blues. Musicians like R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough and T-Model Ford play the primitive, gutbucket music of country house parties and southern juke joints. Crude, yes, but dangerous and electrifying enough to give the most jaded listener shivers.
