R.L Burnside - Too Bad Jim

№22 - October 2014

On September 22, 2014

We burned down the delta tonight with voodoo and tomato juice and a pack of marlboro lights. We set it free. So tell'em we ain't here and play some half truths on the abalone and bone until the necks are bloody as a m-fer and someone takes us home. until the rest of this bottle is gone, and we admit we're making each other up as we go along.

Play the south right, while this whiskey makes us cottonmouths. Keep preaching the gospel of robert, and leave the tabs on the house. because this one is a cyclone, but it keeps on the lights. And we're all nothing but trouble, still out here picking our fights.

Fat Possum Records is proud to share this special edition of R.L. Burnside’s “Too Bad Jim” with the members of Vinyl Me, Please. Produced by New York Times music critic Robert Palmer and recorded in 1993 at Junior Kimbrough’s juke joint near Chulahoma Mississippi “Too Bad Jim” is Burnside at his best, with a family band and “adopted son” Kenny Brown on second guitar. This record and Junior Kimbrough’s “All Night Long” are the records started it all for us. So sit back and fix yourself a Bloody Motha and enjoy this record. - Fat Possum Records
