Junior Kimbrough: Most Things Haven't Worked Out

(1997 'Fat Possum') (48:45/08) Die letzte Veröffentlichung des im Januar'98 vertorbenen Musikers. Seine sicherlich einfache, doch unglaublich mitreissende Spielart des Blues war ein lebendiger Beleg für die Aktualität dieser Musik. An den Songs von Kimbrough ist nichts Geschöntes, die Musik - laut, dreckig, nahezu `punkig` - im Garagensound paßt perfekt und spiegelt ein unglaublich intensives Lebensgefühl wieder. Lange groovende Songs mit ausgdehnten Gitarrenpassagen. Toughes Material. Faszinierend / Another great musician who passed away in january'98. Tough garage sounds featuring Kimbrough and his band; some takes recorded live at his Juke Joint. This is deep blues performed by a man who knew what he was singing about. JUNIOR KIMBROUGH - gtr/voc, KENNY BROWN - gtr, GARY BURNSIDE - bass, KENNY MALONE - drums.

Junior Kimbrough & The Soul Blues Boys

It took a crusading music journalist with a well-documented love for the blues and a brand-new record label based in Mississippi with a decidedly fresh outlook to give guitarist Junior Kimbrough his belated encounter with fame. Kimbrough's hypnotic, primitive drone may not have displayed much commercial promise when he was a young man, but it entranced 1990s blues fans when they finally had a chance to hear it on record. Until then, you had to journey down to North Mississippi hill country to absorb Junior's singular brand of blues (he held weekly Sunday night house parties at his home-turned-juke-joint for many years).

David ‘Junior' Kimbrough was born July 28, 1930 in Hudsonville, Mississippi, close to the Tennessee border. While the rest of his family toiled in the fields, little Junior would sneak up and grab his dad's guitar off the shelf. Those early forays taught him enough to allow him to give guitar lessons to future rockabilly singer Charlie Feathers when both were lads (Feathers was so thrilled with Kimbrough's blues that he called them "the beginning and end of all music"). Heavy as his sound came to be during the ‘50s, Kimbrough found it difficult to make his mark.

He didn't record until 1966, Memphis producer Quinton Claunch shelving his sides. Tiny Philwood Records took a chance on Junior the next year, issuing his debut single as by Junior Kimbell. Juke joints were Kimbrough's primary stomping grounds until 1992, when he broke through thanks to author Robert Palmer, who captured Junior's singular sound in his home environs. His first album for fledgling label Fat Possum, ‘All Night Long,' was done live with his rhythm section—bassist Garry Burnside (local rival R.L. Burnside's son) and Junior's own son, Kenny Malone, on drums. Regimented chord changes were no concern; Kimbrough's modal conception, slashing electric guitar, and a vocal delivery not far removed from a field holler were throwbacks to an earlier tradition yet laced with contemporary sensibility 

Between ‘All Night Long' and a highly atmospheric appearance in Robert Mugge's 1992 Mississippi blues film documentary ‘Deep Blues' (Palmer was its writer and co-star), Kimbrough finally received some national recognition. He made a couple more albums for Fat Possum, but health concerns limited his touring. Kimbrough died January 17, 1998 in Holly Springs, Miss., his fame at last extending outside the rural Mississippi area he called home.
