Too Bad Jim
1994

By the early '90s, mainstream blues had essentially become a pile of overproduced, Jeri-Curled, Dan-Aykroyd-endorsed crap. The owners of Fat Possum Records mean to change all that, and they may just succeed (if they can stay in business). Too Bad Jim is an excellent example of North Mississippi Blues, described by the late music critic Robert Palmer as "a churning, jamming one-chord exercise in stamina and mass hypnosis." Buy it now, before Fat Possum sues their distributor again.
