R.L. Burnside Sound Machine Groove on Limited Edition Colored LP

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Recorded by folklorist David Evans in 1979 and 1980, these are R.L. Burnside's first recordings with electric guitar and also his first with a band. That band was the Sound Machine, a group he literally created himself out of members of his own family, blending raw Mississippi blues with soul, funk, R&B, contemporary beats and other urban flavors to make a marvelous amalgam of his own. Especially notable is a version of "Sitting on Top of the World" with Burnside on slide guitar that, with drummer Calvin Jackson's help, neatly evokes the sound and feel of a fife and drum band. Although Burnside became the darling of the blues crowd and hailed as something of an overnight success, one listen to this LP tells you he was already forging a new chapter in the Mississippi blues tradition with these recordings. Limited edition of 500 colored copies.
