P / P Throwback: The Catalog of Junior Kimbrough

kimbrough1

Junior Kimbrough is the poor loner’s answer to B.B. King, Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy. Kimbrough, born in 1930 in Hudsonville, Mississippi, was a very laid back romance-centric southern composer who had a knack for writing simple, underground make out blues ballads. There’s nothing showy about Kimbrough. His love songs like Meet Me In the City are made up of upbeat rockabilly-folk guitar riffs and enchantingly endearing lyrics.

If you want authenticity and to hear a simple man play music with his heart on his sleeve, Junior is an artist to explore.
