A Bothered Mind
New - LP - FO1013
Sealed 2004 Recording Featuring Guest Appearances By Lyrics Born And Kid Rock. “A Bothered Mind Is Perhaps The Most Ideally Representative Of All Of Burnside's Albums, Ranging From Solo Acoustic Tracks To Crunching Boogie Struts, All With A Light Dose Of Hip-Hop And Enough Scratching And Looping Effects To Make This Clearly An Album From The 21st Century. Amazingly, It All Works As A Cohesive Whole, Opening With A 38-Second Live Fragment Of "Detroit Boogie" (In Which Burnside Intones "I Do What I Want..."), And Then Closing With The Full Version. In Between These Bookends, The Album -- Aside From The Rather Contrived Kid Rock Track, "My Name Is Robert Too" -- Is Continually Fascinating, And It Never Stops Churning. The Most Striking Track Is Also The Earliest And Simplest, A Solo Acoustic Version Of "Bird Without A Feather" That Was Field Recorded By Folklorist George Mitchell In 1968. Two Tracks Here, The Umpteenth Version Of Burnside's Signature "Goin' Down South" And "Someday Baby," Were Produced By Lyrics Born (T. Shimura) Of The Quannum Collective, And He Gives Both Songs A Delightful Hip-Hop Sheen Without Sacrificing One Bit Of Burnside's Irascible Swagger. The Rap Interlude Lyrics Born Delivers On "Someday Baby" Is Nothing Less Than A Second-Cousin Update Of Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Perhaps The Most Surprising Song Here Is "Glory Be," Which Finds Burnside Exploring Some More New Territory, This Time Inventing A Kind Of Saturday Night Juke Joint Gospel. Listen For R.L.'S Chuckle All Through These Tracks. He's Having Fun. He's Pushing The Blues Forward, All Without Changing A Beat. He's Making Relevant Albums When Musicians Half His Age Are Washed Up And Creatively Exhausted. Is He Trying To Say That Rap Is The New Blues? Mostly He's Just Trying To Keep That Dancefloor Filled.” – Steve Leggett, AMG more
Acoustic Stories
New - LP - 0061
Sealed, Out Of Print 2008 180gm HQ Original. Recorded In 1997. “R.L. Burnside Is Notorious For His Gritty, Greasy Delta Blues, As Each Of His Records Since His 1991 Discovery Have Been Blistering Electric Recordings. That's What Makes Acoustic Stories So Refreshing. Recorded At New York City In 1988 With Harp Player John Neremberg, The Album Balances Originals With A Handful Of Well-Selected Covers, Including Three John Lee Hooker Tunes: "When My First Wife Left Me," "Hobo Blues" And "Meet Me In The Bottom." Burnside Is More Exciting When He's Electric, But These Are Unexpectedly Haunting Recordings That Prove He's Not Just About Rocking The Joint.” – Thom Owens, All Music Guide. more
