We've teamed up with Fat Possum Records once again to bring you an exclusive pressing of a classic hill country blues album.
This is our 2nd exclusive with the label. The first one was Junior Kimbrough's All Night Long, which sold out almost instantly.
This time up we have RL Burnside's Mississippi Hill Country Blues. Just like All Night Long, we've pressed the record to translucent blue vinyl in a limited edition of 200 copies.
We plan on shipping these out in early October 2019.
More about the album:
It's a pleasure to hear R.L. Burnside's early acoustic blues played the way he learned them in the hill country of Northern Mississippi. These 16 tracks were recorded in the early '80s by Swingmaster operator Leo Bruin in Groningen, Netherlands. This is Burnside playing solo (and mainly) acoustic country blues with the only addition to his guitar and voice being the harmonica of Red Ramsey on "Rolling and Tumbling." While you can't go wrong with the purchase of any Burnside recording, these Swingmaster sessions portray a natural relaxed unaccompanied Burnside.
