Junior Kimbrough’s brand of the blues may be the sexiest music to ever rock out of a midnight juke shack. His repetitive groove oozes the greasy sweat of a hard days work. These are songs for when Marvin Gaye doesn’t capture the mood. The driving bass and drums create the rhythm of a filthy carnal aural aphrodisiac. Then there’s his voice, which groans the words “I love you” with a smoky lust. Some may be familiar with Junior’s music through The Black Keys, who unabashedly copped his sound on their early records and even created the excellent tribute album “Chulahoma.” If you dig this video Junior’s records for Fat Possum records certainly don’t disappoint. Don’t hesitate, just turn the lights down low, and put on some Junior Kimbrough.
