I know haven’t been keeping up the site to my best ability but I’ve got a couple booze articles stewing right now–as in I better get to it before I kill those bottles–and once I get a day off and get to ease my mind into it I’ll get those to you.

In the meantime here is some fantastic footage of Mississippi Fred McDowell playing “Going Down to the River.” It’s visceral, raw blues of the finest form with the vocal delivery of a man possessed and the devil howls from the bowels of his guitar. What possesses Fred? Well of course a woman, and the pain of longing aching desperation that’ll drive a man to madness.
