Burnside, R.L. - Too Bad Jim
New Vinyl Record, Sealed - Burnside, R.L. - Too Bad Jim
Too Bad Jim is cut from the same cloth as it's predecessor, Bad Luck City. It features R.L. Burnside fronting a small juke joint combo, tearing through some greasy blues. However, Too Bad Jim is the better album, simply from a performance standpoint. Burnside sounds more relaxed and the band steps back from the spotlight slightly, letting the guitarist burn brightly on his own, showcasing his deep blues roots.
