"Love in Vain: Robert Johnson 1911-1938" by Mezzo & J. M. DuPont (2014) A Christmas present from my beautiful and wonderful girlfriend this graphic novel is a stunningly powerful piece of work. It tells the story of the life and #legend of arguably the most influential figure of twentieth century popular music through striking #black &white illustrations and poetic prose. There are books that go more in depth into the story, but none of them hit the core of the matter quite like this astounding work of art.
R.L. Burnside / Too Bad Jim (1993)
“The devil: that’s who I’ve been serving.” - (R.L. Burnside) Haven’t listened to R.L. in a long time. Chaos and Rhythm. Awesome setting. Amazing North Mississippi blues. .
“One of the most productive album sessions began on a rainy Sunday afternoon with a rapid fore sequence of disasters. A bass literally
fell apart, a drum kit broke into pieces and finally a heavy glass door fell out of it's frame for no good reason, and was prevented from smashing the recording board only through the timely intervention of the producers skull. Far from being deterred, R.L. was positively beaming. He seemed to enjoy these incidents immensely, and by the time we'd cleared away the damage he was IN an inspired mood, ready to rock. That's when I borrowed a phrase from R.L's version of "Peaches" and started calling him Too Bad Jim.” -Robert Palmer

I am still as amazed by this record as I was when I first bought it, freed it off its wrapping and put it on the record player. The War On Drugs‘ fourth album A Deeper Understanding provides to me like it title suggests a deeper understanding into the world of sound in Adam Granduciel head. And it’s beautiful in there - let me tell you. Still somewhere between 80’s Springsteen and a place of its own. To me he perfected that sound that he introduced on Lost in the Dream with A Deeper Understanding. Swipe 👉 for a taste of Holding On.
