This new album from Michael Jerome Browne is a fantastic collection of 1920s-30s rural blues brought elegantly into the here and now MJB style. Songs from blues legends Mississippi John Hurt, Fred McDowell, Skip James, Blind Willie McTell, Memphis Minnie, and Blind Lemon Jefferson are performed here with the kind of authenticity and reverence that only a master roots musician like Michael can deliver.
