Too Bad Jim by R.L. Burnside
Released: Aug 1994
Label: Fat Possum Records
Way better than the record he did with Jon Spencer, Too Bad Jim stands as one of the true blues releases recorded in the modern age. There's no shiny Robert Cray stuff here -- this is dirty, sweaty, pile-driving Delta blues. The hammering "Shake 'Em On Down" sets the tone, so just start there. The music sounds like it was recorded in the bathroom, like it should.
