Label: Rhino
The John Sayles movie Honeydripper is a valentine to the brilliant black popular music (the blues, gospel, jazz, RnB and rock 'n' roll) that used to blaze out of small, locally owned juke joints. Memphis Slim, Ruth Brown, Keb' Mo'... You just can't go wrong with the selections here -- even the Hank Williams cut, used to show where country music comes from, is fantastic. As a bonus, you get Gary Clark Jr.'s recreations of tunes like "Good Rockin' Tonight" and a surprisingly successful star turn from Danny Glover.
