Someone has to keep the history of the Mississippi Sheiks alive, and it may as well be these cats from Texas. They're definite students of the original Sheiks. The Mississippi Sheiks wrote so many songs and many have become blues standards in one form or the other. You need to remember that the Mississippi Sheiks recorded their music in the 1920's. If you like this, check out the tribute albums of the music of the Mississippi Sheiks. The Texas Sheiks are on two of them, as are John Hammond, The North Mississippi All-Stars, and Bruce Cockburn, to name a few. You can't go wrong.
