Fat Assed Rocking Blues

kenshima

On this record R.L. shows us just what make him the king of driving, gritty, drinking blues way into his older years. The whole album is great and even the tracks where he's accompanied by the Blue Explosion are good. For a taste, listen to "Criminal Inside of Me".

One of my favorite albums of all times. If you're a fan of the Black Keys, your head is going to explode when you hear RL Burnside. Also check out Mr. Wizard.

Buy it.

Like others have said - this is opposite-spectrum blues. Raw, edgy & atypical. Genre-bending crossover album is a must in any blues / rock / roots guitar collection. Refreshing & colorful R.L guit/vocal language with Jon Spencer's trademark experimentation - five stars.

A Ass Pocket of Fun

GusMcCrae

Raw, angry, fun. RL is like John Lee Hooker with a bad temper. If you like your blues dirty and mean don't miss this album. A must have.

R.L. + JSBX = 100% STFU

acidlung

This was already an anchor of my music collection before I joined. I think R.L. and Jon Spencer really defined the hardcore end of the Blues spectrum with this album. It's pure blues, but just insanely edgy and raw (yes, I realize that I am using two overused adjectives in music reviews, but they apply). If you like your music like your women, mean and rough, then this should be your new little bootie call.

File Under: From raw, gutbucket blues to soul, rock and pop with a similar unspoiled spirit Flagship Acts: R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Solomon Burke, the Black Keys, Andrew Bird, Band of Horses, Dinosaur Jr., Wavves, the Walkmen, Smith Westerns, Yuck, Tennis Based In: Oxford, Mississippi Like the Delta bluesmen whose records he started Fat Possum to release, Matthew Johnson is part of a dying breed.

They Say All Music Guide

Although he had been playing for years, it wasn’t until the 1990s that R.L. Burnside’s raw electrified Delta blues were heard by a wide audience. His new fans celebrated his wild, unbridled energy, so it made sense for him to team with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the warped indie rock band that’s all about energy. However, the very purists who celebrate Burnside hate Spencer, believing that the latter mocks the blues. As the blistering Ass Pocket of Whiskey proves, Spencer may not treat the blues with reverence, but he and his band capture the wild essence of juke-joint blues. And that makes them the perfect match for Burnside, who knows his history but isn’t burdened by it. Together, Burnside and the Blues Explosion make raw, scintillating, unvarnished blues that positively burns. – Thom Owens
