Product Description & Reviews

Grammy nominated R.L. Burnside is one of the most important bluesman in American history. His live performances, whether stripped-down acoustic or with a band, are legendary. After several classic blues records & scanning over 300,000 units, R.L. has firmly established himself as an intense force within the blues world. But R.L. Burnside is not just a great bluesman. Over the past few years he has been expanding his audience with critically acclaimed & ground breaking remix records. His previous remix record, Come On In, revamped the genre with loops & remixes & exposed R.L. Burnside a new, alternative blues audience. R.L.'s last remixes garnered heavy exposure on the hit show, The Sopranos, & also on MTV's Real World & many cop shows, not to mention a Nissan commercial. Selling out has never been easy. R.L.'s expansion into the alternative world continues with his latest remix effort, A Bothered Mind. It features some stunning collaborations with the likes of Kid Rock & Lyrics Born. Intense performances & R.L.'s trademark vocals & guitar picking are at the forefront of this gripping & moving record. John Lennon once claimed that "the blues is a chair…the first chair," explaining the music's primacy in the grand scheme of things. That notion is richly underscored on this follow-up to late-blossoming North Mississippi bluesman R.L. Burnside's initial 1998 remix collection. While Kid Rock's rollicking duet cum roadhouse free-for-all on "My Name is Robert Too" further grounds his rootsy reinvention, Bay Area hip-hopper Lyrics Born lays a lugubrious guitar groove on "Goin' Down South" and kicks up "Someday Baby" with a word-tripping nod to Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues." But those flashy guest turns shouldn't distract from the real attraction here: Burnside's own earthy, rhythmically propulsive acoustic (the moody "Bird Without a Feather" source recording dates to 1968) and electric performances, as deftly refocused and punched up by producers Mike E. Clark and Tino Gross. Listeners familiar with Burnside's re-worked contributions to the hit Sopranos soundtrack and its follow-up will find this collection a rewarding shotgun wedding of something borrowed and something new--a smart, modern take on the blues. --Jerry McCulley
