The title mostly describes the hardcore, DIY blues record label (Broke & Hungry Records) and its dedicated founder Jeff Konkel... but it also works for the music! This is a one-of-a-kind, 2-CD set that captures the real-deal blues found in Mississippi juke joints over the last decade or so — acoustic, electric, solo, duo and band. Highly recommended. - Roger Stolle, Cat Head
