Wow. Just wow. This is one of the GREAT blues albums of the early 2000s, and a classic of the North Mississippi Hill Country blues subgenre. Robert "Wolfman" Belfour hailed from (and is buried in) Red Banks, Mississippi, so he heard his father and others play houseparties and juke joints... plus, he also heard the sounds of John Lee Hooker and others broadcasting out of Memphis on WDIA. Both were in his DNA when he would play Red's juke joint here in Clarksdale every couple weeks. I used to tell visiting tourists that a night with Mr. Belfour at Red's was one of the deepest blues experiences left on the planet. This beautifully recorded CD is a bit like that. A big sounding acoustic album — half solo and half with drums. Highly recommended. - Roger Stolle, Cat Head
