Cool photo on the CD cover, huh? Want to guess where in Mississippi that was taken? Ok. Actually, it was taken in Old Geneva, Switzerland, when label owner Jeff Konkel and I brought a "We Juke Up in Here" caravan to Geneva thanks to some Italian blues friends. But that's another story. Anyway, the album itself — which is excellent — was actually recorded in Mississippi, of course. (I suggested the album title "Duck & Beans," by the way, but to no avail.) Konkel recorded the CD at the Delta Music Institute at Delta State U in Cleveland, Mississippi, and the results capture a tremendous afternoon of hard blues — "Twice as Hard" to be exact. - Roger Stolle, Cat Head
