Amazon Editorial Review
Everyone knows the blues came from Mississippi. Here's an update: They
never left. This compelling new DVD documents the heart of
Mississippi's current blues scene. This is the intensely personal music
recorded was captured by two self-proclaimed blues fanatics – Jeff
Konkel and Roger Stolle – on a week-long road trip across the state.
The DVD explores the thriving underbelly of a dying American art form
in the land where it began by filming real-deal blues performances in
its home, where it is most comfortable and authentic. Professionally
filmed largely on-location in the region's juke joints, house parties
and living rooms. Featured musicians include James 'T-Model' Ford,
Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes, Robert 'Bilbo' Walker, Wesley 'Junebug' Jefferson,
Terry 'Harmonica' Bean and others. For veteran blues fans or newbies,
this is the perfect DVD to buy or recommend. CD version also available.
