A time capsule recorded in 1982 and 1967. It’s Burnside in the raw, playing solo on acoustic guitar as he did for his neighbors for most of his early career–when farming was still his profession. Burnside reprised “Miss Maybelle,” “Mellow Peaches,” “Poor Boy,” “Jumper on the Line,” and others among these songs on his more recent albums for Fat Possum Records, but these early versions capture his driving blend of one-chord rhythm with lightning decorations of slide and melody already fully developed.
