We gave it a B+

Modern blues albums rarely get the rackety drums and slippery slide guitar just right. But this CD of American blues and folk bursts with old-time voodoo bluster. Performing lesser-known songs by big names like Son House, Willie Dixon, and Robert Johnson, the players evoke equal parts fear and joy. And Mellencamp’s hellhound yowl leaves his old pop work in the dust.
