Thursday Tunage: Junior Kimbrough - First Recordings
Posted on 08 December 2011
This is the song 'Meet Me In The City', part of some of the earliest recordings of delta bluesman Junior Kimbrough. You may have heard this song before, The Black Keys covered it on their tribute album to Kimbrough called 'Chulahoma'. He was born in 1930 and lived to be 67. Pretty rad fact about this guy is that he grew up with the rockabilly legend Charlie Feathers, and even gave Feathers some of his earliest guitar lessons. Written on his tombstone is 'The Beginning and End of all music', a quote by Feathers about Kimbrough.
