Jimbo Mathus Is No Longer a Squirrel Nutter

Bill Wasserzieher, Blues Revue, October 2004

"JIMBO MATHUS is a link in what I call the 'crazy Mississippi white boy' chain of music that goes all the way back through Elvis Presley to Jimmie Rodgers – white musicians playin' black music and influencing people in both cultures."

Total word count of piece: 1976
