Junior Kimbrough 1930-1998

Geoffrey Himes, Rolling Stone, 5 March 1998

DAVID "JUNIOR" Kimbrough didn't release his first album until 1992, when he was 62, but when Fat Possum Records issued All Night Long, Rolling Stone declared that it was "like nothing you've heard before." The Washington Post called it "the best Delta blues album in nearly 40 years."
