Album Review

This 1969 recording captures a relaxed blues session of Furry Lewis, Bukka White, and Gus Cannon that is full of warmth and gentle humor. These unwound acoustic tunes are sung and played neither for dancing to nor for damning you, but instead capture a mood akin to early-evening song swapping among these old-time gentlemen of country/folk blues. The elder of the group, Cannon (of Cannon's Jug Stompers), sings two tunes here — "Lela," and "Goin' Back (to Memphis, TN)" — while his uniquely tuned banjo accompanies him on a few more.

On the Road Again is an endearing bit of kicking-back by some seminal bluesmen.
