Album Review

There's something very interesting going on here. Although the album's credited to Boo Boo Davis, he's only part of the equation, since it's others who bring definite hip-hop tinges to the music and give it a contemporary edge. Although there's a sense of adventure to much of it, and the loops and scratching form part of the canvas, it's still quite definitely rooted in the Mississippi blues that Davis has been recording for several years (the album's named for his hometown). He's a strong singer, a natural bluesman who can make the harp wail, while still capable of a true gutbucket sound on "Who Stole the Booty," for instance, or the delicacy of the title track. There's a fine balance in the work, and some unusual touches, like fiddle on the autobiographical "Standing in the Cotton Field"; rather than try to be one thing or another, this is an excellent blues record that's framed in modern terms without ever losing its sense of the past. Full marks to Davis for putting his music on the line this way and coming out a winner.

Taj Mahal with a twist of Hip-Hop Drummer - Drew Mississippi

This is a solid album. I heard the track "Let Me Love You" a few days ago on the radio, and I was hooked instantly. With the voice and soul behind Boo Boo Davis' style and the element of Hip-Hop drummer backbeat mixed together, you get something like Taj Mahal with a drummer and a Hip-Hop DJ giving him a good beat on the turntables, with a hint of scratch samples. He also takes it home with a few slow soulful blues tracks. Boo Boo is an amazing Blues singer songwriter, and he can wail on the steel guitar. His guitar and voice are center stage, with the Hip-Hop more in the background. I love what he did with this album, because it has something to offer for the entire spectrum of listeners. Grandpa, Grandma,Ma, Dad, teens and the little ones will all groove to this masterpiece.
