A few years back, Robert Palmer set out to record the overlooked musicians living in the north Mississippi hills. After bringing Junior Kimbrough, Sally Mae Hemphill, T-Model Ford and Cedell Davis to the public's attention, Palmer passed away. Despite the tragic loss of Palmer, Fat Possum continues to record the bluesman of the Mississippi Hills such as Robert Belfour. Like other Mississippi Hills musicians, Belfour gets by with the mastery of a couple of chords and the thumping rhythmic beat of his low E string. As such, the songs sound a bit repetitive at times. Nevertheless, the vocals and songs of Belfour are pretty darn good. Devoid of any flash or high priced instruments, Belfour brings the raw excitement of the blues as you might find it played in any of the dilapidated juke joints in the Hills.

This effort by Robert Belfour isn't as varied or original as his outstanding first CD. The review written above is pretty much right on; there is some repetition, but Belfour is a major talent. His is a haunting voice, powerful yet lean and his guitar is sparingly beautiful. This isn't overproduced BB King ...;but blues in the tradition of heart felt soul-searching music in the tradition of Lightin' Hopkins. It you like original acoustic blues; you'll enjoy this CD. If you don't have his first CD, get that first effort before purchasing this one!

His music is awesome. I got to see him in person in Clarksdale Mississippi while I was visiting there. He was playing on the street and just had to have his CD!

Take a midpoint between the insistent churning of R. L. Burnside and the otherworldly eeriness of Junior Kimbrough and that's where you'll find Robert Belfour. It's not a bad place to be. I thank the Music Makers Foundation for bringing musicians such as Belfour to a wider audience.
