Editorial Reviews

(DVD + CD set) We Juke Up In Here takes viewers on a wild ride through the Mississippi Delta to explore what remains of the region's once-thriving network of juke joints - the down-home blues clubs that have served as the testing ground for blues talent in Mississippi for more than a century. The film pulls back the curtain on the state's contemporary juke joint culture through exciting musical performances, compelling interviews and rare on-camera experiences. We Juke Up In Here features stunning new music by artists both renowned and obscure and introduces audiences to larger-than-life characters like Red Paden, owner of the world famous Red's Lounge in Clarksdale, Mississippi. This deluxe two-disc collection includes a DVD featuring the documentary along with exciting bonus features and a CD soundtrack. NTSC all region, 16x9 widescreen, 60 minutes with deleted and extended scenes, French and Italian subtitles, artist biographies and a photo gallery.

This is an excellent DVD/CD combo.

And what a good idea to have subtitled the film, a thing that is very often lacking from US music documentaries and nevertheless very useful for non-Americans.

I visited Clarksdale a few years ago and I want to go back NOW!

This brand new documentary from Jeff Konkel and Roger Stolle gives a true vision of the today situation of the juke joints and the blues in the Delta area. Remarkably filmed, it intersperes strong interviews with musicians, juke joint owners and patrons with great musical sets. Very well filmed and recorded. Enthralling!
And what a good idea to have subtitled the film, a thing that is very often lacking from US music documentaries and nevertheless very useful for non-Americans. This essential set combines the DVD + a CD of all the songs featured in the film.

This is a film that is well worth watching multiple times. There are parts of the film that are very sad as it shows the struggles of the Blues in Mississippi, but at the same time it is inspiring watching the great Blues performers that are still there, thus the uplift (and that is in part what the Blues is all about). The quality of the cinematography/editing/sound is topnotch. My favorite performers in this film are Big A & The All-Stars and Terry Harmonica Bean. The interviews with Red are great!

This is an excellent DVD/CD combo. I do wish more of the performances were complete in the DVD but they were long enough to get the feeling of being at a juke joint.

The CD has longer performances and the sound quality is pretty good.

I can't really add much to the first reviews. If you like authentic music. If you've been to the North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic and Blues Festival and had a great time. And if you just want to hear music being played because they love the music you should get this set.

'Nuff said.

Splendid DVD (and companion CD) - well filmed and recorded, reminiscent of the exceptional "You See Me Laughing" blues DVD. It will be a long time before this CD leaves rotation in my car. Don't dilly dally getting down to The Delta to absorb this hypnotic, CURRENT experience. The Clarksdale-Memphis-Oxford triad is a gem full of vast delights - historic, musical, literary, gastronomic, social - to be discovered, all pulsed by the Mississippi River. I first came from the Virginia in 2009. It's pulled me back every year since - now it's a scheduled, annual event. Roger Stolle at the Cat Head store (and website) in Clarksdale can make sure you don't miss anything important during you visit. Have an unforgetable, historic good time!

Mississippi and the delta region has a rich history of blues music that lives on to this day. Regrettably, the venues for this heritage -- juke joints -- are being supplanted by casinos and other forms of entertainment that devalue live music and socialization around it. This documentary focuses on the few places that have retained these valuable historical venues and makes us appreciate those who few places and few individuals that have kept this tradition alive-- most notably Red Padon of Reds Lounge in Clarksdale, Mississippi. If you can't travel to the delta and see it for yourself, this documentary is the next best thing. We owe a great debt not only to the musicians and owners/proprietors of juke joints, but also to Roger Stolle and Jeff Konkel who document and keep alive one of the great gems of American musical history, past and present.
